A Follow-Up to FMF: Open For Business

Last Friday I wrote this post as part of Five Minute Friday. It was written and published before I went to work.

Some people could interpret it as a rant – and I suppose it was.

When I went to a local news station’s website and saw over 650 closings it dawned on me that a few that were closed but the majority of Northeast Ohio was open for business.

I believe God put the idea and words for that post in my heart because the weather that day was not typical of a winter in Northeast Ohio.

What God Has Place On My Heart Now

God has me praying for my coworker and her family because her husband was killed in a car accident Friday.

Please keep them in your prayers this week.

Thank you and God Bless You.






Five Minute Friday: Open For Business

Linking up with Kate Motaung for Five Minute Friday. Today’s word is “Open.”


It was -11 degrees this morning when Rommie and I rolled out of bed – that was before factoring in the wind chill.

Superintendents announced schools would be closed Thursday and Friday on Wednesday afternoon.

While “closed” describes schools, “open” describes businesses.

Even though sub-zero temperatures have “Frozen” Northeast Ohio, employees must report to work. Roads are icy and there are numerous accidents on every freeway, but businesses are open. 


Are you that greedy that employees must risk life and limb to come to work?

The wind chill advisory is over at noon, so have your employees leave for work at noon if your business must be open.

The world will not fall apart if your business closes for one day.

Open your heart and let love pour out all over your employees. As you take care of them, they will take care of you.

“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”

John 13: 34 – 35
