Five Minute Friday: Mighty

Mighty is a hard word to write about. There is so much involved in that world both in creation and in my home and heart.  The dictionary says Mighty means:
1. having, characterized by, or showing superior power or strength: mighty rulers.
2. of great size; huge: a mighty oak.
3. great in amount, extent, degree, or importance; exceptional: a mighty accomplishment.

I think I could easily describe things in my life with this adjective (especially the third definition). From my daughters’ love to God’s love. So we’ll do a brief poem here.


Mighty is … the seas churning in a storm
Mighty is … the mountains stretching to the sky.
Mighty is … the prairie reaching far as the eye can see, hiding beauty within.
Mighty is … the hawk soaring through the blue summer sky.

But that is world. In my heart ...

Mighty is … God’s grace that he gives every day
Mighty is … my husbands kiss when he comes home
Mighty is … my daughters’ hugs and “I love you”s .
Mighty is … my daily chores that serve my family.

P.S. I think my creative juices forgot to wake up with me. Not as happy with this as with past writing. But, at least I took 5 minutes out of my morning to do this! I had to get it done as I'm going to be attending a homeschool conference for most of today and didn't want to leave without writing! :) I felt rushed doing this writing as a result of the other plans for my day. I think I'll be working on this more at another time (don't worry, I won't edit this post, I'll just make a new post with this worked out a bit more). :)

  1. Hi Jennifer, I love the contrast you've drawn between the wild and breath-taking beauty of creation with the quiet, sometimes mundane, beauty of everyday life. You've painted some lovely snapshots of mighty things here. Thanks! Just popped by from #FMF, Mandy x

    1. Thanks! That makes me feel better about this work then I was originally feeling. :)
