Five Minute Friday: Comfort

Five Minute Friday

No extreme editing; no worrying about perfect grammar, font, or punctuation.

Unscripted. Unedited. Real.

5 mins of writing on a set topic.

I’ve decided that if I ever wanted to do more writing….and to really get serious about it then I need to be able to just write. Simply write. So I’m going to join some friends linking up at Lisa-Jo’s blog and we shall see what fun ensues…..

So here goes….



It comes on a frosty winter’s morning, with fluffy socked feet snuggled under my soft, brown blanket.

It comes with that first sip of the day of strong, freshly ground coffee, the scent permeating throughout the house…. it stealthily creeps up the stairs, a very welcome intruder.

It comes with another hand in your hand.  The joining of souls, the linking of limbs with hearts united.

Comfort can come in so many ways.  In many varieties of forms. Sometimes it is a tangible thing that brings comfort, and other times…..not so much.

A word spoken at the right time is like gold apples on a silver tray.’ – Proverbs 25: 11

The comfort that an encouraging word brings, lasts.  The comfort that a loving word brings the ability to endure.  The comfort that a word from God brings with it much courage, boldness and fearlessness.

Let’s use our words to comfort.  Let’s use God’s words to inspire, to change lives, to point the way

  1. love. as always. i can even smell the coffee and the hope that comes with it (okay, that is partly because tony just got home and is drinking coffee… every blog post should come with a smell-maker too! adds to the dimension of feeling!)

    you are a comfort spreader and giver fee!

  2. Dear Fiona
    I love your description of how the aroma of fresh coffee drifting through house bringing you comfort. I just love drinking coffee. To me it has a magic ingredient that brings warmth and comfort to my heart. In South Africa we call coffee “boeretroos”. Roughly translated it means “farmer’s comfort”.

  3. “Let’s use our words to comfort. Let’s use God’s words to inspire, to change lives, to point the way” ~~ This is my prayer each time I write or speak. Thank you that your are a comfort.
