Fresh {Five Minute Fridays}

(Taken September 2018)

The first fresh hour of every morning should be dedicated to the Lord, whose mercy gladdens it with golden light.
~ Charles Spurgeon ~


Mondays are not only a brand new beginning (week); but, it’s also a brand new day for me. It’s the day I begin anew in all ways.

It’s the day I write for five minutes.
It’s the day I review, research, and brainstorm for the 52Frames‘ theme.
It’s the day I do finances for the week — paying bills and balancing the checkbook.

It’s the day I am the busiest doing the things I wish to do.

Mondays are like the breath of fresh air washing off the stink of the past week. I try to discard all things1 placing the Lord first. Always.

I am consciously renewing myself in the Lord throughout the week; but, Mondays are the day I deliberately put the Lord first in my life for all things. Always.


  1. Shaking off the past (week), negative thoughts and voices, and etc.

Yet this I call to mind
    and therefore I have hope:

Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed,
    for his compassions never fail.
They are new every morning;
    great is your faithfulness.
I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion;
    therefore I will wait for him.”

Lamentations 3:21-24

  1. Beautiful photo with the droplets on the flower! I love how you describe your Mondays and that’s a great quote by Spurgeon. I’m your neighbor at #FiveMinuteFriday and I also wrote my post on Monday. 🙂 Blessings to you!

  2. The “first fresh hour of every morning” is a Spurgeon quote that I needed. Far too often I put off my time with the Lord and let the busyness of life crowd out or rush my time with Him. Thank you for sharing your thought, this quote and the lovely dew-kissed flower.
