Share What You Have and Be Blessed

Welcome to Day 18 of #write31days. The prompt for the Five Minute Friday Free Writes is the word share. So much could be written about that word.


Sharing is something I love to do, maybe even to a fault. 


I freely give of what I have especially to help or encourage someone else.


God has blessed me with shelter, food, a loving family and many friends. The place I live has beautiful views and I love taking photographs. Often I share them on social media to help brighten someone’s day.



Share views


As you probably know, I love writing poetry and sharing it online. When others are inspired by my words, I am blessed and encouraged.


Today I sat in the rocking chair on the porch enjoying the cooler weather and sunshine.

Because it is a beautiful day I took some photos. They, in turn, inspired my haiku for today.


A Beautiful Day


Bright sun shines above

Clouds are few and sky is blue

A beautiful day



Breezes come and go

Chimes are singing happily

A beautiful day


Sweet red rose buds bloom

Their aroma fills the air

A beautiful day



Sharing is really not hard to do if we don’t focus on and hoard our possessions and talents.


When we share, it inspires others to do the same. I love it when my friends and I mutually encourage and inspire each other.


What a blessing!

  1. I’m your neighbor today at Holley’s :). If I had some rockers, I’d invite you over to my back porch–the weather has finally cooled a bit, and the trees have acknowledged that winter lurks around the corner.

    1. I’d love to sit on your back porch with you! Wish we lived closer. 🙂 We’re finally get fall weather and it’s a welcome relief from the heat.

      Blessings to you!

  2. Oh to be with you on that porch with you, listening to the chimes “singing happily”, smelling the roses, breathing in cool air to enliven the lungs,watching bright sunlight dancing through the trees, eyes drinking in the view while we sip at a hot drink (or two)! Gayl, you love to share and I love to hear about and see the world you are inhabiting through your photographs, prose and poems. It’s encouraging and inspiring. Thank you! Keep up the good work, my friend. Blessings, love and hugs! xoxo 🙂

    1. It would be wonderful if we could sit together on the porch, Joy! I’m so glad you are encouraged and inspired by my words and photos! That blesses me, dear Joy.

      Much love with blessings and hugs dear writer/poet/sister/friend! xoxo

  3. Dear Gayl,
    Yes, you help us all to see how beautiful sharing can be, when we watch the way that you include us all in your heart! Thank you for opening your heart and letting the Lord’s beauty overflow. He truly gives us so much to share, doesn’t He? Love & Hugs! xoxo

    1. Dear Bettie,
      Your words touch my heart! He really does give us much to share. We only need open our eyes and be aware.

      Blessings, love and hugs to you, dear sister! xoxo

  4. The photos are lovely and do inspire, Gayl! A pastor at our church said at one of his homilies that “It is not what we have that make us rich, but how much we are able to give.” May the Lord continue to bless your generous heart. Peace and love to you. ❤️

    1. Thank you, Irene! I’m glad you were inspired. 🙂 I love what your pastor said. It really is true.
