Welcome to Day 25 of #write31days. Because is the prompt word for the Five Minute Friday Free Writes. This word is often used when giving a reason for something in answer to a question asking why. Sometimes people give it as a one word answer, which really doesn’t answer a question at all.
Why are people able to create things? My reasoning is because God created us in His image.
He is the great Creator who made heaven and earth out of nothing.
We can’t bring forth something from nothing, but we can use materials we have to create a new thing. We also use words to create stories and poems for others to enjoy.
Standing on my porch
Gazing at the clouds and trees
What a pretty sight
Because I live in a rural area, I can go outside and enjoy the trees and sky. I listen to the sounds of birds, insects, the wind rustling the leaves and more. Whether it is sunny or rainy, I enjoy the view right from my front porch. A lot of my poetry is inspired by the time I spend there.
Because God made a beautiful world, I can enjoy the sights and sounds of nature.
Sometimes the sky is clear with very few clouds. Another day the clouds may be constantly changing shape. When dark clouds fill the sky I know that rain is probably not far behind. The beach is a good place to watch the clouds.
I write poetry and take photos, not only because I love it, but to brighten the day for others.
You might use other means like painting or drawing or cooking, etc. to create something beautiful to share. No matter what we do, we can use our talents to bring glory to God and encourage others. Sometimes our gifts are unseen, like when we spend time in prayer for another, but they are just as important.
What inspires you? How do you find ways to be creative in your life?
