Privilege is the #FiveMinuteFriday word for this week. The idea is to write for five minutes on the topic without worrying about getting everything exactly right. I try, but sometimes I go over the five minutes. Other times I edit as I write. Whatever the case, it’s fun to do and I encourage you to join us.
I count it a privilege to live in a rural area near the woods and also with a nice view. It is relaxing and inspiring for me to be able to walk outside. I love to hear the birds, see the trees and the sky, and just sit and be quiet for awhile.

I am privileged to belong to a loving family where we are all supportive of each other. It is also a privilege to welcome people into my home and treat them as family.
Right now our immediate household is made up of my husband and I, three sons and a friend who seems like another son. Spending time with them is always great. Sometimes we play games, sometimes we read the Bible and pray together, and sometimes we just chill and talk about whatever is on our minds.
The Greatest Privilege
[bctt tweet=”But my greatest privilege is that I am a child of God. ” username=”GaylWright”]
Jesus gave his life so I could be free. And now he lives and intercedes for me before the Father. Because of the mercy of God each day is new. Through him I have strength to accomplish my daily tasks. He enables me to create art, write poems, make memories.

With these privileges I realize there is responsibility. As a Christian I am called to love and show kindness to all the people I meet. I pray that God will shine his light through me and that I might encourage others through my words, art and actions.
Jesus the Light Enables Me to be a Light
John 8:12 (NIV)
When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.
