This week’s Five Minute Friday prompt is SAFE. Five minutes of free-writing, no editing, free association thought = unplanned outcomes.


Safe means there is no danger. But safe changes somewhat depending on your context.

Are you talking about being safe on an adventure? Then be prepared and take the necessary precautions.

Are you talking about being emotionally safe in a relationship? Then don’t put yourself out there, don’t take unnecessary risks. Do think about your parameters and know where your boundaries are.

Are you talking about being safe on the road? Take your driver’s education course. Pick a care that has good ratings. Don’t drive in thunderstorms, snowstorms, tornadoes – you get the picture.

Are you talking about being safe in the kitchen? Be careful with knives. Don’t toss things around. Know when the stove is hot. Use hotpads. Don’t let the kiddos do things that they are not yet old enough for, tall enough for, or trained enough for.

Safe is all in the perspective. Safe is in the context of what you are talking about.

Safe implies that you have taken the time to think through what could trip you up and know how to work around that or have prepared yourself with the necessary equipment for it.

Safe means that you don’t have to worry or be concerned.

I am so thankful that I seldom do not feel safe. Because I know there are way too many people around the world who do not have that privilege. God has blessed me. I am safe.



At Home.

    It’s kind of God to make things difficult (unsafe) for us at times so that we appreciate the safety that we have in him. Thanks for the reminder. ~ your FMF neighbor this week. 🙂
