Five Minute Friday - Tender

Around here we write for five minutes flat on Fridays.

We write because we want to, not because we have to. We write for fun, for joy, for discovery.

We just write without worrying if it’s just write or not.

Won’t you join us?

1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. Go a little overboard encouraging the writer who linked up before you.

OK, are you ready? Give me your best five minutes on: TENDER

Tender is me choosing soft words. Grace words. Instead of giving into my flesh, that is naturally hardened.

Tender is the heart of my children. Hearts that are learning. Learning, I pray, to be loving…to be compassionate…to be filled with Jesus.

Tender are the hands of Jesus that offer us Grace and Mercy.

Tender are our feelings when we open up to our Savior. To this opening of hearts and feelings He brings with Him His own tenderness. He brings His unfathomable love, compassion, and healing.


Embracing Tenderness Today,




  1. So true. Somehow those moments when we are extended grace or extend it to others feel so tender, don't they?

  2. I love your first sentence: "Tender is me choosing soft words." We often forget how important our words are. They can lift up or tear down. May we choose soft, encouraging, uplifting, loving words.

    Lovely post...
