Five Minute Friday: Woman

It's Five Minute Friday when I join up with other writers. We receive a one-word prompt and get to write for five minutes flat.  Our word for today is WOMAN.


I'm glad I'm a woman. Some cultures don't value and celebrate women. But how thankful I am to be free to be who God created me to be; a woman.

I cherish my friendships with other women. I have many lifelong friends. And along the way, I've developed relationships with women from a variety of backgrounds. I've even grown to know and care about many blogging friends, and I never met them in person. But you do get to know people when they share their words from the heart. I  love that.

There's something different about women. I don't mean to stereotype, but we tend to love to share our lives with one another. My husband laughs because he doesn't quite get it.

There was a popular song back in the early 70's that Helen Reddy sang titled "I am Woman". I remember singing the words. We've come a long way and women have so many choices today. Let's be who God created us to be and use our many unique gifts and abilities.


Blessings and love,

Debbie Petras

  4. Great post, Debbie. You bring out all the good about being a woman. I'm with you...so glad I am a woman. It's funny, my sons would never want to be female. This is a good thing, but I'm so glad this is how God created me.

    Thank you for this perfect exhortation: "Let's be who God created us to be and use our many unique gifts and abilities"

    Have a great weekend!

  5. Lovely thoughts, Debbie.What a blessing: being free to be who God created you to be. My heart and mind have been focused lately on those among us who are not enjoying that freedom and fulfillment. We seem to have come a long way in our culture, and I think we have, but sometimes I wonder. Praying for the many women with shattered lives and destroyed opportunities. May we all have the opportunity to "be who God created us to be and use our many unique gifts and abilities." Number 16 at FMF this week.


I love to read your comments! I know you have something to share so join in the conversation. And thank you for taking the time.
