Five Minute Friday - Catch

On Fridays the Gypsy Mama asks us to dive in and write for five minutes only.  She says:
We write bold and beautiful and free. Unscripted and unedited. We just write without worrying if it’s just right or not.
This week her word prompt is catch

I could take a net
a butterfly
take a rod and reel and catch a fish
a surf board to catch a wave
dry twigs and leaves as kindling to catch fire

Someone throws a ball your way
gossip, rumours, idle words,
No, don’t open your heart to let them in

I didn’t intend
to catch a cold
yet the past days I have sniffled and snuffled
and coughed and trembled with chills
I caught it but I don’t know where to throw it back

But wait…
there is a love
unlike any other
and He wants to share
He’s blowing kisses
that drift on the breeze
store them in your heart
in your spirit
save them for the rainy days that are sure to come… 

Come on over to Lisa-Jo's to see what others have shared...

I was just reading this morning about the whole armor of God. How the breastplate of righteousness protects our hearts from feelings that we need to refuse and the helmet of salvation protects our mind from thoughts we shouldn't let penetrate.
I love your post about not letting some aspects of life "catch" us.
Came over from Gypsy Mama today.

This time of year it's hard not to catch something.
may you get healthy soon!
