It's time for Five Minute Friday again and this week the prompt is the word DOOR. This is the time to write for five minutes whatever comes to mind about the topic. We don't worry about editing or getting it just right, we just have fun.
Doors come in all shapes, sizes and colors. Some are decorated lavishly while others are plain and even may look ugly to our eyes.
Doors do have a function to open and close, to keep things out or in. Doors can be a welcome sight especially if you are looking for a place to go in out of the cold or heat or whatever weather there is.
Doors can also be confining. Maybe when you were little you were sent to your room for a punishment. The door was closed and you were not supposed to leave until an appointed time. That might have made you sad, or you might have used it to play quietly.
There are also other kinds of doors, those that are not physical but are in our minds. What about the door of our heart? Do we keep it tightly closed or just barely open? Or do we open it wide to share with others some love and encouragement?
It can be a very vulnerable thing to open our heart’s door to others, but if we have Christ living inside, He gives us wisdom to know when to open and close that door. He also gives us grace to share with others when we need to be a friend.
I love thinking of doors that have odd shapes like this one from my bedroom. Using my imagination all sorts of stories could come forth. It can be almost magical!
