We’re Not All That Different

Today is Five Minute Friday over at Lisa-Jo’s.  The writing prompt is…lonely.

Write for 5 minutes…..Get Ready, Get Set, Go!


There is a chasm of difference between being alone and being lonely.

One is a choice, the other is not.

One allows for rest and rejuvenation.

The other can become a burden.

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28  NIV

Jesus understood. He still understands.

Sometimes just reaching out to others, can make all the difference.

The burden can be lifted.

A life changed.

When one realizes he/she is not the only one that ever feels lonely.

That we are all in this together…and that we are not really all that different at all.



OK, are you ready? Let’s see your best five minutes for the prompt:
