Five Minute Friday – TEAM
Hooray, it’s Friday! Every Friday, I join a special group of writers to write for FIVE MINUTES on a one-word prompt. No editing. No revising. Just WRITE. This week, the word is TEAM! Go! //
So, a couple of years ago, Joshua (now 18 years old) comes home from school and says to me, “Mom, when I die, I want all the people I did group projects with to lower me into my grave….” [ whoa, what?! What are you talking about?] “… so they can let me down one more time.” Ohhhhhh, I get it. He had read it on a meme somewhere, but it expressed his frustrations perfectly. I get it! Here’s a shout-out to all the moms who also hate group projects! I hate them. And in highschool, they get even worse.
We are not really a sports family. I mean, we like sports, but we don’t live for sports. We are a Culture Family. We do worship team. We do song-writing. We do drama, words, band practice, and music lessons. We do arts and culture. We do emotions and expression.
But you don’t have to understand sports in order to understand TEAM. Team is crucial when it comes to the arts! We understand needing everyone to play their part!

It’s about unity, and synergy, and blend. It’s about rosters and service and faithfulness. There is no room for dead weight on a team.
We adore our team and thank God every day for them! Can I brag a bit? Check out the video below. This is my team! As one of my fellow bloggers said recently… “No one does anything great by doing it alone.” [Thanks, Christina!]
STOP Ephesians 4:16 NLT says it this way…
“He makes the whole body fit together perfectly. As each part does its own special work, it helps the other parts grow, so that the whole body is healthy and growing and full of love.”
