Five Minute Friday...Crowd

Today is Friday! One of the first Fridays in awhile that the temperature here in Northern Minnesota is not only above zero, but in the double digits as well. That's two things to be excited about this Friday, the other one is Five Minute Friday. Rules are simple, one word, five minutes, no editing. Today's word is CROWD.


You've heard it said that three is a crowd. Well, I actually believe that three is a perfect number! If my marriage were just the two of us, we would be in trouble. From the very beginning of our relationship we invited God in.

And though a man might prevail against one who is alone, two will withstand him
—a threefold cord is not quickly broken. 
Ecclesiastes 4:12

When Brian and I started dating he encouraged me in my walk with the Lord. He drew me a triangle and informed that the closer we got to God, the closer we would get to each other. 

So, three is not a crowd. And because God is the center and there is three in our marriage, it makes us feel connected even when we are out and about and in an actual crowd of people.

If your relationship is only the two of you, then I would encourage you to invite God in. He truly will make your relationship so much stronger.


  1. What a creative way to write with today's prompt. I love it. And it's so true. Glad to have popped in.

  2. This is such a great 'take' on the word prompt - and such important advice! Amen... there is three in ur marriage as well and I wouldn't know how to be married if it was just the two of us! Visiting from Lisa-Jo's today and I am so glad I did!

  3. Love it! I've used this triangle illustration many times, but I've never heard anyone else who speaks of it. One of my favorite verses is Romans 15:5-6 NASB...another unity promoter for marriage. Yours is a very unique approach to this week's FMF prompt. Blessings


Thanks for Pondering with me! Let me know your thoughts!
