Friday ~ Stretch

giving my brain a workout today
writing this post in phrases of 
six words using the theme stretch
sharing five random thoughts with you

1. tulips stretching as far as the eye
can see...row after row planted

2. still thinking of all the ways
the trip to Thailand stretched me...
It's always good to get out
of our comfort zones and experience
life in a different way and
see things we don't usually see.

3. Right now I can think of 
many ways God is stretching me...
as a mom, wife, sister, daughter...
creatively, spiritually, intellectually, musically and more!

4. Stretching your body and your self
can yield great benefits....I find 
that the act of stretching prepares 
me for the work of growth.

5. if you devote your heart and
stretch out your hands to him, 
if you put away the sin 
that is in your hand and 
allow no evil to dwell in 
your tent, then you will lift 
up your face without shame; you 
will stand firm and without fear. 
job 11:13-15

Linking with Six Word Fridays, Random 5 Friday 


  1. Lovely words and really beautiful tulips.

  2. Great post filled with some wise thoughts. I need to "stretch" more often.
    Loved those Tulips all in those rows upon rows.

  3. I've never been to the Tulip Festival and really want to go! You're the third person I know posting photos of it today.

    1. I can't believe you've never's so beautiful! This was my third time in 5 years. I hope to go every year because it's just so beautiful.

  4. Wow, so many tulips!
    And a lovely post, with them all.
    Have a great and quiet weekend :-)

  5. Love how you defined stretch. Is the top picture the tulip fields in the Netherlands? I'm going there in a couple of weeks. Hope they are still showing off!

    1. No, it's not the's Oregon! the Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm in Woodburn, OR.

  6. Hey, I like that 6 word Friday. I may have to check it out. Great post.

  7. Your tulips look amazing. I don't think ours will be that great this year. We had the amazing year last year.

    1. These aren't really "my" tulips : ) I bought some bulbs from this farm last year, and they are growing quite nicely in my garden, though.

  8. Love the tulip field and all the words you shared certainly are food for thought. Great ideas for Stretch. :)

  9. I was on a train from Paris to Amsterdam - years ago! - and all of a sudden - there they were!! Those tulip fields with the windmills! I was completely unprepared for the beauty. For the miles and miles of them! And I wasn't really a photographer at the time ... but your tulip fields have certainly brought me back there!
