Friday Five: Word Association, Redux

It's a while since I played Friday Five on Revgalsblogpals

This one is patterned off an old Friday Five written by Songbird, our Friday Five Creator Emerita:

Below you will find five words. Tell us the first thing you think of on reading each one. Your response might be simply another word, or it might be a sentence, a poem or a story.

1. vineyard
Growing up we had a grape arbor and some of my favorite times were spent sitting under the vines by myself eating those thick skinned Concord grapes. I especially liked peeling off the purple skin to see the pale green fruit inside. Do you suppose this could have something to do with why I like to be outdoors surrounded by green growing things for prayer and meditation?

2. root
vegetables - potatoes, beets, carrots.

3. rescue
The Utah coal miners - just this morning news came that 3 of the rescuers were killed and others injured trying to reach the trapped men. Someone on the news said what better way to die than in the attempt to save lives. Sounded kind of biblical.

4. perseverance
endurance with a hint of stubborness

5. divided
Christianity - hence the Disciples' motto "Unity is our polar star"
