5MF – Trust

Today I’m hooking up with Lisa-Jo again over at The Gypsy Mama for the weekly write-without-fretting. Today’s word is TRUST. There is never a bad or uninspiring word…ever notice that?    I’m tired already, just knowing the word. Yet here goes….take the 5 minutes and join me, won’t you? ~~GO. Why pick the practice I’m the …

What can I say?

Let me know if I’m the only one who can say to myself: “What do you have to say that’s so special? What could you add to all the thoughts already out there, that could make a difference or encourage what hasn’t already been encouraged?”   I’m sure I’m not the only one who has …

Spirit is willing…(but?)

Today, I was given two choices for a word. Both were pretty great words for a topic. I will use the other choice very soon, but I gravitated toward one pretty quickly, and it’s shaping up to be a theme of not only this day, but my life and it’s ever-changing phases…        …

Fear and Longing (a revisit)

There is a conflict between having so much to think about, so much to process or talk through, yet having no action of release to express it all. I could have been writing these past few months. There are certainly many things to say. Not necessarily to be heard by anyone else, but for me to …

Backwards….(5 Minute Friday)

The Gypsy Mama has encouraged us into another Friday! I missed last weeks, sadly enough. Yet I believe that it’s still a prompt that can be done, even if it’s past, even if not on a Friday. So take a shot at that topic too, in case you fingers have words they’re itching to type (she had …

On Forgetting…

The Gyspy Mama has an amazing, reoccurring prompt on Fridays. The prompt changes each week, but the practice is the same. She dubs is “5 minute Fridays”. You write for 5 minutes, without stopping – just allowing a natural flow from mind to fingertips and write. It’s that simple. It is one of my favorite …

Santa Anas

I’ve never lived in California. But I saw in a movie once, the explanations about the Santa Ana Winds that blow through every year. They say anything can happen… I take it to mean that change is in the air and the time where unpredicability can lose it’s stigma as a thing to be feared, …

The Fear of Dreams

*A comment of mine on an (in)courage post. While writing it, while it poured out of me, I realized “I should declare this more than once. Perhaps it may keep me accountable to seeing truth, recognizing walls and self-restrained leashes, and to trying to continue rather than stop dead in my incomplete tracks. For whatever …

Is it now? How about….now?

In 2004, I received a birthday gift from two kind friends of mine. I started it, I forgot it. I started it, I forgot it. I never got past page 49. Yet I always knew, in the back of my mind, that whenever I did finally pick it up, and not put it down until finished, …

Not on your own…

Today, this proverb has been staring me in the face more than once. “Trust in the LORD with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.” (Prov 3:5,6) I’m going through….well let’s be honest….I’ve taken residence in a season of …
