{FMF} Work…

Today is Friday and I haven’t participated in a Five-Minute Friday (FMF) for many moons, but today I decided to give it a go. FMF is five minutes of free writing on a particular prompt. It is also a community of people who do this together, so I’ll link up with Kate and the others. […]

Present {FMF}

Present. That’s all we can be at the moment. Just here. We can’t change dressings or IVs or administer pain medications. But we can be here. Moving trays closer, handing over a laptop or getting more ice water or hot water, mixing a good cup of tea. In the next day or two we will […]

A Best Yes (five minute friday on a monday)

Yesterday I did something for the first time. A week ago I said yes to something the Lord directed me to do and it positioned me in a place that I’ve been wanting to go in a long time. I started walking out a dream. I’ve wanted to be a speaker for a very long […]

Grace-deprived (fsw & fmf)

There isn’t enough for me. There never has been. Probably there never will be. I can give grace to others but I don’t deserve any. Any of that sound familiar? These are lies that I have believed and often still struggle with. I tend to be grace-deprived. Not because God hasn’t given it freely I […]

  It’s Friday again so here I am joining the flash mob of writers who bravely take five minutes of unedited writing and throw it out there for the world to see. Today’s prompt: FINISH GO. I am staring down finish lines all over the place right now. I was caught up short at the […]

FMF {Bloom}

Lisa Jo Baker started this thing and it has taken on a real life wonderful-ness that I’ve had the opportunity to participate in at Allume. If you’re going this year make sure you take time for that little side event! 🙂 […]

fmf: {belong}

I saw the prompt this morning and I’ve been thinking about it all day. We are in this season of transition where we don’t really belong anywhere. We are leaving here, even if it is temporary. But we are not yet there. Friends on both sides are anticipating, on one side – our coming, on […]
