I’m writing this on Thursday evening as I’m hanging out with some of my favorite people on the planet at #fmfparty (Five Minute Friday party) on Twitter. Goodness, they bless me. Tonight we were talking about writing, and ebooks, and chocolate. Funny, my husband and I were talking similar things earlier tonight. He’s one of my favorites, too.
It’s time for Five Minute Friday!
I moved Five Minute Friday to my other blog through the month of October. It’s good to have it back here. Five minutes of free-writing on a one-word prompt with no concern for grammar, punctuation, spelling, etc. Talk about freeing! We all come together to share our writing at Kate Motaung’s. Such a lovely place over there. Why not join us? If you have a blog, try it out. If not, feel free to use my space below to write your five minutes and share it. I’d love to read it!
This week’s word:
This week I feel like I have turned a corner.
December 31 last year I wrote a post about January 1 being “the first blank page of a 365 page book.” I was set out to “write” an amazing story this year as I lived out my simple life.
I’ve come to the reality we have about 56 days left of this year. That means I have only 56 blank “pages” to write in 2014.
I paused this week to reflect on my life. To look back and to gaze forward. I’m thankful, and I’m excited.I look back at the “pages” this year, and as I turn each one, I am in awe of what God has done in my life. How He has guided me. How He has drawn me close to Him. How He has guided, blessed and protected our children. How He has encouraged my husband, and united our family. How He has given me a passion to write, and the ability to do it full-time alongside a part-time career.
It’s been good to look back.
I turn the page and look ahead.
This week I believe God gave me a glimpse of my future. And I’m nothing short of excited. I know it’s going to take work and dedication, but through His strength and peace, I believe the glimpse I saw will become a beautiful reality.
It’s your turn. As you turn today’s page, tomorrow is a blank one. What will you write on it? What details of your life will be written on the last 56 “pages” of this year?
Let’s give it all we’ve got, and make it a beautiful ending to 2014 together.
Okay, I wrote for 6 minutes 23 seconds. I couldn’t stop in the middle of my thought. It’s a blessing to have you here with me. Join me in finishing this year strong, won’t you? Thank you for journeying with me. You mean more to me than you’ll ever know.
