Five Minute Friday ~ Again


It's Five Minute Friday when I link up with A Gypsy Mama.  Lisa-Jo gives us one word each Friday and we get to write on that word for five minutes flat.  Our word for today is: AGAIN.

GO

The physical place may have changed over the years.  But the habit hasn't changed.  For the past 18 years, I awaken early so I can spend time reading my Bible, praying and writing in my journal.  I call it my morning quiet time.  It's become a necessity in my life. You see, there have been many changes.  A change in homes, a change in finances, a change in the freedom I experience.  But one thing that hasn't changed is this time that has become constant in my life.

The amount of time spent has changed.  When I wasn't working, I could spend hours reading, learning and growing.  In this season of my life, the time is limited.  But I choose to set my alarm earlier so I can make the time.  

Again I rise early.  My tools are ready.  Coffee set to go.  Bible and journal ready and available.  Pen and marker right there.  Meeting with the Lord each morning has enabled me to weather many storms in my life.  He has given me strength for each new day.  He knows the plans He has for my life.  And I want to live right in the center of them.

So again I have my quiet time before I venture out into the world.

STOP

Blessings and love,

  9. You are so precious Debbie. I'm glad you do have that one constant. I do miss sitting outside with the Lord first thing in the morning. Way too cold right now.

    Have a wonderful Saturday!
