It's Five Minute Friday when I link up with The Gypsy Mama. Lisa-Jo gives us a word as a writing prompt each week and we get to write for five minutes flat. Our word for today is: HERE.
Here I am. I spend hours here. I read. I write. I study. I pray. The hours slip by all too quickly. I long to spend even more time writing from my heart. But I must leave to go to work, to do errands, to visit, to live my life.
This wasn't the here I imagined I'd be at this point in my life. In fact, parts of me just want to cry out that it isn't fair.
But then I remember that life isn't always fair or easy. I am not entitled. I have lessons to learn, a faith to be lived out in the real world of hurts and disappointments.
So I cherish the happy moments. I am thankful for what I have. I seek out those every day blessings.
Here is the life I've been given. I may not get to choose all of the circumstances in my life. But I do have a choice in how I respond.
So I continue to read, write, study, pray and live my life by faith in God who loves me and cares about me.
Blessings and love,
