Five Minute Friday – Lost

Friday. Today I set my timer for 5 minutes and see where my fingers take me.  No backspacing, no hushing my heart, no worrying over the grammar, or run-ons, or fragments.  It’s about writing down those first thoughts, being open to sharing them, and then encouraging others brave enough to do the same.

We join arms with Lisa-Jo, who graciously hosts us each week, by linking up them stepping out our front doors into others’.  The one rule: you must visit at least the one who linked up before you and leave encouragement for them in their comments.  Pretty simple.

(Oh, that I would treat my own next door neighbors with the same courtesy!)

We would love for you to join us.  No blog?  No problem, just leave your post in the comments on the Facebook page wall here.

Five Minute Friday

Are we ready?  Here are my five minutes on…..


I once was lost, but now I see.
The lost and found box.
Where are my lost keys, lip gloss, pen, what have you?

So much time looking for lost things, time wasted over the insignificant, generally.

How much time do I spend praying for the finding of the small lost things?  How much time do I spend praying for the finding of the only real thing of significance?

Am I trying to seek out the lost souls?  Am I praying that I truly find God in my everyday, but more importantly in my heart? Am I praying that others do the same?

After praying, am I then diligently looking for what I have asked to be shown?

For the keys, the lip gloss – most assuredly.

For the souls, for truth, for hope – not as much.

Oh that I would seek for the truly important and eternal with as much fervor!

Stepping Back Into the Blogging Waters

I got this tweet while I was on vacation last week:

There is nothing quite as encouraging as a friend who tells it like it is and calls you out when you need it.  So today I’m dipping my toes back in the blogging waters.  Just taking a sit on the steps here and remembering what it feels like.

I’ve had a great time of refreshing and ideas are starting to flow again.  I’m not sure how many will end up here, but I have this space to steward for better or for worse right now.  Thanks for your patience and constant encouragement.

It’s okay if you want to sit on the step for a minute, but eventually you need to get all wet.  

Now, what is that thing you’ve neglected and need to jump into?
