Every Friday Lisa-Jo invites us to write for five uninterrupted minutes. She provides the word and a rule ~ "Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking."
My Friday writing usually arrives on Saturday mornings when I have the opportunity to write in the quiet of my house. For five minutes I type with no worries of editing, formatting, or any other formalities as I write from the heart.
This weeks word is HERE.
A prayer was cried out to God years ago. I prayed for an old house. A house with a dining room in which friends and family could join together to break bread. A house with a front porch in which I could sit on summer days like this one and watch the rain. A house which would provide a room to sleep for my children. A house in which to make memories.
God answered that prayer. Today I lifted up my praises to the God who provide this. This here. It's not my current heart's desire as I dream of a hobby farm with acres of land to plant. But it is a place that houses those I love. Today I give myself and my home to a God that cares. God please fill this house with love, fill it with sweet memories, fill my heart with joy as I accept my HERE. Here I am, God and here is my house, use me to do your will.
