Five Minute Friday: And then some…

Today must be a day of firsts…my first DaySpring product review and now my first Five Minute Friday.  On Fridays Lisa-Jo, aka The Gypsy Mama, opens the forum for posts, but here’s the thing.  You have five minutes to write about whatever prompt she’s given you.  No editing, no thinking and rethinking wording, just go…just type it on the keys as it’s falling out of your head.  Once you’re done here, be sure to click here and check out some of the other posts on Lisa-Jo’s page. 

This week’s prompt is: And then some…share your week!

{gosh, I’m a little nervous}

GO:

So this week has been somewhat of a blur.  I’ve had a rotten cold and so I missed an entire day on Thursay…well at least most of it.  I slept most of the morning, got up and ate a little lunch and then went back to bed and slept till four in the afternoon.  I guess my body needed it.  I’m not complaining at all just so you know.

I think one of the coolest things that happened this week and that it occurred to me that I am a blogger.  Yes, me.  Wow.  How did this happen?  This is coming from someone who generally has a lot to say, but never thinks anyone really cares all that much to listen.  And yet, I keep typing.  It’s therapy for me to get it all out and what the neatest part of it is…I’m finding that there are people out there ~ complete strangers ~ who know exactly where I’m coming from.  Holy moley.  It really started to sink in this week that this is a ministry that I have embarked on.  My heart just does flip flops at the thought because I’ve desired for so long for God to show me where I fit in because for the better part of my life, I just well…didn’t fit.

But I’m not taking this thing lightly.  No sir.  Lord if I am in this for the wrong reason, then take it right away.  But as long as I am here for You, I pray Lord that You would be blessed and glorified.  Take my junk and lay it out there for all to see if it means that someone else might find that they aren’t alone in this deal.  My heart is an open book.

STOP.

Alright well you wanna know something funny?  For my first Five Minute Friday, I forgot to start the timer.  Duh.

    • I had thought about going to She Speaks, but I’m not really feeling led to speaking really so much, so I wasn’t sure it that was quite right for me. I’ll have to check Relevant out. Thanks so much!

      I loved Five Minute Friday…it’s funny how nervous I was at the idea of participating! Haha!! Sitting at my computer all alone, nobody but me and God knowing that I’m giving that one a try and I’m nervous! Sheesh. But it was so cool to link up and then have a chance to check out other bloggers that way.

  1. “My heart just does flip flops at the thought because I’ve desired for so long for God to show me where I fit in because for the better part of my life, I just well…didn’t fit.” – I know exactly what you mean.

    Great Post!

  2. “Just type it on the keys as it’s falling out of your head.” – oh yes, that’s it exactly!! What a great way to describe it. And I’m so glad you see yourself as a blogger- because the stories we share and the hearts we open up to one another are a powerful way of creating community. So glad you’re part of it and especially glad you joined in this week!! 🙂
