Day 116 - Write {Five Minute Friday}

Linking up with Lisa Jo Baker and her sweet, wonderful community for Five Minute Friday!

No editing, just five minutes of pure writing.



It seems like the only way this ADD brain came manage to get a single thought out is through writing.

Even my prayers tend to be written out. If I don't channel my thoughts on paper, they float around and I realize that after just a few minutes I've jumped somehow to making a mental meal plan for the next week.

More than just a useful way to focus, writing ideas seem to spring up everywhere. A funny sentence or a stray object can spark an idea and off I go.

My fingers flying across the keyboard, or with pen in hand they fly across the paper... desperate to release the sudden flood of ideas.

I love those moments... hours... days. Full of inspiration and blessed with the time to write it all down, that's when I feel I'm truly where I should be; when I'm writing.

It is one of my heart's true desires to be able to write full time.

I so love my little class of Kindergarteners, but I am so tired at the end of the day that not much writing takes place.

But that longing has not been taken away, so I know that someday I will write again.

Even now, it comes in fits and spurts. Just this week I sat down and wrote several thousand words on the novel I am currently working on.

I am ever thankful for the gifts and blessings that I have been granted in this life, and the love and ability to write is nothing short of a blissful blessing!

I am thankful for this love of writing that God has blessed me with.

I am thankful for the unending inspiration that He grants.

I am thankful for the longing in my heart to write more. I know that God has a purpose for that desire and I can't wait to find out what it is!
