Five Minute Friday – Write



Linking up with Lisa Jo again this week to participate in Five Minute Friday.

Today’s word is WRITE– ready, set go –

I don’t come here to this place often enough. To write and share my heart.

I want to, I have some of the best blog posts written in my head in the shower every morning. But I struggle with getting them down.

Struggle with finding the time in my busy schedule to do what I love.

I don’t know when it happened, this love of writing.

It started slowly at first, as a way of healing after our miscarriage. I was having such a hard time with getting through it and decided to start writing.  Being able to bear my soul was therapeutic.

Writing can heal.

Then it moved into a way to document my pregnancies and children’s birthdays.  Just the other day I went through some of old posts on my family blog and smiled at how much my family has changed since 2008.

Writing can leave a legacy.

Today I have this space, a place that I hope can build community and offer encouragement. When I write I can share my weaknesses and His strength. God has done so much in my life and when I write I hopefully glorify Him.

Writing can encourage.

Whatever the reason, I believe that this love of writing is a God given gift. I may not always have the perfect sentence structure, grammar or fancy words that impress. But when it comes from the heart, our words can have so much impact.

And that is why I write!

    Writing can leave a legacy. I have never thought of writing in that aspect, but it’s a beautiful concept. I, too, struggle with finding the time to write. And yet, when I do make time for it, I feel like the world has been lifted from my shoulders. I need to do it more often, as well. Lovely post, sweet friend!
