Five Minute Friday : Remember

Welcome to Friday morning!

It's time for Five Minute Friday,

the time we set aside to pound the keyboard
for five minutes,

with no excuses, editing, or fear.

{Yeah, right!}

Here          we          go.


It kept me up all night,
off and on, twisting under covers,
winding my brain around the everything
I need to get done

lessons this morning
groceries to be bought transported stored cooked
dishes (always) - sometimes the sink
is like another hungry mouth
to be filled and emptied and cleaned-
and my hair - what to do
with this mop, untidy,
when I'm too tired to care too much
boys up soon, probably dragging,
and what will they wear?
I think I did laundry yesterday.

But most important - today,
every instant -
let me seek You

so my legs move with-
and my mouth speaks out-
and my hands offer-

Now it's time for you to give it a go!  Spill your heart onto the page
and link up with Lisa-Jo at The Gypsy Mama.
And give some other brave souls some encouragement while you're there.

What did you think?


  1. Thank you for reminding us of the most precious thing we need to remember first and foremost every waking hour and most importantly before we start our busy days of so much to do. Seek Him first!

  2. well, now, isn't that the truth? for all that we remember, and forget to remember, there's really just one thing we *need* to remember at all.

    thanks for the reminder, #40.

    love, #41

  3. Seeking Him first each day so that all we do is pervaded with His aroma...

    Wonderful use of the prompt 'remember'!

  4. That was lovely. Such a beautiful reminder.

  5. I'm impressed you wrote that in five minutes. Fast writing is not my strength. When I remember to seek Him first, my day always seems to go a little smoother. So glad I found your blog.
