{Five Minute Friday}

I am hanging out with these Lovelies today.  5 minutes of vulnerability… right here, right now.  No make up, no curling iron… no matching outfit.  Just me and five minutes of words.  {grin}

~Writer~

I’m not sure I can quite use that word next to my name … yet.  I have only just begun this exploration, in it’s technical sense I have only been writing for 4 short yet glorious months… but this growing, churning hunger has been in the works for atleast three years.  It started when I was asked to write out my testimony for a friend’s blog.

And then I found my self struck with love.  Infatuated with the process.  Distracted by the syllables and drawn in right. between. the. punctuation.

“I can’t see how God is moving in my life until I am writing about it.”  ~Ann Voskamp

I absolutely agree with Ann.  The words that have poured out of my heart have revealed so much more about faith, love… about His work in the deep dark places in my soul.

“Writing is a very vulnerable thing. But it is blessed”. ~ Max Lucado

For me, life has always been processed through words in a journal.  But more recently writing has become a sort of expression of worship back to the One who has miraculously saved my life.  I hadn’t noticed all the ways of salvation until my heart started pouring out.

  1. I missed this last week! I love your thoughts here. And you ARE a writer. And so am I, even a few short months into this world myself. We write. So we are. And this, ” writing has become a sort of expression of worship back to the One who has miraculously saved my life. I hadn’t noticed all the ways of salvation until my heart started pouring out.” That is beautiful. And exactly what this is all about. Keep writing. Blessings!
