Pressure

Five Minute Friday


So many goals swirling in my brain. So many dreams wanting to take root. I see them. They give me hope that new things are wanting to break through. This new year I want to take time to hone the craft of writing. Five Minute Friday is a great place for me practice and be encouraged by other writers as I write. I will set the timer for five minutes and then write. Here we go! I am excited to invite you in, welcome.


Pressure

I feel the pressure that comes with the desire to create. And yet the pressure also becomes a catalyst one that propels you to take action. Sometimes, we second guess ourselves and let our thoughts paralyze us.

But what if today instead we allow our minds to focus on prayer as we surrender the dreams and desires to the one who holds all things together?

here is a breath prayer for you as you find rest in Him.

inhale: Lord my stay

exhale: I trade pressure for your presence.

Gracefully,

La Primavera/Spring

a haiku on Spring

The shoot in journey
Growth now visible to us
In light death to life
Spring

El retoño de jornada 
El crecimiento visible
En luz de muerte a vida 
La primavera 

I shared this Haiku in the form of a video. you can take a look at it above!

Great hope and great loss collide
To bring healing touch
An honor

Metamorphosis

Both chosen for each other 
Learning to love, growing together 
Truly both becoming
