Five Minute Friday

Every Friday, I join an online Christian writing community, Five Minute Friday. We are given a one-word prompt and write – unscripted, unedited, pure free-write – for 5 minutes. Five Minute Friday is a great place to hone my writing 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.
I am finding my self in reveries. I am delighting in that tiny grace, because grief has clouded a lot of the last two months. Lately beauty has been a sort of buoy reminding me to breath when all I feel is numbness and fog. So, to find myself daydreaming of the future has me exhaling gratitude and smiling.
I am so grateful for my work with Noonday Collection, and this summer they will be taking me on a trip to Peru. What an unexpected gift. I am so excited that soon I will be surrounded by a culture that transcends time. I will soon hear Spanish mainly spoken, awakening dormant recesses of my soul. Soon I will taste the goodness that will be shared with me through the hospitable smiles as the table is set.
Soon, I will revel in the amazing skills of Artisans that make beauty a staple part of everyday life. Soon I will know myself in a new way, as I allow my heart to be transformed by the People of Peru. To travel with an open heart is always my goal. I have seen the shift in my heart as I approach a new place with grace and not over burden it with expectations to entertain me. Instead I allow it to wash over me, teach me to observe, and allow it to nourish me with its delicacies.
