I am linking up with Five Minute Friday. The instructions are ” Write for five minutes on the word of the week. This is meant to be a free write, which means: no editing, no over-thinking, no worrying about perfect grammar or punctuation. Just write. ”
This week’s FMF writing prompt is: PEACE
Peace: the first thing that pops into my mind is the phrase “Peace that passeth undersrtanding”
I figure if I write five minutes and don’t edit this is apt to be all over the place. My brain does not understand the concept of ‘peace and quiet’. I am like a computer with too many tabs open and bordering on frying the mother board. I am sure that is a pretty common feeling for a lot of mothers.
I’ve had a bit of clarity this week. To bring more peace I need to stop trying to please everyone and trying to mold myself to make everyone like me. I need to focus on my priorities. God gave me life and it is my job to take care of this body and mind by putting on my oxygen mask before trying to be all and do all.
I next need to put my family before everything and everyone else. God blessed me with this family and it is my job to let them know they are valued and loved and not always put them 2nd or 9th on my to do list.
I do need to find some more quiet peaceful time to listen for Gods voice in his plans for my life instead of heading off on to whatever I think is supposed to be my next great adventure.
Ever had one of those weeks,? Me too! Hooray for Friday! TGIF. I love family time and look forward to it all week.
Searching my old posts I wrote this on Feb 20 of 2021 “Pebruary 20: Peaceable I really really would like to see a LOT more of this in the world. Refer to the word Unity. I want to see us all more united and working along peacefully. I want a more peaceable world for the future.”
The other day this verse popped up in my email from a homesteader that I follow and I made it my desktop image. The image has cute little sheep and saysFive Minutes Friday: Peace, Serenity and Harmony Click To Tweet
