I am linking up for the Five Minute Friday. The FMF is hosted by Kate Motaung over at our Five Minute Friday website. Today’s word prompt is “routine” We would love to have you join us.
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through him, and without him not one thing came into being. What has come into being in him was life, and the life was the light of all people.”–John 1:1-4 (NRSV)
My fingers click against the keys as words spill onto the page. A gift bestowed upon me by God. The routine of words that carry over into #fmfparty and #slatespeak on Thursday nights.
It’s a llittle crazy, but every Thursday night I pull up Twitter on my phone and IPad. I follow along. Listening, learning, engaging with online communities. Another gift that God has shown me.
Through words, we tell stories and speak of life’s realities. Sometimes our routines of life are disrupted by unexpected events. The sudden loss of a friend. Realizing that Lent this year has made you weary. The joy of new birth. And the list goes on.
Yet in the occurance of these events, it is the routine of words that help me to process; that help me to remember that my words, our words embody the love of God shown through God’s one and only son Jesus Christ; the very Word made flesh.
For is in the routine of words, that I find new life.
Tara…I know you pray for friends through Lent – please pray the Lord will bring us a buyer for our house. Thank you love. xo
You got it! xoxo
Thank you for sharing a slice of your life
You are welcome!
Words are such a large part of our lives aren’t they?
Yes indeed they are!
I agree, sharing our words and stories is one of the best routines.
That is so true. Words are the routine that helps so much. Thank you for sharing your heart always, Tara. Praying for you this week.
Thank You! The prayers are so greatly appreciated!
Words are a gift. Thank you for sharing your beautiful words with us. God bless!
You’re welcome! God bless you too!
Oh Tara, how beautiful. I need to remember the comfort of these routine words. And to pause and recognize how thankful I am for a God who has given us such rich language.
Me too! And thank you!
Love it Tara! Last sentence is powerful! Cindy
The routine of words helps you process the unexpected events of life.I love that, Tara.
I certainly agree, as you undoubtedly know!
very beautiful; very true! and the sacraments are visible words. Blessed Holy Week / Triduum to you!
Thank You! And same to you!
The routine of words…interesting thought. I’ve been quite busy lately and haven’t had any time to write. And no passion for it either, which made me really sad. Words have never let me down…until now…
I am sorry that the words are letting you done. Praying they return soon.
Your words are truly a gift and I am so thankful for them. I’m in the #67 spot this week.
I am so thankful for the FMF community which catapulted me into a routine of writing (and meeting friends in the process!) Writing is how I process. If I don’t have time to write, I feel a bit off balance.
Me too, me too!
I love how words have so much power. Keep speaking words of life into your circle, Tara!
Me too! And I will! 🙂
