I am so excited and nervous to share my next writing adventure. I have accepted the challenge of writing every day in the month of October (31 days!) for five minutes on a given topic. I prayed about this and believe it will test my skills outside of the “writing box” for me. It will stretch me to be a little more spontaneous and focus less on perfecting the “ultimate blog piece”. I am coming up on a year of blogging and I am trying new lessons to broaden my learning horizons. I will set the timer for five minutes and what I truly write in the select time will be between the // // slashes. I will confess to reviewing my words for spelling and grammar. I may also add a little lagniappe post writing outside of the // // to round out my thoughts. So please indulge me for the next 30 days as I attempt to free write. Here I go-WOO HOO!
//I woefully pour my body out of bed, put on my clothes and head out the door. Unconsciously I put one foot in front of the other and move forward. It is so early. Slowly the world lightens up, filling with a glow. I breathe deep and am void of all thought. One foot in front of the other takes me on my morning walk. I notice the quiet and breathe again. No music and no talking. There is a low humming of traffic in the background and birds are chirping. My mind slowly wakes and I start my conversation with Him. I notice His hand has painted the sky a gorgeous pink, orange, and blue with a swirl of white. I love this quiet time with my Father. All is well with my mind, heart, body, and soul. It sets my day right when I commune with God while I exercise. It is a blessing to be able to get up and move with very little effort, unlike so many which I pray for daily. By the time my walk has ended I am humming a song and I have a smile on my face. Thank you God for another beautiful day. It is time for me to go after it and MAKE IT COUNT!//
