It’s Five Minute Friday Time again. Here are all the details. Come join us as we write for five minutes straight. All the details are here.
Today’s Title is GRASP. Hmmmm…. Here goes. Warning, this may be a random thought post.
My friend Jennifer has a good topic for her Five-minute Friday. I’m gonna add my spin to it. I’ve often talked about wanting to write a novel. I’m not very good at writing, but I’ve tried over the years to write. I think my perfectionistic streak says that it has to be REALLY good in order for it to be a good read. Really good like Francine Rivers or Bodie Thoene. Where the characters come to life in your dreams because you’ve been reading the books and you stay up until 3 a.m. because you really can’t put them down.
So what do I do with this dream of writing? Right now I know is not the time for me to write. I have four kids, I homeschool, I like to make bread. There aren’t enough hours in the day to write. I like to relax with my husband and watch old X-files episodes in the evening. (That show is still freaky though it is 20 years old!) I grasp the thought of writing and I want to hold tight to it and yet, I have to have peace enough to let it go for now. I have to agree with God that if I write, other things in life have to go by the wayside. I don’t want those other things to be my children. So I let go of this dream for now and just rest in the thought that if God wants that for me, then he will give me the ideas for a book. He will give me the time to write.
The timer says I’m done, I could have rambled on.
