Five Minute Friday: Race

Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking

Five Minute Friday: Race


my days are a blur and my heart is just hoping to hang on.  every time i'm away from the girls for more than a couple hours they get bigger, i can see it.  when i get rushed i get mean and when i'm mean i regret it.  slow down.

do this and do that. get this pile finished only to have that pile grow.  take out the trash, empty the dishwasher and fill another cup with milk.  hold back tears during hard phone conversations with ones that i wish lived closer.  then it is the end of the day.

what have i accomlished?  am i closer to the goal?  did i take time to make goals? 

here is what i know...
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, 2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. 3 Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.
Hebrews 12:1-3



  1. I can really relate to your post. I am forever rushing, nagging and regretting. It is so hard to slow down and realize that the little moments are the most important ones.

    Thank you for sharing and the scripture is perfect!


  2. Hi there! You are the person before me at 5 Min. Fri. so I am popping by for a visit! While I am not yet a mom, I can relate! I think sometimes life can feel like the same old get through the day with all our tasks to do type of thing. I wrote about slowing down on part of mine too. Blessings to you and have a great weekend!
