5 Minute Sunday {Look}

I have participated in this fun writers flash mob once before. Today I am joining up for a 5 minute Friday Sunday. Call me an innovator.

 Basically,  you're given a word and have 5 minutes to write. Unedited. Right from your head to the keyboard. If you have a blog, I would encourage you to join in sometime. It is fun and a good writing exercise. Plus, you get to be blessed by reading other bloggers 5 min blurbs :)

So without further adieu... 


"Look at me, Mommy! Look!" 
"Mommy, you're not looking." 

How often do I glance but do not look? Look but do not see? Allowing this life to pass by. My children. My husband. The lost. Allowing my vision to be clouded by the worries of this world. 

Oh Lord, open my eyes. Help me to look. Help me to see. Help me to slow down and soak in the wonders of this world. The wonders that are infront of me 

Forgive me for my selfishness. To only glance or not even glance. 

"Yeah, yeah." 
"Uh huh."
"Isn't that nice?" 

Without even a care or second thought. Sarah, don't cheat yourself of the blessings. Just take a moment.


You'll be glad you did.

I'm on a BOAT! :)

Five Minute Friday


  1. Your littles are SO cute! And oh how I understand how hard it is to "slow down and soak in the wonders of this world." Help us, Lord!

    1. awe, thanks :) I think most of us can use help in that area. Our society is so go, go, GO, It's too easy to get caught up in all the doing that we forget to enjoy :)
