Today and 5 minute Friday

I have a busy day today. I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed. Pray for me.
We are having a Halloween play date tonight. We are going to paint pumpkins; it’s going to be fun. I can’t lie. I am a bit anxious, a house full of kids with paint seems a bit scary, but I just want to relax and enjoy myself!
Also, I am working in Grace’s classroom today. This is the first time I have been able to do it this year and I can’t wait. I miss being in the classroom with the kids and I am excited to see all her friends.

Ok, enough of that and on to 5 minute Friday.

Every Friday I link up with The Gypsy Mama for 5 minutes Friday.
The rules are to write for 5 minutes, no editing, just writing. This week the word is relevant.
So scary, but I’m doing it. I’m not a good writer, so I am learning.
Deep breaths….here I go.



I pray that you would help me be relevant. Relevant to others, to my husband, and to my children. Help me to connect on a deeper level and meet others where they are at.  Help me to trust in you and go beyond my comfort zone. Help me to be a witness of how amazing you are.
God I pray that you would grow me in my faith. Teach me to make my life an offering to You. And when I mess up and blow it, help me to own it.
Help me to glorify You in my life. Even when it isn’t easy. Which feels like most of the time lately.
Help me to serve you, serve my family and serve others in a way that shows them that they are deeply loved by You, God.
I pray that as my children get older, I would be relevant to their culture and know what they are dealing with at school.
Thank you, God that You want to draw me closer to You. Even when I turn away, even when my sin separates me from you. God I pray that I can model a true love for You to my husband and children.
Thank you for blessing me with my family, my friends and all the amazing people in my life.


That was a tough one for me!

Hi Melanie,

Just in case, you look for my post, it was deleted. Long story, sort of...FYI in case you look and wonder where it went.

Have a great weekend!
