"One day at a time--this is enough. Do not look back and grieve over the past for it is gone; and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful it will be worth remembering."

Write it Down Upon Your Heart

I'm joining in for the first time in the
 Five Minute Friday blog posts, 
 hosted by Lisa Jo Baker.  
She posts a topic word and only one word. You are
to write for 5 minutes without stopping or editing (oh that is scary) 
 and then post.
Today the one word is

What would I do 
without my sweet pen and paper? 
 I love to write....I must write...It's a part of me,
 the person I was created to 
be from the beginning.

My time to journal is a sacred time for me.
  It has saved my life many times
 by listening to me ramble on and on about
the good times and the heartfelt hurtful times.

Writing helps me get it all out so I can 
leave my troubles on  paper
and enjoy the following wonderful moments 
that are waiting  next.

  It has helped me to LOVE myself more,
because later,
 after reading what I've written, 
I am so many times amazed
 "that I wrote that"!

Writing has been
 and will continue to be a "MUST" 
in my life.
It helps me to BREATHE in 
more of the beautiful things in this life 
that I've been given.

Thank You  God
 for putting the writing heart
 in my soul. ♥

(has it been 5 minutes already!)

So here is some encouragement quotes I thought
I would leave with you for today.

"Treat yourself to a little adventure.
Do something that's totally new for you."
Cheryl Hawkinson

“Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might” 
Ecclesiastes 9:10 

Hope you are having a wonderful week 
and please know that I am 
for each of Y♥U.
Thank you for stopping by to see me.

Love your post! I found you through Five Minute Friday. It's nice to see that other people feel the same way you do about writing. Have a blessed weekend!

Lee Ann,

Great post... I've been seeing two schools of thoughts on today's word: write. There's posts that talk of having a fear of writing and not having anything to write about and those of you who feel that it's in your blood and called to and meant to write.

Thank you for sharing! Happy Weekend!

So glad you stopped by my little place in the blog world! And doubly glad you joined us in FMF! I can so relate to what you said about reading back over your own words and thinking "I wrote that?!" It is such a good reminder that the Holy Spirit is at work in us, even when we don't realize it in the moment. Thankful to know you! Be blessed!

Cristina Garay said...

Beautiful, LeeAnn! I wish I have that precious gift.

You are a beautiful writer and one of the things that is so wonderful about your writing is that you are always encouraging everyone else....You take words from your heart and inspire the hearts of others.....

So glad to see you back blogging.....

Hi Lee Ann!

Passing through from the FMF linkup. Congrats on your first (of many) FMF posts! Exciting, isn't it? 'Write' was the perfect prompt for your inauguration. Keep on writing and keeping track of the great things God is doing in your life :)

Now that's a challenge! Well done, beautifully expressed.

Hi Lee Ann,

Writing is a sure thing to be honest with ourselves and just let the words flow! It's a wonderful way to unburden our hearts and to also express our thanks and praises. I love writing in my journal everyday, and re-reading previous entries. :)

Nice to see you writing again! :)
Blessings and bunches of hugs dear friend!
