Today I am joining Lisa-Jo and others for the 5 Minute Friday where we are given a word prompt and write for just 5 minutes simply for the joy of writing. No editing or backtracking necessary. No need to be perfect. Just words freely flowing from my heart to yours.
Within every woman is an intense desire connect. There is a longing to know and be known. And although God is the one who ultimately fulfills that empty place in my heart, there is a community of women here who I have grown to love and appreciate. Our hearts have been connected by the words we write and by the encouragement we give in each other’s space.
I come here every day to connect. And as I share my life with others, I pray that God would use my words to bridge the gap, to repair the broken, to encourage the distraught, to give life to those who feel hopeless. And then I jump over to their spaces to connect again — to check in and see how life is going, to leave a word of encouragement, and to let them know that they are not alone.
These women have become like sisters to me. Women who I am fully comfortable sharing my heart with. Women who God has brought into my life for this season.
