The Blessing Of Routine // Five Minute Friday
It’s that time again, where I get to join the beautiful community of Five Minute Friday writers. Each week we write for just five minutes on a word prompt. No editing or overthinking. No worrying about perfection. Just words freely flowing from our heart to yours. If you’ve never written a Five Minute Friday post, you should. It’s easier than you think (but sometimes a little hard).
This week’s prompt is:
Not too long ago I was completely bored by my routine. The mundaneness of the day had me dreaming of bluer skies, greener pastures. When friends would ask me how my day was going, my reply was always, “Same ‘ole, same ‘ole”. But as I live out my days, I am beginning to see the blessing of my routines.As I live out my days, I am beginning to see the blessing of my routines. #fiveminutefriday Click To Tweet
Getting up each morning, it reminds me to be grateful for the breath I’ve been given for another day by the Creator, something I never want to take for granted.
Driving kids to school and myself to work, it reminds me to be grateful that God has provided transportation and the means to make a car payment. So many are without reliable transportation.
Drinking my coffee each morning, it reminds me to be grateful for the little indulgences.
Interacting with clients in person and on the phone at the office, it reminds me to be grateful for my job and how God brought me to.
Making dinner each night, it reminds to be grateful for family and how we gather, chaos and all, around the dinner table (most nights).
Enjoying my nightly Netflix shows, it reminds me to be grateful for down time.
What routines are you grateful for?
