My 5 Minute Fridays

Slow // Five Minute Friday

Thrilled to be writing among the beautiful Five Minute Friday community. This is where we write for just five minutes, on a word prompt. We don’t worry about perfection or making it just right, but rather allow the words to flow freely without over thinking. If you’ve never written for the Five Minute Friday, come join us. You will be glad you did!

*I originally wrote this post thinking the word was still, so some editing had to be done. Not too much as still and slow are interchangeable here. 🙂

If I were being honest (and I always am), I would tell you that I fear slowing down. Perhaps

The outcome leaves me a little better off than before, but with no real change.

God has shown me His hand again through His very mysterious ways.

When The Path Of Trust Meets The Road Of Disappointment

I was certain that God would come through.  We prayed, cried, read the Word and chose to believe that He would make a way where there seemed to be no way.  Surely, God would not ask us to give up our house, the one our children were raised in, the one that displays my husband’s handiwork throughout.

We had so much hope, so much faith to believe that God would provide a way for us to keep our home.  But the effects of my husband’s ongoing unemployment, and the fact that we could no longer keep up with an escalating mortgage took it’s toll and we were faced with two choices
