Here’s the deal. Five Minute Friday. You go find the little prompt at the wonderful Lisa-Jo’s blog, set the time and write for five minutes, and then just stop. Where you are, no edits, just publish raw words.

So, set your timer, clear your head, for five minutes of free writing without worrying about getting it right.

1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. And then absolutely, no ifs, ands or buts about it, you need to visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them in their comments. Seriously. That is, like, the rule. And the fun. And the heart of this community..

OK, are you ready? Please give me your best five minutes on:::

Imagine. . .

Do remember what it is like to dream as a child?  To imagine anything is possible?  I so often wish I could remember how to dream and imagine.  Life sometimes robs us of the gift of dreaming.  Reality clouds out the possibilities.  Fear keeps us from looking forward to what might be, what could be.  As I’ve tried to find my God-sized dreams this year, I realize that I’ve forgotten how to dream.  Too many days of trying NOT to dream have seemingly extinguished my ability to dream.  I imagine excitement for the future.  I imagine believing there’s more than just today. But, I have a hard time looking past the next set of bills, or the grass that must be cut, or the shelves that need to be dusted.  And, sometimes, I’m afraid to look at the future and dream about what might be.  Imagine the pain that comes with unfulfilled dreams.  But, life isn’t about living in the darkness and hiding from the maybes and the what-ifs.  God has given us the ability to dream in Him.  We just have to remember how to do it sometimes.
