Joining Lisa Jo for 5 minute Friday today...
As Lisa Jo says... 5 Minute Friday is...
Unscripted. Unedited. Real.
It started because I’d been thinking about writing and how often our perfectionism gets in the way of our words. And I figured, why not take 5 minutes and see what comes out: not a perfect post, not a profound post, just five minutes of focused writing.
Word for today "FOCUS"
What I focus on expands, grows and becomes my truth.
What I focus on becomes the way I see the world.
It becomes me.
My focus seems to shift like plates beneath the earth.
Between a hundred different voices calling my name,
I rush in and out of focus, my focus blurs in the motion
...and often, I loose it.
What I focus on is such an intentional thing, such a foundational thing.
So I focus on the new lessons being learnt,
The squeals of delight instead of the mess of paint and paper strewn about the floor.
I focus on God, when the world tells me there are more important things to do.
I focus on the flowers she plops in a jam jar rather than the trail of muddy footprints she brings in with them.
And it's not that I don't attend to the physical things that need attention, it's just that I'm seeking that which lies beneath them.
Focusing on the eternal light
that shines through this temporal kaleidoscope.
