The rules are simple, just write for 5 minutes flat on the prompt she gives. No worrying about about perfection or being good enough. No editing and backspacing and writing and re-writing. Just five minutes of worry free writing.
Today’s topic: CHANGE.
Here we go.
We are on the brink. Hanging on the edge of change. Counting the days until her life changes in a real big way – my life too.
We’ve been shopping for dorm room essentials. And she’s been texting with her new roommate. Our youngest will be going away to college.
Change brings with it a roller coaster of emotions. Excitement one moment and oh-my-heart-aches-cause-i’m-going-to-miss-her the next. But excitement has been winning out as I anticipate this new phase in my daughter’s life.
And this change has been the focus of this mama’s prayers.
I listen to myself as I remind her of our God who never leaves us or forsakes us, our God who promises to be her provider, our God who has a plan for her life. A specific plan just for her – one that doesn’t look like anyone else’s.
Maybe it’s me that needs the reminder.
