5 Minute Fridays/ Spiritual

I Am A Message Bearer


{participating in 5 Minute Friday-write for 5 minutes, with a prompt.  Unscripted. Unedited. Real.}




Messenger.  A message bearer.  One who brings a message.

What message shall I preach?

One of slow living.

Why should we slow?

I don’t know about you, but naturally I just spin.  I can let life busy, spin out of control, and all the sudden I am busy, my brain is busy, my body is busy, and I can’t focus.  I lose sight of what is most important, I forget to count the gifts…heck, I’m don’t even see them because of the spinning and  distraction.

Slow allows focus.

Slow allows thought.

Slow remembers that we only have one shot at this life.

Slow allows process.

Slow makes time for reading, writing, creating, cooking, thinking, forgiving.

Slow embraces.

Slow looks at our children & sees, not glancing through but seeing into their eyes.

The message of slow is important, as it allows one to truly live.

We all want health. Health takes thought & prioritizing.  A thinking that takes prioritizing of time.

We all want meaning, purpose, fulfillment, peace & wholeness.

Wholeness starts with Him. His holes make us whole, I slow and ponder.

I am a messenger, and this is my message.

Stop spinning, allow Him to hold, and dance slow.

    mmmm these words fall like cleansing snow to my heart. “His holes make us whole” yes. When we slow to let Him. Thank you for your words, and your taking the time to slow. –An FMF neighbor.
