HindsFeet_Week 6

This chapter could not have come at a better time. It truly spoke to my heart in this seasons of my life, and how, even though I do not understand His ways, He is always faithful to bring me through.

As Much-Afraid became aware that what lay ahead of her on the next phase of her journey was a desert, she immediately began to argue with her companions, Sorrow and Suffering, insisting that surely this was not the way she should go. After all, the Shepherd had called her to the High Places. Why would He want her to detour through the desert?

Five Minute Friday: Change

By Barbie   /     Aug 21, 2014  /     My 5 Minute Fridays  /     30 Comments

Today I am joining a beautiful community of writers for the Five Minute Friday where we are given a word prompt and write for just 5 minutes for the joy of writing.  No editing or backtracking necessary.  No need to be perfect.  This is where I get to write, letting it all go, allowing the words tucked away deep inside my heart to find their voice.

Change

change

It can be a familiar friend or an unwelcome visitor.

For the most part, I embrace change.

I’m a “fly-by-the-seat of my pants” girl, always willing to go where the wind takes me.
