Five Minute Friday: Still

1. Write for 5 minutes flat for pure unedited love of the written word on the prompt, “Still.”
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. Get a little crazy with encouragement in the comments of the five minuter who linked up before you.

This week's prompt:


I wish I could be still sometimes. It seems like my mind is always racing, always thinking, and where my mind goes, my body is sure to follow.

Sitting still, although widely considered to be a Good Thing, especially in school, is near impossible for me. When I attempt to sit still, I end up falling asleep.

However, I know that somewhere, probably deeeeep inside me, there is a well of stillness that I can draw on as needed. I know that is the spark that makes me, well, ME.

I know that it may be drowned out by everyday life, but that on occasion, mostly when I need it the most, if I take time to quiet all but the low rumblings, I can feel the calm, the love, the hope, the joy that is God.
