Five Minute Friday…almost on Saturday

“On Fridays around these parts we have a little tradition. We throw caution (editing, revising, and worrying) to the winds and just write. Without wondering if it’s just right or not.

For five minutes flat. You’re welcome to play along.

If I knew I could, I would….
If I knew I could, I would pick up the guitar that sits dusty in the little music nook I created in my room and teach myself to play.  I would play all the songs that I want to sing in worship, but am afraid of.
If I knew I could, I would start writing my next book. Throw caution to the wind and just start typing all the words and thoughts and reflections in my head like Henri Nouwen in Here and Now.  I would not worry about the time or the money or even about the consequences of sharing my heart, but only revel in the joy of releasing that heart to the world.
If I knew I could, I would stop worrying about life.  I turn away from the things of this world that make me anxious and live right here, right now, present and intentional.

  1. I think that your FMF is great! I would love to have some musical talent….when I sing it sounds like cats fighting…..when I would sing to my boys when they were small…they cried louder! 🙂

    Hope you have a great weekend!

  2. Love this one today. I too, have a guitar sitting dusty. I need to get it out more and just sing for the pure joy of lifting my heart into song. Thank you for sharing. And thank you for such a wonderful comment on my own five minute Friday.
