Write 31 Days is over. It’s time to get back to my regular pattern (or lack thereof) of posting. First up, Five Minute Fridays, where we all join up with Kate to get a one word prompt, then we write for five minutes, unedited. Then you go back and read the person (or two or three) ahead of you and comment on their post.
Today’s word is Journey.
The journey has been long. It has been 11 years in the making. (I was wrong Kate. I’ve been blogging for 11 years, not 10.)
I’ve written about my mom’s health issues, my dad’s health issues, about all the constant moving, about homeschooling and children. I’ve written about weight loss and depression and moving forward. I’ve given my testimony when I didn’t think I had one to give. I’ve written about life and death and pausing and the Word of God. I’ve written about the CIA and the Renaissance Festival. I’ve written about gratitude and simply writing to write. I’ve written about vacations and staying home. About faith and family.
I’ve written about the FMF retreat. I’ve taken so many photos, that I sometimes wonder if I will ever run out of room.
But the journey has led me to this conclusion.
I am a writer. I have words that need to be heard and words that need to be given. My words are a part of who I am. If I give you my words, I give you a piece of myself. I have tried hard to show you who I am online just like I would in person.
I am a writer. And I intend to use the words God gave me for His glory.
