I learned about this from someone in my writer's group. Each Friday there is a key word to write about.
Here are the rules:

Around here we write for five minutes flat on Fridays.

We write because we want to, not because we have to. We write for fun, for joy, for discovery.

On Fridays we just write without worrying if it’s just right or not. Won’t you join us?


“You don’t have to figure everything out today. You just have to keep moving.” I said the words aloud as I busily cleaned my kitchen one morning. Immediately a feeling of profound love and peace washed over me, consumed me. I knew that my words were true and that my Savior loved me and appreciated any effort I could give.

I have always wanted to know that I am doing the right thing and giving my best. “What is my purpose?” I’ve wondered. “I’m I using this precious gift of life to the fullest?” I now understand that we must live life to find our lives. We must walk to find our path. Much of what we experience will be trial and error. We’re not always going to do it just right. We can’t. But I trust, oh how I trust, that If I show up for the job every day, keep moving and give my best—even if my very best is no more than the widow’s mite sometimes—the Lord will take my offering and add unto it so much more. More than my meek little heart could ever, ever imagine.

God always speaks to me while I'm cleaning the kitchen and washing the dishes!

Thanks for your words today. Glad I stopped by.
