Five Minute Friday: Because

Don't think you're on the right road just because it’s a well-beaten path. ~Author Unknown



Five Minute Friday prompt: BECAUSE

Foraging new paths in my mind.
Giving myself the opportunity to think about life events from other perspectives.
Making room for grace, forgiveness, mercy, peace and love.

Gratefully accepting much needed heart healing BECAUSE "well-beaten paths" are left behind in favor of taking a chance on an unknown road. 

New and different isn't always easy nor is it always hard.

It just... well, it just "is."

And, BECAUSE Jesus lives.... I can face tomorrow and these new roads with continued faith, hope and love.

  1. Wow, I am so thankful I linked up next to you at the Five Minute Friday, so that I could come here to read this post. Today, was my last day working at my church, after 9.5 years. I was laid off and am not heading down an unfamiliar path. Thank you for encouraging my heart in 5 minutes. P.S. - I am joining Kate's prompts for the 31 days this year. I look forward to following you along.

  5. Hey Doll, may God bless your beautiful heart 'cause this truly touched mine. I needed this today! (.....and probably tomorrow too...heeehehehee!)

    Have a great weekend sweetie! Mine is stuffed fuller than a tubby trucker at an all you can eat buffet! 'Just had to to it....couldn't hold it in...wouldn't be prudent.

    Give your precious Mama a big old squeeze for me. :o)
