Five Minute Friday - still

Every Friday we unite for five minutes to write on one word. Only five minutes, that's all we get, that's all we have. And then, right where we are, no edits or second-thoughts, we publish those words. This week, we write on still.

My mind,
my thoughts,
my anxiety...be still.

My anger,
my control,
my temper...be still.

My wanting to please,
my wanting to make it all better,
my wanting, period...be still.

Let me allow in the calm.
Let me follow the joy.
Let me see the beauty.
Let me recognize the peace.
Let me be still.

Let me cherish the time,
let me take in the memories,
let me always remember the little voices,
let me be still.

Let go of the tense,
find a way to relax the muscles,
find a way to sleep in peace.
Let me be still.

Let me remember how little time we all have,
let me remember the little,
let me remember our family love.
Let me be still.

Let me change what makes me fall apart,
let me find a way to happy,
let me teach them happy.
Let me be still.

Let them remember love,
let them remember affection,
let them remember what really matters.
Let me be still.

Let me hold on to us,
let me let go of stuff,
let me build childhood.
Let me be still.

Let me always love,
let me turn to kind,
let me shape good memories that build their success.
Let me be still.

    oh wow! I am so honored that I am the one that gets to comment on these beautiful words! Praise God for women like you who write from their soul! I love this! May I print it to keep in my journal?
    I love how you end each blessing/trial with be still. Isn't that all that is asked of us!
