Everything vies for your attention: school, work, family, friends, responsibilities. But if you don't give yourself enough attention: rest, water, nourishment, exercise and down time you'll find yourself used up and overwhelmed. Remember to take time at the beginning of your day because others will quickly fill the rest of it up for you.
This is what I’m learning!
Test after test after test, challenge after challenge after challenge. No breaks no air just weight......breaking
Waiting for a lift....
Most of my life I’ve been waiting. Waiting like now for a lift, waiting for others, or waiting for something. Patiently I’d wait, always patiently. I’ve gotten so accustomed to it I’m not sure if it’s a good thing or bad thing. In life I’m not in a rush, but shouldn’t something’s be hurried. Like my money, I’d like for that to be hurried. But no I wait. They’re late as usual so I read or let my thoughts wonder. Actually this time waiting allows me to clear my head. Drifting from thought to thought and dream to dream. Sometimes I even chuckle at the little sayings I come up with for imaginary conversations I’ll never have. Some might find me weird but I don’t stir the p...
I barely missed hitting him as he fell into the crosswalk looking backwards. I put my flashers on and got out. He grunted hitting the lights, signaling to turn them off. Are you ok? He nodded his head up and down but winced loudly as he rose up. He held me tightly as I helped him into the car. Once in he hit the locks and pointed forward whimpering. That’s when I saw it coming.
No rest for the weary, no sleep for the tired. The vivid dreams I grasp at are gone before I can realize them.
Unpolished dented and fraying. Pushed into a corner collecting dust. Waiting for someone to remember it’s value.
I missed the bus today....
I missed the bus today. I could say it was an accident but I don’t believe in such things. I know that all things are purposed. So I wonder what this trek will bring. As I stand here waiting for the next bus I have twenty minutes to wait. As I pull out my book to read an elderly lady joins me. We say hello and as I start to dive in, she starts talking. She tells me about her grandkids and how she’s on her way to go visit one now who’s sick. I tell her I’m sorry to hear that but I’ll keep her in prayer. She says thank you and as we finish up our conversation the bus arrives. She takes the last seat upfront as I continue to the middle.
That’s my five minutes for th...
Today is going well. I woke up on a good note. Got some writing in before I even got out of bed, had a nice cup of Strawberry and Apple tea, chatted via text with my bro, read my daily devotional and then proceeded to get ready for work. I have a spring in my step today. Thanks be to God for thisTruly Blessed day!
She was like a viper stabbing me with its venom, deeply penetrating my subconsciousness. No compassion. Ready to immobilize and devour me with her words. Self-righteousness swelling like a dam ready to burst. Not knowing the brittleness of her own fangs would eventually lead to her death.
