Five Minute Friday: Enough
The Gypsy Mama shares this great idea to write every Friday for 5 minutes on a topic.
Want to take five minutes with me and just write without worrying if it’s just right or not.
I can never quite get enough of my favorite foods: mashed potatoes, homemade tacos, orange chicken and rice
I can never quite get enough of trying to find new foods to cook or restaurants to try
I can never quite get enough of some of my favorite shows: Chopped, Food network star, Amazing Race, etc, etc,
I can never quite get enough of being lazy on a summer morning, drinking coffee, and fixing a great little breakfast to enjoy out on the patio
How often though, do I seem to get enough of the things that really matter in life?
- God’s Word – sure there are some days that I don’t want to put down that Scripture or Bible Study that I am wrapped up in, but it is often tempting to say, “Okay, it’s been enough time…I’ve got to do other things
- Family – I love spending time with them, but how often would I rather be a recluse, looking over lesson plans or working on my college coursework, or ….have to work on that blog post, tweet, or new instagram upload. I know there are times I put aside the important times with family and replace them with things that are way less important
Lord, give me the ability to know what things I need to put down so that I can be filled with ENOUGH of the things that mean most in life. May I realize that there are some things I should never have enough of, the things I should desire MORE and MORE of each day…may I chose those with wisdom and discernment.
