Waking Up Full

Why, Hello Friday!

Each Friday, Lisa-Jo host a blog link up called 5 minute Fridays.

The Rules:

  1. Write for 5 minutes only!
  2. No editing, let the words flow!
  3. Link up with Lisa-Jo and comment on another 5 minute blog post!

Easy? Why yes, indeed!

This week’s topic is: FULL

Start:

 

I would love to say that my mornings begin with a soft caress of yellow sunshine, coffee brewing, and my hair neatly in place. But they never do. Today, I woke up dogs barking to be let outside, my stomach aching, and my thoughts rushing to what I needed to do today. I was full.

 

Each morning, each new sunrise, I awake and you awake full. We are full of new day, new moments to breathe, to stumble, to live. But most of us only wake up empty to our own fullness. We see the chores and tasks as impeding our opportunities to refill, to recharge our fullness. Perhaps, we mistakenly think that unless we have a day at the spa, the beach, a coffee date with a friend that we are merely running on a half full tank.

 

Let me remind you and myself—we awake full of this new day. Every day, every minute, we are alive is full. We choose our we fill those minutes, and those full moments have been in the mind of the One who created them for us. How shall we see how our fullness today? In the pages of a novel full of old friends, in the full coffee mug, in the full dog food bowl, in the full hearts of those who love us.

 

Stop.

  1. Hi! I’m following the rules at The Gypsy Mama and visiting the person who linked up before me. :) Each new day is full of possibilities. God’s mercies are new every morning, so we can wake up with hearts full of His amazing love for us.
    Many blessings!

  2. I’m just a loyal reading friend and yeah, I did the 5 minute Friday. I’m going to challenge myself to do it every Friday, but like you I woke up almost too full to write coherently. I think I’ll go for a full cup of coffee now.

  3. Loved this: But most of us only wake up empty to our own fullness. We see the chores and tasks as impeding our opportunities to refill, to recharge our fullness.

    So true! May we be filled with the SIMPLE and know that we can be FULL any day…
