Five Minute Friday: Wonder.

It's time for another Five Minute Friday!
<This is the last FMF of 2012!>

Here are the rules.

If you have a blog or MS Word--you should so do it.

It's Five Minutes of pure blog adrenaline.

Five minutes of writing on one topic. Period. No editing. No nothing.
Ready? Set.



Do you wonder if the lessons you pour into your kids will stick?
Do you wonder if your marriage is healthy?
Do you wonder if the dryer is finished?
Do you wonder if the milk is nearly gone?
Do you wonder if God is pleased with you?
Do you wonder what issues your one-day adult children will have to deal with?
Do you wonder what if? Ever?
Do you wonder if you are doing it right?
Do you wonder if these pants are too tight?
Do you wonder if half the stuff that takes up space in your brain even matters?
Do you wonder if what you're doing is eternally significant? Or even significant today?

I wonder.

And, some will and some won't.
You probably know in your gut if it is or isn't.
It will be soon.
It will be soon.
He is so very pleased.
They are likely to have a few.
It won't do a bit of good.
Sometimes, just doing it at all is doing it right.
You are beautiful.
Most of it doesn't.
It's all significant.



  1. Hello there! I came across via the linkie from Lisa-Jo's blog. I love what you wrote here. And I feel it really speaks to me today! Particularly, "Sometimes, just doing it at all is doing it right." I spent lots of our prayer meeting that I went to tonight, feeling really cross with myself that I had been such a grump about going, particularly because I hadn't realised it was happening and felt a bit, 'on the hoof' and I worried that I was there with the wrong attitude and mind-set. But as you say.... So much time wondering and worrying! Lovely post! Lovely to meet you! x

    1. Thanks for reading!
      I really am convinced we (women) are harder on ourselves than any one else. :)

  2. Just popped in from Lisa-Jo's place. First thing I did was read your profile...I like you already! Especially since your loves includes Diet Coke and that you're a Floridian calling Houston home. Because that's me! I've now spent more of my life in Texas than Florida, but I still have the occasional yearning for the sunshine state.

    On to your post: I love this. Nodding my head as I go down the first list. Nodding my head as I go down the second. Laughing to my self at "They are likely to have a few", because I'm convinced my kids will have stories to tell. I just hope their stories include the phrase "she did her best." :) Anyway, thanks for the encouragement today.

    1. I KNOW my kids will have some stories! For sure!
      We've only been in Houston for a few months...we like it here, but I'm definitely missing Florida.

      Thanks for reading!!
