FMF – Challenge


Today I am participating again in the Five Minute Friday posting.  Today’s word is Challenge.  What looks like a challenge to one person can be easy to another.  But that is what makes this world special.  We are all different.  Challenges can come in all forms – such as financial, athletic, educational, jobs, and more.  How you decide to approach a challenge can make all the difference in the world.

Some challenges might be avoided, while other things that challenge us are not avoidable – such as weather events.  But what matters is facing any challenge with grace, faith, and prayer.

Our family is currently dealing with the challenge of preparing for a cross-country move that will come at a yet-to-be-determined time.  However, we know it is definitely coming.  So our challenge is making sure our home is ready for the move when we get the final word.  This challenge is not good or bad unto itself.  Some of my teens and 20-somethings that all still live at home are viewing it as something exciting and to be enjoyed.  They also know where we move next will be for less than 3 years, so they can accept that.

So what type of challenge are you facing today?  I would love to hear from you.

#fmfparty – Build


So today I am doing something new here on the blog, I am participating in the #fmfparty , the Five Minute Friday writing prompt.  The prompt for today is build, and I definitely want to build up this blog and its following.  I want to build more content by writing more posts.  I want to share about my writing, our family and where I would like to get to in the future.

I would like to build connections with my readers.  After all, if I just wanted to write for me, I would choose to keep a personal journal rather than posting for everyone who cares to look at my posts to read.

I also want to build a writing habit.  For the last year, I have struggled with staying on top of posting here.  But I want to change that this year.  I want to build something that allows for me to connect with you, the reader.

I want to build my relationship with God and then share that with you through my posts.  But while I am building my blog, I want to build my relationships with my family.  So until next week, happy Friday.
