Friday, July 29



the reason I struggle so much with Five Minute Friday, is because when my mind receives the prompt, my mind goes off in 10 different directions and I can't choose just one way to go.  The same happened with STILL.  so much so, that I decided to look up the word still... that just overwhelmed me more! :)

I really wanted to take it the direction of a Still ---ya know, the place they make alcohol, but I know NOTHING about that, because I have never had a drop (unless it was cooked in a meal!) ... I was just feeling a little rebellious.

so I thought about how I do NOT consider myself a writer, yet I STILL try to blog. (I do consider myself a crafter/artisan, and am STILL trying to make a go of it in an online card business, but it might just be a hobby)

I thought about how I never liked kids or baby sitting growing up, but God STILL gave me FOUR kids in 4 1/2 years.

I thought about how my kids drive me crazy and are so needy (they are kids afterall) and they drive me crazy most days and I sometimes yell and scream, but I STILL love them, and they STILL love me!

and how I have been extremely emotional, up and down a lot over that last few years, but my husband STILL loves me (and I am pretty high maintenance).

and how I STILL doubt God, even when He shows me time and time again that He is right here with me, and He STILL cares about the little things in life! Yesterday it was deer in my back field... I asked Him to bring me them after 2 pretty bad days!

and how I try to do Five Minute Friday at the worst times, and I always get interrupted and I have NO idea if I typed this in more than five minutes or less than five minutes, but I will STILL link up to Five Minute Friday.


now go over  to (In)Courage this week and read some Five Minute Friday posts that truly are inspiring!


  1. First of all, you are a writer. You just did it very nicely!
    Second of all, I would have loved it if you would have written about an alcohol STILL!
    And finally, I had 4 babies in 5 years and 2 months :) No twins and the last two were 10 months apart. Yay for babies! My oldest got married last month, we lost our third born when she was 19 mos.old, and my youngest had go to summer school this year...ahh, the good, the bad, and the ugly. ;)

  2. Oh, the thing about not liking kids or babysitting was so me, and God gave me twins! What a sense of humor he has... Your post made me chuckle.
    PS - your kiddos are adorable :)

  3. Looking at your family photos inspires me. I'm married for 2 years and am a new mom to a 6 month old baby girl, taking care of my hubby and baby is tiring but STILL, rewarding. :) Thanks for sharing this dear! God bless you and your family!


  4. I'm so thankful He still cares! I enjoyed your 5 minute post. And those kids of yours...adorable!
