Grandparenting With Grace: Five Minute Friday Prompt Write

 Lisa-Jo Baker encourages,

“. . .on Fridays a group of people who love to throw caution to the wind and just write without worrying if it’s just right gather to share what five minutes buys them. Just five minutes.”  (See more at )
   Today’s prompt for Five Minute Friday is WRITE.

I’m a bit late for the Five Minute Friday rush, but here is my 5 minutes worth:

To write is a sacred experience; the sharing of one’s heart.  There is always uncertainty in how one will be accepted, if one will be understood. To write can bring pain, but to not write is indeed painful. Writing transcends the now. It carries one through, furthering this journey called life as it works out the kinks, smooths out one’s rough edges, and brings a calm amidst the rolling storms. Writing gives a voice when verbal communiqué cannot be risked. When one’s speech seems inadequate, when words become lodged mid-utterance- to write can be an egress to the soul. To write gives life to one’s life.


  1. "to not write is indeed painful." That is where I am right now and I know that God is convicting me to write more. Thanks for your words. (visiting from FMF)

  2. It's so true what you say here... I love your mention of "working out the kinks". Truly, I have found myself doing just that with the help of writing. Such great observations concerning writing. Thanks so much for your contribution to FMF.

  3. Sonja and Lisa thank you for taking time to stop by, I am so enjoying the FMF and reading the word masterpieces of other writers.
