Every Friday I push past my perfectionistic fear-of-failure and I post five minutes of unedited writing based on a prompt by Lisa-Jo of The Gypsy Mama. This week's words are "In Real Life...."
I confess when I see the "In Real Life..." a part of me feels like I'm being asked, "What do you want to be when you grow up?" Gulp. At this mid-point in my life (according to Psalm 90:10, once you reach 35 or 40), I feel like I am still trying to find my vocation in life. My Real Life.
But then on the other hand, I have a real husband (whom I adore), and an answer-to-prayer daughter (whom I also adore), and I have very real responsibilities. I also have a God who loves me despite truly knowing all of the very real parts of my soul.
I am also grateful for the friends that I connect with on a heart-to-heart level. We share part of our lives and hearts and that is real and that is a blessing!
My thoughts also jump to how when I connect with God then I am reminded that what I see and touch is not the only real life. There is an unseen life (Eph. 6:10-13).
P.S. Thanks for stopping by. My blog is not set up to "reply" to comments, but if you leave one with your website URL, I would love to come by and visit your site.
