5 Minute Friday – Getting back in the Rhythm


Wow.  I took off one week of blogging and it’s turned into weeks of just writing when I can or want to.

It’s been hard to re-find my rhythm in this blogging world.  And in my writing.

I feel as though I’ve lost my way in the dark.

I’m stumbling around to feel my way to the light switch, but I can’t seem to find it.

I keep tripping over things, stumbling along the way.

I get to the switch finally and it doesn’t work.

The light has gone out.

That’s how I feel with my life online right now.

I know in my heart that God is working on me- within my own heart and soul.

He’s working on me and my job as a mother and wife.

Those things come first and I’m failing miserable at them some days.

So I must put them first.  That’s how I’m getting my rhythm back right now.  I’m following the beat of my heart.

And it’s telling me that family comes first.  Then my writing will follow.

I’m starting to find my fingers again.

Almost as if I’m just learning to write or even type.  They are starting to feel alive again.

So I will continue to listen to God and pray the words continue to flow from my hands and heart.

  1. I’m in a rut as far as writing goes too. Oh to get out of it. I think the only way out is to write….

  3. Dear Leigh
    This is so true! When our loved ones are cared for and happy, there is a freedom in our hearts that spills over into our writing. So, as my sons would say, just chill!
    Much love XX

  4. Beautifully said. Family first.

  5. I couldn’t agree more, Leigh! I feel the same and have struggled to find my rhythm again. YET, I’m learning (again) to let go and just trust…embracing the roles and responsibilities that are HERE and NOW and trusting God for the rest, remembering that HIS timing, HIS words are right. xoxo, Friend!

  6. I went through this a couple of years ago… I even wrote a post about it when I came back (it took me 2 years) but it’s good to be attuned with what God is calling you to do and be. :) The online world will always be here, your family needs you more. :)
