At Which Point God Shows Up For Coffee {Connect}

Well Friends, as you know Friday is the day I write for five minutes for 5 Minute Friday over at Lisa-Jo’s place and I want to invite you there if you have not already ventured on over! I love these prompts and even the five minute limit. Lord knows, I need limits! Well before I start I want to just link last weeks post because this week our writing prompt is Connect, and my friends there is a divine connection related to my last 5 minute Friday post (in case you have the urge to know more, or want a retake: it’s HERE).
I am sitting across the table ordering coffee.
The third “connection” with possibility.
Listening for the catch. Waiting for the confirmation.
Leery, yet hopeful.
He looks back at me, this partner of the person I first interviewed with last week.
I am pleased with the manners, communication and consideration displayed.
But, hesitant.
The breakfast meeting goes long.
He orders toast, I can’t even think of food.
I just want confirmation.
Then the question. Availability.
Only not available one day when I volunteer at my daughter’s school.
He leans in.
Do you mind if I ask what you do there?
I sheepishly (shame on me) confess
Meet with a group of Moms and lead prayer.
At which point God reveals our true connect.
In Him.
To our amazement and joy.
Deal sealed.

Five Minute Friday

Random Journal Day Link Up/Blog Hop #20

Welcome to Random Journal Day! 

Hello, Fellow Journal Keepers, Artists, Writers and Friends!

Well today I have a special treat!
I wanted to give you some inspiration and let you know of a friend in our RJD community
who also has a Journal Link Up.

If you have not had a chance to visit Marcia, she is an amazing mixed media artist and MORE
who oozes with creative passion and I so enjoy her “Dabblings”.
Marcia says, “I live an ARTFUL life, trying to be creative every day.  Finger painting with my toddler, art journaling during naps, snapping photos on our excursions and teaching art in my day-to-day job allows me to stay in touch with my expressive side constantly.”

Marcia Beckett

Although my focus is writing, when it comes to my journals, sometimes they look like scrapbooks or doodle pads. I don’t know about you but I really enjoy the Artists who link up their Art Journal Pages, because they so inspire me with their unique creative portion. I encourage you writers to check out the link even though you don’t consider yourself “artistic” in like manner. I believe we rub elbows together and magically enlarge one another’s vision just in the sharing, viewing and appreciating.

Check out her eye candy pages!

I just love this one! 

Hope this gets your creative juices flowing!
Make sure and visit and send some 
Random Journal Day Love her way!

 REMEMBER to Link your post back to this URL directly
so others may find us and participate!
(just click on the title of this post and link that to your RDJ entry)
If you have a any questions contact us (Dawn and Susie) through e-mail:

Rules, Schmules…but here they are : 

1. Dig out one of your old journals, or a recent journal. 
Choose an entry, or a portion of an entry that you feel bold enough or at least comfortable to share. 
We prefer if you could include a picture of your journal if possible!

2. Write up your blog post, publish and link up here.
Link up the blog post you are sharing, NOT your general Blog address- so we can visit your entry. 
We don’t have a Badge for this Blog yet, but if you just link back to this in your post that will work (Random Journal Day Weekend Link Up) You can use Susie’s RDJ Photo if you like!

3. Kindly visit and comment on the person before 
you in the link up. 

I like the way Lisa Jo of Gypsy Mama puts it: 
“And then absolutely, no ifs, ands or buts about it, 
you need to visit the person who linked up before you 
& encourage them in their comments. 
That is, like, the rule. And the fun. And the heart of this community..”
You can visit more but we understand that everyone is busy.
 Please visit at least one other Random Journal Day Link Up as that just would make it nice for all.

We look forward to peeking in your journals!

*This Link will start on Friday and go through the week. 
Link up anytime before the next Friday (Thursday night when I get around to it)
