Praying and Living with Joy (@5MFF)



Happy Beautiful Sunday Morning! On Sunday’s during October, and always, actually, we shift our eyes toward the Holy.

How are you liking the Planning with  Purpose series? Is there anything you want me to cover that I have not yet? Please let me know, and I will do my best to address it!

Today I am at 5 Minutes for Faith sharing how you can  plan for  JOY. I’ll start you here, and would you join me there?



I sat with journal open, seeking to pray but finding that the words were not forthcoming. Praying with my pen has always helped me focus my prayers, clarifying my thoughts and words. But on this morning, I could only sit, quietly staring out the window at the Red Maples in all of their splendor. My thoughts were focused, and on God’s beauty- the wonder of it all. I felt swept up to a heavenly seat, with my Father by my side, but I had no words. I was caught up in the beauty of the morning’s quiet, familiar offerings- transfixed in time. Is this not also prayer? Is this not also worship?

Does He who knows the hairs on my head know not my heart in this moment, where and what it is fixed on?

  1. Sometimes, even for wordlovers like you and me, Dawn, there are no words. I too have felt hushed before the grandeur of God in His autumn splendor. I thnk He understands and gives us the ability to worship inwardly.
    love you, and so wish you could have come to my cabin! It WILL happen!
