Rise and shine!

Time to get up and get going. You can plan your day down to the last detail but nothing will ever get done if you don't rise up.

Seems to me that life is much the same way.  You have to take that first step, and venture out into your destiny.  If you don't step out, nothing happens.

You could have all the potential in the world. You could have every resource available; but if that first step is missing, nothing will happen.  

What I've noticed is that person who seems to have everything against him will succeed because he will. Just. Not. Quit.

So rise up, sunshine, and start.  You might be amazed where you end up.


5 Minute Friday is now hosted by Kate at the blog "heading home." This is meant to be a free write, which means: no editing, no over-thinking, no worrying about perfect grammar or punctuation. 

Just write.

Also, the most important rule is that you visit the blog of the person who linked up before you and leave some encouragement.  That’s the most fun of all, and the heart of this community.

So true! God desires to use us and give us great days, but we have to rise up and meet Him half way. Stopped in from the Five Minute Friday!

ok I think God just used you to speak to me! All weekend I have been mulling over whether I should start writing a book about my childhood abuse I Christian counselor back in 1996 urged me to do so. But life, 2 daughters, a busy husband, career, ministry duties, etc etc has happened and i've put it on the back burner. Now....this past weekend I have sensed this urgency to write it. Not sure why. But this post kind of jumped out at rise! And get it started. hm.....
