Practicing with an ND Filter in the midday harsh sun
A distant alternate to 2020 52Frames’ Leading Lines theme
Five Minute Fridays is back after a two-week hiatus. I’m glad of that because trying to come up with something on my own is hard! Having a word prompt allows me to ponder on it for a time if I can.
When I sit down to write, I just let the words flow through my fingers. And, oftentimes, what’s written seemingly has nothing to do with the prompt itself. But, in my heart and mind, the word prompt guided me and my words. What’s written is what it is.
For the longest time, I felt like I was stuck in mud going nowhere. But, for the first time in what seems like eons, I feel like I’m moving. Where? I have no idea.
I know there is only one way to go and that’s forward. I have no desire to return to where I was. I’m glad I’m not at a fork on a path needing to decide which way I should go. And honestly, at this moment, I don’t care to make critical decisions.
I’m trusting in and leaning on my God and doing what I’ve been doing all along — writing and photography. I’ve also gone into my sewing room along with planning out meals (with Dan’s1 help) and trying out a new recipe once a week.
I walked out of my room one day after messing around with my leaning tower of fabrics and for the first time in a long time, I realized I was happy/content.
I will do what I can when I can. I am forcing myself to calm my anxiety brain when things do not go as planned. I’d tell myself “it’s not the end of the world — Bullet it2 for tomorrow”.
- Dan is my husband
- Bullet Journal — been doing this for what seems like ages along with personal stuff. One source for everything.
No matter what the world is doing [going insane?] or what my mental state is, in spite of the “sand” eroding around me, Jesus keeps me afloat and on solid ground.

~ A thought of mine that I wrote down in my journal on January 9, 2020, after reading a devotional. “Sand” == family ties, marriage, life, etc., and etc.
