I am not sure what Christmas show it is…I think it is Rudolph…someone help me please, but the song, “Just put one foot in front of the other…” came to mind when I saw this prompt.
But that is always easier said than done. Especially for me. For before I begin anything, I feel like I have to complete something else. When I sit down to write, even for five minutes, I look around and see that I really should clean up my room. When I pack for a trip, I decide that I need to clean the pantry first. It is if starting is not enough. There has to be some sort of final product that I can look back on in order to remind myself that there will be an end when I begin.
But now, I know that starting has to be enough. For in two weeks, Leah will begin her first year in high school.
I cannot finish anything to promise me that it will all “go well.”
All I can do is pray that she may finish well – that she remains strong in her walk with Jesus and that the things of the world do not distract her. And isn’t that the prayer for us all? – to begin each day by giving it right back to the One who gave it to us?
Just one foot in front of the other…
Here is the last Five Minute Friday that Lisa-Jo Baker is hosting. There is a one word prompt and five minutes to write. She has finished well and is passing off this leading of a beautiful community to Kate and if you have not joined in yet to read or write…Come join the fun!
