This week’s writing prompt is: BREATHE




Setting my timer for five minutes, and . . . go. 


I’m still trying to figure out how my family and I went from a period of time earlier this year when all events were deleted from the calendar, the gas in the car didn’t get used, I read multiple books a month, and had time to cook elaborate meals to a mad frenzy of activity, driving for hours each week, working from parking lots, barely reading at all, and having to batch cook on weekends so we’ll have meals to eat at home during the week.

How did it happen so fast?

Even this week, I’ve had to do mental gymnastics to figure out who needed to be where when, and what we had to have packed and ready in the car before we left home for hours at a time.

Every once in a while I have to step outside, look up at the sky, and take a deep breath through my nostrils, an exaggerated inhale to reset my mind, body, and soul. To remind myself that the God who made the heavens and the earth is still in control, and I am still not. To pause and acknowledge His presence, His goodness, His faithfulness in the midst of the self-inflicted busyness. And to be grateful.

He is still on the throne, He still puts breath in our lungs, and He is still God.

Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. (Psalm 150:6)
