My Sweet #FMFParty Sisters

12 Oct

Today I am joining Lisa-Jo and friends for Five Minute Friday.
This is where we come together writing for 5 minutes without editing or overthinking.
I love this community.

Check out what everyone’s is sharing on the word RACE here.

Five Minute Friday

Each Thursday night I race to my computer to join this delightful crazy community of women. These sweet friends with open arms that make me laugh. Make me cry. Make me think. They encourage and empower me to write each week. It is them I think of as I hit publish. That deep breath getting a little less each time.
We chat about everything from popcorn to prayer requests and all things in between.

And oh the words they share in the span of five minutes. There is such beauty found there. I see Him through these incredible women every week.

I think of all those who say that community online isn’t possible and say emphatically…
 “You’ve never been to an #FMFParty!”

Tonight I am thankful for each and every one of you.

Every time I think of you, I give thanks to my God.
Philippians 1:3

    What a sweet tribute post, Wendy! I love the idea of you racing to your computer!!! I missed it last night- I have been so sick with this early pregnancy thing, but I too am thankful for the community that surrounds 5 minute Friday. Such a blessing!

    You have expressed exactly what I have felt in my heart today regarding the #FMFParty, Wendy! It is pure joy sharing unedited thoughts with such loving souls! And yes, I, too, have less reserve as I write my posts and I do publish them without a thought because I have found a very safe & loving, GOD-LIKE, place in this community. So grateful for this opportunity. This community. And you.
