It’s time for Five Minute Friday…but first: Registration for the FIRST EVER Five Minute Friday Retreat is OPEN! Get your tickets here! They are selling fast!
It’s time write freely with the #fmfparty gang, where we gather to write together on one word, letting the words flow without editing.
Today’s prompt is: Tomorrow.
There seems to be so much hope in this simple word. Tomorrow is a whole new day, brimming with possibilities. Uncharted, unknown, untainted.
And at the same time, it’s full of fear. Uncertainty. Blind.
It’s an unknown entity, and each day we walk blindly into a new tomorrow, facing a new day. Whether with hope or trepidation, one day turns into another, and time marches on. As the days pass on, I begin to wonder.
Am I facing my tomorrows intentionally? Or am I frittering them away?
Because someday, there will be no tomorrow. It could be three weeks from now, or seventy years from now. Living like there’s no tomorrow isn’t practical everyday, but living with a heart wide open to welcome tomorrow is.
God guides what comes, and though I’ve no clue what that is, I need not fear. Neither do you, friends.
Some of your tomorrows will be filled with anguish and mourning, leaving you unwilling to face another. And some will fill you with such joy and gratitude that you will think your heart is bursting.
But no matter what, never discount the blessing of another tomorrow. Never take it for granted. Never forget that no matter what tomorrow holds, you can face it with hope.

Also…exciting news! We’ve gotten a sponsor for the #fmfretreat! ViBella Jewelry will be sponsoring part of the retreat, and will be doing a fun presentation/activity. This company is AMAZING! It uses recycled material to make BEAUTIFUL jewelry, which support local artisans in Haiti and Mexico. We are thrilled to work with them during the retreat, and hear more about the wonderful things they do. Check out more of their story here!
