Five Minute Friday has arrived, yet again! Hopefully you get the jist by now. Any blogger writes for 5 minutes-- unedited, free, raw-- on whichever concept that Lisa-Jo Baker (founder of Five Minute Friday) thinks of! The word is: "Rhythm"... GO!
I spent the bulk of my elementary years growing up by the ocean in #NewportOregon. The rhythm of the ocean calms me. How I wish I could be back there, even if for a few days, just to sit on the beach alone. To clear my mind, to watch the seagulls eat my McDonalds french fries (LOL), to drive to all of the old places that I remember being at, and so many more things.

For now, I am continuing on with the rhythm of my life. Day in and day out, struggling to get up, go to work, come home, try to have some alone-time, figure out what is for dinner, do some chores and go to bed. Same thing, over and over again. Routine is nice sometimes, for such a personality as mine; but I feel like my spirit wants more. It needs to roam and be free to do the things that it enjoys. There is freedom in Christ. I think we, as Christians, forget to do the good things that make us happy. We are trapped in routine. There are things that can enrich our souls here on earth to help Christ's beauty shine from the inside, out. Rhythm and routine are good, but we need to let our spirits step out of the 'box' so that inspiration can take place.
