Five-Minute Friday: Tired

I have been MIA when it comes to blogging and am glad to get back to it today.  Thanks to Lisa-Jo at The Gypsy Mama for putting that prompt out there every Friday!

    1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking. 2. Link back here and invite others to join in. 3. Most importantly: leave a comment for the person who linked up before you – encouraging them in their writing!



Wow, so much in one little word.  Tired.

A mother of pre-schoolers constant companion.

A bad night's sleep.

Not knowing what's coming after the next 7 months.

Looking around at a messy house.


Children making the long trek to school, in the heat, dust, fumes of vehicles.

Parents looking for work, any work, to eke out an existence for their families.

A woman washing clothes with the modern convenience of a river.
A grandmother awaiting the sentencing of her son for over a year.

A lady having chemotherapy and wondering if it will ever end.

A mother in the rehabilitation center wanting her body to work again.


Isaiah 40:30-31
30Even youths shall faint and be weary,
   and young men shall fall exhausted;
31but they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength;
   they shall mount up with wings like eagles;
they shall run and not be weary;
   they shall walk and not faint.
Galatians 6:9
And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. 

Thessalonians 3:13
As for you, brothers, do not grow weary in doing good.
