Five Minute Friday – Park

Joining with Kate at Heading Home

For five minutes of free writing.
“This is meant to be a free write, which means:
no editing, no over-thinking,
no worrying about perfect grammar or punctuation.
Just write.”

This week’s prompt – Park

Put it into Park!








At the end of the long day
sitting in the car in the driveway
Put the car into park.
turn of the key.
Sit in the silence for a moment
before the next phase of the day.
You can fill in the blanks.

but let’s pause in that wee quiet time
before we open the door
and try to carry all the bags at once.

Be in the present
Be in His presence
Be still
Whisper Thanks
Ask for Grace
Trust in His Love.

Parking just might be the very best time of the day.


Psalm 46:10-11
Let be and be still, and know
(recognize and understand)
that I am God.
I will be exalted among the nations!
I will be exalted in the earth!
The Lord of hosts is with us;
the God of Jacob is our Refuge
(our High Tower and Stronghold).
[pause, and calmly think of that]!

Amplified Bible
