Five Minutes Whole


1. Write for 5 minutes flat with no editing, tweaking or self critiquing. (I still struggle with this.)

2. Link back to?the Gypsy Mama and invite others to join in. ?(The button code can be found in the side bar on her site.)

3.?Go and tell the person who linked up before you what their words meant to you.

Today?s prompt is Whole.


Five Minutes WholeStaring out my library window at the dull grey morning I’m not sure where or what to write about for whole. ?Am I whole? ?Do I feel whole? ?What is whole? ?There’s the whole world that seems a little crazy with people, but then again there’s a whole world that goes on anyway. ?I haven’t been feeling well. ?It’s more an emotional illness, but nothing so tangible that I can give a name. ?I function, I smile, laugh, love, but a mild unease has been clinging to me just under the surface. ?I’ve been thinking a lot about all the changes. ?My college, my friends, my understanding of their importance. ?Mostly my friends. ?I hope for wholeness for them. ?I think wholeness could be a peaceful, confident sort of thing. ?I’d love to feel whole inside my skin…

    Hello Veronica

    Thanks for visiting my blog.. thought I’d pop over and visit you back. That picture is just awesome! Looks like a heart dripping blood… reminds me of Jesus’ Sacred Heart. I’m sorry you’re feeling a little blue.. we all have those moments. Praying you can feel joy in Him today. Have a blessed and happy weekend!

    Maybe it is something in the day today, as I felt that same unsettled-ness. I prayed, I wrote extensively in my journal.

    But still. There’s something.

    Perhaps it is changes that are here, or changes that are coming, or the great unknown changes that are around the corner.

    Keep the faith and lean in close to Him for support and His direction.

    Visiting from 5 Min Friday- I understand the feeling you so clearly wrote about today, I’ve been there so many times. Wholeness is a peaceful feeling- and you can know it. Praying you will find wholeness in our Lord.
