Happy Friday morning my friends…We are joining Lisa-Jo for her 5 minute friday challenge.
Got five minutes? Here’s a great way to spend them.

3. Pony up the comment
love for the five minuter who linked up before you.
Share your best, unedited 5 minutes …
I forget sometimes…don’t you. My thoughts float away from me more frequently these days it seems.
Sometimes I think it may be the medications from the Heart Event almost a year ago, next week. Sometimes I think…the hormones are changing…it’s that season.
Sometimes it worries me…I forget what day in June my anniversary is. My husband finds this amusing. I forget the what of why I walked in the room…
There is something…what…where…and then there is the HOW…
How does life become so stressed and so busy that the human memory wears thin to spilling? And, yet, it seems that what falls through the slats of this mind are the little things…
a dentist appointment with the hubby
the milk while shopping…I literally forget 3 to 4 things, important but little things, at the grocery, often!
Forgetting the I….
If only I could forget what I think is important…and focus on what it is that is important to God…
a friend posted this yesterday on their FB status:
Is what’s important to you important to God? This is the benchmark for every believer to live by. ~Unknown Author
What I’m forgetting is the little things…forgetting because my focus is on the importance of getting through a day…getting where the I of Me wants to be, rather than living in the NOW of the day God has provided.
Maybe if I thought, “well is the milk so important to what God would have me do today?”, and realize that if it was He would have made sure I got it, then I wouldn’t be so stressed unto…
Now for a 1 minute cheat…there is a Forgetting that is biblical…and oddly it helps me reconcile putting aside all of the things I didn’t remember to do today…
Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. ~ Philippians 3:13-14
I practice daily to accomplish this type of forgetting. God’s rules on what to forget…
