It's Time to Write

It’s time to write…
but the house groans with ‘fix me’ sighs
and inspiration wanes…

It’s time to write
but reality keeps waving
a little white flag in my face...

It’s time to write
but children call from far and near
and birthing pains continue into the night...

It’s time to write
and I thank God for his
ever present gift of words...

He’s already written everything down.

  1. Pat, isn't it true that there is always something keeping us from writing I love the gratitude in the end. :)

  2. I love this Pat. You are writing with your life just now. The words and the time will come.
    Blessings to you friend.

  3. Man, do I recognize this right now. Still muddling through vacation/travel fatigue, looking at pile after pile of stuff that needs doing, had a major meltdown with my mom today - and the words just are not there. Nor the energy. Waiting on God's time for the well to open again. Thanks for this.
