Along Came Heartburn

Join me in the Five Minute Friday Challenge hosted by Lisa-Jo Baker. Participants write for 5 minutes with no editing, no over thinking, and no backtracking. This week’s word is: Quiet.

 Five Minute Friday


Be still. Be quiet. Oh I have needed to do that so much lately. The desire has certainly been there but somehow life gets in the way and well…you know.

And then along came this week. Exhausted and dizzy. Did I mention exhausted and dizzy? Energy. What’s that? Try to do a simple task? Dizzy.

I did what I could, which wasn't much and just sat and thought the rest of it. Not sure last night how the house was going to get clean before my step-son arrived today, prayers were sent upwards.

Along came heartburn. And not just any old mild version of it. Noooo we couldn't do that! It had to be the full on don’t-move-or-you’ll-get-massive-pain version. Too painful to do much talking even.

This isn't what I asked for!!! It’s what I needed. No not the exhaustion or dizziness or heartburn. But quiet.

Quiet. Time to think. To re-evaluate. Time to rest. Time to be still and know that ‘I am’ God.


Now, your turn…


  1. Isn't it great how God always knows what we need, even when we don't? I'm your neighbor @ Lisa Jo's. Have a blessed and restful weekend!

    1. Yes - whether we want to know about it or not! blessings to you :o)

  2. Heartburn and lack of peace and quiet go hand in hand, don't they?

    1. Sure do! Thanks for visiting, blessings :o)

  3. Hi Lizzy
    Oh, that is soooo sore! Hope you did take some time to be quiet!

    1. Didn't have much choice - so quiet it was. My youngest was an angel and 'looked after' me till hubby got home. We had some sweet time doing origami on the bed :o) Thanks for visiting - blessings to you.

  4. Ick! Sorry you are having all of that at once. I can relate to the tired and the dizzy and I hate it. I hate dizzy most. I do know what you mean though- sometimes it's like we are forced to rest whether we like it or not. It is so annoying, yet sometimes we do need it. Hard to find the inspiration in heartburn though! haha. (I would say you did a pretty good job though)

    1. Thanks - I was hoping all day (I don't get the word cue till mid afternoon) that it would be something about rest. Strangely on my mind...


Thanks for commenting - I love to hear what you're thinking!
