Five Minute Friday: Loud

My Five Minute Friday is late…. Saturday will have to do.  The one word prompt: LOUD

no-o-o-o-o, why didn’t he turn his alarm off – this isn’t a work day..

oh man.. forgot to call in her prescription…

need to shop.. nothing for dinner… we’ll be gone all day…

do not stretch that way you’ll get another foot cramp…

I don’t want to get up… I hardly slept…

wonder how the road is over the pass… need to get down to mom and dad…

my pink shirt must be in the ironing…

The house is quiet.  My brain is not.  Like an out of control gym teacher with a loud speaker it reminds me of all the to-dos, the cares, the nonsense.

This is not how I want to start my day.  I want a do-over….

I’m up… eye drops in… coffee brewing… time with my books and journal.

It’s all good now.

  1. *Whew*!

    The road over the pass…yeah, that’s a common concern for us in the winter. My in-laws who come over the pass to see us frequently, often run into bad roads or cancel their trip altogether.



  2. My brain usually does that to me before I go to sleep at night, rather than in the morning. It’s not conducive to a good night’s sleep, or a good start to the day. I like your “do-over”.

    “You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you.” [Isaiah 26:3]


  3. I can totally relate – it can be a trick to keep my head from spinning out of control. And then, I am not a very nice person…As you said, to quiet the loud – trust, read, journal, and of course, coffee! I missed the word this week – too much craziness here at home. Hope to do it next week.


    1. It’s been so odd – – last few weeks I’ve awakened and my mind just starts racing. It used to be that happened at night and I work up fairly peaceful. Oh well 🙂 Sure hope your week is less crazy. I’ve missed seeing your posts and hope all was ok.
