FiveMinuteFriday meets 31 days Of Christmas Planning IN REAL LIFE


This post was written at an InRealLife Party Five Minute Friday party at the Allume Conference. There was a room full of women who all wrote for five minutes together and then lots got up and read their posts in an open mic setting. It was seriously one of the coolest things I've ever been a part of.

The word this week: Voice

Lift up your voice, all ye saints!

It's Christmas time! Don't be quiet. 

You are a child of the King and the King has come and will come again!

Rejoice!

Sing songs of quiet.

Songs of Joy.

Blare the trumpets. Strum the harp.

Whatever it is, Lift UP your voice!

How will I use my voice this Christmas? To grumble at the traffic or crowds. 

Or to be a light. To be a voice that will proclaim a way in the wilderness. 

Rejoice.

Lift up your voice.

How fun that you got to write this with a room full of women doing the same! That makes this even more special. :) And a Christmas post?? I love it. Thanks for sharing! I'm going to have to look at more of your Christmas planning posts. (It's my favorite season!)

Thanks for stopping by my page for FMF. The strength finders survey/results were very interesting and my top 5 were very much in line with what I'm good at AND what I enjoy doing. If it's on your night stand, I'd say go for it.

So true. I find it a struggle each year to remind myself of the true meaning of the season without being swept away with the extra nonsense. It's so awesome you got to partake in FMF in person. I'm sorry I had to miss, it sounds wonderful.
Hope you have an amazing weekend with wonderful women.
