This is where I try to paint a picture.
In five minutes flat.
Where I show you what my heart feels
when given a single word prompt from Lisa-Jo.
No backtracking. No editing.
It’s just me.
Trying my hand at using brushstrokes with the keys.
This week’s word prompt is:
Who knows how many times we’ve had this discussion. How many times I’ve tried to explain volume, tone, politeness to my toddler. Words flow out of my mouth on auto pilot until he manages to find my mute button with:
“But, mom, sometimes I just get so excited I have to share it loud!
I can’t help it if I’m not outside then!”
He’s got me. I don’t want to be a joy-crusher. I don’t want him to stop sharing his excitement with me. Even when he can’t control his decibels yet. Okay. New plan. For now, we’ll just work on how close he is to my ear…
Lord, I hear You. I will join my boy in proclaiming loud and proud. Today I will let my excitement bubble over till it bursts. For what You did for me? That’s worth getting all riled up over.
Guess what! You’ll never guess what Jesus has done for me!
Do you know? Have you heard?
He has risen! Just as He said He would!
And I just have to tell you what He means to me!
I want to show you how much He loves me!
And did you know He loves you, too?!?
EEK! He loves us both!!!
He picked the both of us!
Oh how I want my life to look like that, Lord. Father, help me to be loud and proud. For You.
