Friends, I’m needing to hit a one-post-pause on my Back-to-the-Basics Series.
Just so I can write with my hair down.
Unedited. Unscripted. In 400 words or less.
I’ve missed it too much.
So I will join my blogging friends over at Lisa-Jo’s.
We’ll throw caution to the wind and write unabashedly
for five minutes time.
Without worrying if it’s right or not.
Today’s word prompt is:
Your tiny fingers curl over mine like a pro. It’s only day one and you’ve already mastered a grip on my heart. My free hand sweeps lightly the wisps by your brow and I find myself gasping for reality.
How am I going to show you the hidden secrets of this world? How will I keep from exposing you to the hurt around every bend? How will I share the lessons I learned hard in hopes you will find your footing firm when you arrive?
You’re smiling now as you sleep in the bliss of fullness. I capture the frame and tattoo it on my soul. For that is what I want. That is what life should look like when you are clinging to the arm of a Savior.
So I will strive to live my life in front of you. Open wide to what comes my way. I’ll throw the need to control in the wind as I’m sure fear won’t know what else to do but follow. I’ll jump into the adventure of discovery. I’ll show you grace that’s found while bending low. And I’ll smile in the assurance of joy overflowing.
You breathe in deep like you’re taking life in. Squeezing my heart with your melodic exhale. And I can’t help but whisper softly
“Oh, yes. Believe me, son. It’s worth it.”
How about you? How do you handle risk? I’d love to hear.
Thanks for sharing your time with me.
