Wow, am I productive today, or what?
It's been a day of cleaning and hosting here at The Home Front, and while I feel as if I didn't get as much done as I would have liked, I have spent some time writing. My instructor would be so proud!
it's time for Five Minute Friday.
So get ready to give your best 5 minutes of unediting, unqualified word-weaving to this prompt:
Then link up your post with Lisa-Jo at The Gypsy Mama
hop around to give some other brave souls some encouraging feedback.
Here we go.
I always thought that when I got older
I’d feel less like a child—
now that I’m 33 (just a couple weeks
ago) I realize that I’ll always feel
like a child, always searching, always
uncertain, always doubting the truth
that You give me, like when You say
that You love me and I’m beautiful
and forgiven and free, but I hide
my head by tucking it down
against my shoulder, blushing,
protesting without speech, but with
the broken-beaten-down bend
to my neck and the helpless shrug
of the shoulders that I’m helpless to stop
even though I know that I’m not
the wise one, I don’t know all,
but I know that You are, and You do,
so I’ll try to spend this year and every one
to come learning to hear You and trust
