Today I am joining Lisa-Jo and a beautiful community of writers for the 5 Minute Friday where we are given a word prompt and write for just 5 minutes simply for the joy of writing. No editing or backtracking necessary. No need to be perfect. This is where I get to write, letting it all go, allowing the words tucked away deep inside my heart to find their voice.
I wish I could sit down and visit with you, my friend. I’d smile and welcome you in as I hug your neck. We’d talk about our families, our children, our jobs. We’d lean in close to hear one another’s hearts as we share of hopes, dreams and passions still awaiting to blossom. We’d have coffee, and tea, and chocolate. Oh, there would be so much chocolate. We would laugh and cry and hold one another’s hands as we lift each other before the throne of grace.
I am grateful for you, even though most likely we have not met. It’s hard sometimes, with me here and you there. Will I ever really get to know you? Can I truly understand the depth of your heart? What makes your heart beat fast? I want to look into your eyes as I tell you how much I have come to love and appreciate you. I want to see His light shining through you, because so many times it was His light shining through you that has helped me become who I am today. You believed in me, prayed for me and encouraged me to chase my dreams.
I want to thank you for stopping by each day for a visit on your journey. I pray that we will have the chance this side of heaven to sit and visit with one another, sharing our lives and chasing our dreams. We are better together.
