It is that day of the week. The day of the week in which I not only dance and sing my Friday Song, but also the day of the week in which I join others in a fun writing exercise inspired by Lisa-Jo. A day when I am challenged to think about one word and write from my heart for a mere five minutes. Today's word is grasp. Here we go........
How I wish I could shelter you from any storm, safe in your mama's arms.....
protecting you from evils
protectimg you from disappointments
protecting you from hurts
protecting you from the really hard days.
Yet, if I don't loosen this grasp you will not grow,
your wings will not learn how to fly.
So I hide my heart's desire to hold on, I loosen my grasp and I lift my prayers up to my Heavenly Father.
A Father who can protect much better than I.
Ah, Lord God!
Behold, you have made the heavens and the earth
by your great power and outstretched arm.
There is nothing too hard for you.
The LORD your God is with you, he is mighty to save.
He will take great delight in you,
he will quiet you with his love,
he will rejoice over you with singing.
I will recount the steadfast love of the LORD,
the praises of the LORD,
according to all that the LORD has granted us,
and the great goodness to the house of Israel
that he has granted them according to his compassion,
according to the abundance of his steadfast love.
I cheated, but just a little. The Bible verses were added after my five minutes had expired. The rest, the words which I can claim as my own, were written during my allotted time. :)
Why don't you come a long to join the Five Minute Friday party?
