FRIEND in my Journey

Joyful Spring! We have waited so long in the North for the warmth of fresh sunshine, I have to sing some praises.
Today's prompt from the Gypsy Mama--word of comfort--FRIEND.

You have been with me, by my side for twenty-four years, over half of our lives! 
Not always literally by my side, but there in kindred spirit and heart.
The giggles of single girls sharing beach stories, shared expectations 
before my wedding night, secrets that only each other could understand.

Conversations filled with confusion trying to make sense of a Christian
circle gone bad. "I guess this is Good-bye."
Serious, stern words hold my gaze, "It will never be good-bye for us."
 Tears of joy and tears of sorrow.
Weddings, births, loved one passing through the valley.

Parting geographic locations with saddened hearts.
You are the one I call when the skies are dark, 
when they weight of the world presses me to the ground.
You always have a story or song to sing that makes me LOL-laugh out loud, really.
-laughter that bellows from deep down in our insides--did I say "potty"?

Walking this earthy journey together-kindred hearts.
I am so glad that you are my FRIEND.

Five-Minute Friday: Jump

Words popping up today like the tiny green shoots bursting through the bare soil. Good things are to come. 
I am making words JUMP today with the ladies from The Gypsy Mama. She gives the prompt and we see what green grows from our fingertips.


When the road is dark taking the next step can be daunting. Wrong turns have been taken before. You know what it's like to feel lost.

The next step. Life beckons you forward: you have no choice. But feet are planted firmly in the path. Frozen, they will not move.

But you did find your way before when the wilderness engulfed you. He did take your hand and lead on the safe path. Your wrong turn was just  a momentary detour adding  twists and curls to the overall itinerary.

The way is before you-the end is not in sight. Light shines upon your feet and you can only see where to place your right foot.

Take courage. He will pick you up if you fall. And if you do turn to the left, His unfolding path will bend to meet ypu.

Breathe deep and JUMP.
