Five-Minute Friday: Open

You are stretched out and wide open,
sprawling with days yet untouched
by my own clumsy hands
and I want to fall
without abandon
into You.

You are time and no time
and newness and old
and fresh starts and rich history
and I want to live like
I've been invited into Your eternity

Where new years and old years and
no years
blend together
and my only resolution
is to love You
without abandon.

Starting here.


  1. You were before me in Five Minute Friday...and I'm so glad to have discovered your blog! Just from reading this post and seeing on the sidebar the other topics you blog about, I think we have a lot in common...another kindred spirit mama. :) Looking forward to reading more of your blog...

  2. what a deelish writing to enjoy.
    love it.

  3. Love FMF for all of the goodness I discover through it. Your place is just another addition.

    "Where new years and old years and no years blend together..."

    Yep, that's my favorite line.

  4. I echo this prayer of yours today: "my only resolution
    is to love You
    without abandon."


There's nothing better than good conversation ... but not while talking to myself. Will you play a part in this discussion?

AND will you pretty please have your email linked to your account or leave it for me so I can respond?

Thanks for taking the time to make these thoughts into conversation.
