Five Minute Friday: Imagine

It's a sunny day. The leaves are glistening with the color of light and shadow, gently swaying in the kindest, loveliest breeze a day can bring. And I sit here on my couch. Learning a new laptop. Trying to write something profound, provocative and even pithy. And why not? Writers do that, right?
My baby girl sits at my feet playing with her toys trying her best to mimic the sounds coming from her toy keyboard. Two. One. The green frog says ribbit … ribbit. And my daughter adds her own sounds, her own music. Her own joy.
Then I imagine us twenty years from now. Will the light brought to the leaves be brighter or duller? Will her words carry the soft sounds of joy like today's wind touches the leaves outside? Will her world be one in which she can carry her dreams to her desired destination as I sit back and marvel at the beauty inside her?
I hope so. I hope she touches the Hand of the One Who created her and walks with Him down the streets of her tomorrow.

I'm feeling my unborn son kick hard in the middle of the night here and I too am hoping, praying, that he will always seek comfort in the shadow of His wing. It's terrifying, and yet, it's HOPE.

"I hope so. I hope she touches the Hand of the One Who created her and walks with Him down the streets of her tomorrow." This too is the prayer of my heart for my children. Visiting you from the Five Minute Friday!
