Ready to “fingerpaint with words”?
Joining today with Gypsy Mama’s “Five Minute Friday” writing prompt.Write for 5 minutes, unedited, and then stop.
Today’s topic is “Distance”.
I’d go the distance with you, for you.
I’ll vouch for you. I’ll stand up for you. I’ll be your friend.
“Go the extra mile”– like the Master said. Will you let me go with you?
It’s no fun to walk the long distances alone. Walking together is much more fun, more rewarding.
He goes the extra distance for me. Each day. And Easter I celebrate that.
I live a far distance from many loved ones. You?
I live a near distance to those I don’t know as well. You?
I wish to cross those boundaries. You?
But among those that live a closer distance… I’m also getting closer in heart to those. You?
And for those wh0 live faraway, close hearts aren’t dependent upon distance, either.
The distances I want to cross are: closer hearts to people
Family friends neighbors strangers
And a closer heart to JesusYou?
I have one more minute to write
And I realize that in this world
Distances are getting “smaller”
Because of the internet.
I can cross over many miles and meet beautiful people
Like you, and you, and you
But it is no substitute for one-on-one chats in a coffee shop
or in a living room.
