Joining Lisa Jo today for her five-minute word prompt on GRATEFUL.
Pouring words for five minutes with no editing.
I’m grateful for water that ripples and waves that crash.
For sand that sings beneath my feet.
For “I do” and “I love you” and a tender smile.
I’m grateful for family and friends and the celebration of marriage.
For moments that stop and memories that linger.
I’m grateful for the feathered and the furred.
For the velvet petal and the leathery leaf.
For sky and water that meet at the horizon.
For breezes that whisper and winds that roar.
For sun and clouds, for storms and calm in season.
For times to sail and times to anchor.
For stars that glitter in the dark.
For seemingly impossible dreams.
For arms that hold me in every circumstance.
I’m grateful for a great and creative God who reaches down
to the speck that is me.
To be in this moment in this place in this time.
I’m grateful today for a heart that overflows.
Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. ~Colossians 3:16 (NIV)
