Hey everybody! Welcome to Friday! Time for a little write out your heart in 5 minutes with no editing, no stressing–just lots of fast typing, fun. Today’s word prompt: Beyond
Beyond the ocean’s there are worlds to discover, sights to see, places to visit, people to meet. Send me on a plane across the pond and I’ll jump with my feet first. I’ll flounder around trying to get my barrings and wonder why did I come when I only have a few weeks. My heart will want to stay forever. Beyond the hello’s loom the good-bye’s that break my heart all over again. I’d pack up all of my people in a neat little caravan and take them along on my journey if only that were so. Instead, I’ll keep looking beyond the good-bye to the next hello. Whenever that may come. To love deeply and to experience the world and to know God, I’ve learned that I have to squish my eyes tight shut and jump into the unknown–the place beyond the comfortable and the safe.
I always want a couple more minutes but I’ll leave it at that and keep you wondering what else I would say. Until then…your turn!
p.s. this is the picture I had in my head while I was writing…and let me tell you, it was absolutely terrifying to jump off that cliff but absolutely worth it!
