Holding the Secrets

I am linking up for the Five Minute Friday. The FMF is hosted by Kate Motaung over at our Five Minute Friday website. Today’s word prompt is “secret.” We would love to have you join us.

Two sisters playing in the backyard. The younger one leans in and tells a secret to her big sister. After the secret is told, silence, lips are sealed. We must not tell others what we just heard.

What was it? The name of a boy? Or another kind of secret? Whatever it is, it must not be told. It must stay locked deep in the depths of our hearts. To this day, I still hold the secrets. I will forever hold her dreams. I will keep my lips sealed and not share what she told me about her first love.

And there are secrets we tell each other now too. There is something holy in holding each other’s secrets in the palms of our hands. Secrets that carry our deepest dreams and desires. Secrets that are to be held by only those we know we can trust.

Do you want to know the secrets?

I’m not telling!

  1. As the oldest sister of three, this hit home in my heart! Sacred sister secrets bind us together whether young or like me, not so young! Thank you for sharing this sweet post, Cindy #fmf

  2. This made me smile. In high school some girlfriends and I came up with code names for all the boys we had crushes on. What’s funny is that I can remember the code names but I’m not totally sure who they apply to. 🙂

  3. I believe holding one another’s secrets IS a holy thing. It’s a sacred trust, not to be taken lightly.

  4. Being the little sister of two older brothers, I wasn’t in on any of the secrets. Boo-hoo. Oh well. That’s what good girl friends are for, right?
