I am linking up for Five Minute Friday. The FMF is hosted by Kate Motaung on her blog Heading Home. Today’s prompt is “embrace.” I love spending time with this crew. They bless me beyond words. We’d love to have you join us. Just hop onto Twitter on Thursday evenings and follow the #fmfparty. Hope to see you there!
Tears fell from her eyes as she sat and told her story. Every time she begins to unlock this story and tell more people; tears fall from her eyes as she embraces telling her story. She cannot help but live out her new mantra; words from Brene Brown “The bravest thing you’ll ever do is tell your story.” In telling her story, she continues to embrace who she is.
Her fingers tap across the keyboard as she tells yet another story or writes another poem. Her soul is bursting as the words travel onto the page. Words are her love language and it is words that gives her so much life. In living out these gifts, she again is embracing who God created her to be; a writer–a bearer of the Word made flesh in this broken fractured world.
She wraps her arms around her friend’s shoulders as she grieves. She isn’t afraid to be the shoulder for her to cry on. She wont let go until she knows her friend is ok. In this loving embrace, she reminds her friend that she is not alone in her joy and her grief. Another of the gifts God gave her as she embraces this gift in her life.
There are so many communities that she embraces; that bring her such beauty and grace. She embraces each of them with their unique gifts. There is wine, gin and other beverages spread out on the table. Snacks also for her friends to enjoy. At the table, we sit and break bread. These are communities where we embrace each other in all of our uniqueness. They are places where we are all truly seen, known and loved!
