I am linking up for Five Minute Friday. The FMF is hosted by Kate Motaung on her blog Heading Home. Today’s prompt is “more.” I love spending time with this crew, but missed being with them last night as I was moderating the #slatespeak conversation. I love the communities I have found online; both FMF and SlateSpeak love me for who God created to be and I always feel like I belong there.
Sometimes the world can seem dark and lonely or that it is full of so much hatred and war. I find myself looking to find more of the good stuff. So here is a poem that formed in my heart, soul and mind last night and into today.
By Tara L. Ulrich
More flowers blooming
More time with friends
who always show you that you belong.
More words that give life
and don’t tear down
More words that embody the gospel
“to do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly”
More sunsets and sunrises
A constant reminder of God’s goodness
More of hearing and knowing each other’s stories
For our hearts are more entertwined than we could ever imagine.
More little ones who are carefree
and remind us that God calls us to trust.
More of the goodness of the world
Found in the gift
Of love, laughter, tears and friendship
