One Minute Writers' Prompt

The "writing prompt" for today is the word "child" & it immediately takes me to one sunny afternoon only about 7 years ago in my livingroom. I was listening to a new worship CD & could not resist twirling around & around because of the joy that it brought up in me. As I twirled I caught a reflection of myself in the glass of a picture over our fireplace & it looked like a little girl twirling in front of her Daddy, feeling totally loved & accepted. I stopped & pondered that for a bit & realized that I had not been a twirly kind of kid; I was always mature, responsible & cautious. But from that momment on I have intentionally gone after the fun side of life & the extravagantly free version of following after God, & it has been an amazing ride so far!

  1. That is terrific Brenda. I know exactly what you are talking about.

    Matthew 18:3-4
    "Amen, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven. Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven."


Hi Thanks for reading! Please leave a comment even if it has nothing to do with the specific blog, it's great to know that you are writing stuff that real live people actually read, ya know?
