Five Minute Friday: Close



I couldn’t feel Him

They told me He was close

But there wasn’t peace in my soul.

I screamed at Him.

Why did you take her?

I wasn’t ready,

It couldn’t have been time.

I spiraled down, away from Him.

Tears fell

For oh so long,

Then one day I was done.

It took three and a half years,

But I forgave Him.

I came back.

I found the place where I could heal.

That was almost a year ago, now.

This time

I know it was time

Tears fall,

But it’s only because I miss him.

This time,

I’m not mad at God.

Grandpa’s in a better place.

And I’ll be there someday

This time

I have peace

Because I know God is close

This time

I think I can heal

I can feel Him

Holding me close

Oh, so close.




I think this ^ explains why I haven’t posted in over a month. At least a little bit. My Grandpa passed away May 1, 2014. and I haven’t written hardly at all. I’m going to try to start writing something for this blog every once in a while now. No promises as to the schedule though. The only reason I even posted this is because I saw the prompt and knew I had to write for it.

Five Minute Friday: Fly

So… I have been getting these emails from a blog I subscribed to. And every Friday, this lady writes on a word for five minutes, then posts it on her blog. And invites everyone to join in and link up their posts. Long story short, I finally caved and did it. 🙂 And you should do it too!

Here is the link to her post today:

And here is mine:

I Soar on these words,
I see the hearts of my characters
I am absorbed in these lives and stories
This is my life,
I couldn’t imagine my life any other way
This is truly God’s call on my life
I didn’t think so before,
But now I fly
I soar
On words
Through worlds of my making
Through adventures and trials
And decisions to be made
I love this
These characters are a part of my heart now
If I couldn’t write,
They would keep on existing
Inside of my head
This is my calling
To show you the world through different eyes.
I love this life so much
And I know God
Put this love in my life
It lifts up my spirit.

P.S. See you all in 2 weeks and one day when my next post is going to pop up on here! 🙂
