Five Minute Friday (on Saturday): Exhale

July, and the long days lie in variegated sun and shade. The frenzy to grow has given way to an easy abundance: more leaf than blossom, fruits coming to a slow ripeness, crickets and frogs at a steady pulse in the evenings. Inhale.

We ate fried chicken, threw water balloons and frisbees, watched a child delight in bubbles, celebrated the Christ Who makes us free.

We ended the day with weary bones and sweaty skins and souls made glad.

He gives to His beloved sleep.


He is good.

Thanks, Lisa-Jo!
