Five Minute Friday – Dive

It’s Five Minute Friday time for me again and I couldn’t be happier.  This is where we join Lisa-Jo Baker every Friday and spend 5 minutes writing on a one word prompt.  That’s 5 minutes without editing or over thinking.  Consider joining in the fun and camaraderie that this beautiful community of writers provide, won’t you?


Today’s prompt is: DIVE





Without air provided by my snorkel, or my tank, I am unable.  Unable to breathe underwater.  Unable to experience all that was created by the Creator under the waves that beckon. And I want to.  I so want to slip underneath those waves and discover all that there is to see.  Every brilliantly hued living thing making it’s home under the sea.


It’s often like this when I am embarking on a new adventure.  Often, this new adventure is heralded by some prompting in my spirit by God.  Something nudges me towards discovery.  And I want to dive right into it.


The sense that mystery and beauty await is almost tangible. I just know in my heart of hearts that all will be well with my soul. My heart will thump wildly before I take that first breath and plummet.


And once I’m down, down deep into the waters, whether they’re the waters of A Grand New Adventure or the actual waters of The Deep Blue Sea, I am amazed.  And awed.  And reminded why it’s always okay to trust in my Creator for my very breath.


And to dive right in.
