Today I’m linking up to The Gypsy Mama’s “Five Minute Friday”. Rules? Start a timer, write for only five minutes, and then stop! No editing, no making perfect. This week’s topic is:
When I look in the mirror I see…
The baby bump that nobody else can really see yet. And I keep waiting and feeling for that first kick! I love this time of being pregnant.
I’m also reminded of the fears that creep in, not welcome. So many friends, and even people closer to me have lost babies. Even babies that should have been “safe.” Like having to deliver a dead little girl at 32 weeks.
God has not given us a spirit of fear, but fear is there anyway. I think the temptation to fear will always be there, because I STILL worry about my already born kids! The older I get, the more I realize that only heaven will be safe. And beautiful, and glorious, and no more tears… no better place for a momma’s heart!
Writing for only five minutes? It’s awful! But kinda fun too. Maybe I’ll get the hang of it if I join in every Friday! (Saturday counts too. It’s still the weekend!)
