Dancing to Abba’s Song

I am joining with katemotaung.com for Five Minute Friday. The goal is to write for five minutes about a word. No extreme editing; no worrying about perfect grammar, font, or punctuation. Unscripted. Unedited. Real.

Today’s prompt is:

dance - Version 2

Dancing to Abba’s Song

Little girl woke up extra early that Friday morning. She jumped out of bed and almost ran right for the chair where Abba sat every morning waiting for her to come and sit in his lap.

Before she ran to join him, she heard a beautiful sound she didn’t quite recognize at first. She stopped to wait and listen. Then she recognized what she was hearing and she was moved.

The beautiful sound was Abba’s voice as he sang a song of love. But it wasn’t just any song of love. It was a song of love he was singing about little girl. As he sang about how much he loved her, she thought her heart had skipped a beat. She was so full of joy she wanted to cry. She simply couldn’t contain everything she felt.

As she heard Abba’s voice, she jumped up and down and twirled around and danced a dance expressing the joy of being Abba’s child. Once again, little girl was overwhelmed with gratitude at all Abba had done for her.

  1. Oh, this is truly beautiful. Stunning response and writing. I loved it all. (Oh what I would give to capture just some of that child-lie joy and wonder again!)….Helen (Your FMF neighbour)

  2. I loved this post! So thankful I am your neighbor at FMF this week. (#13).
    I’m working on four paintings for my classroom right now. The fruits of the Spirit, but in Hebrew. I’ve had to study my alphabet to be sure I’m spelling them correctly under the English, and then pronunciation underneath.
    Love, Joy, Peace, and Patience. They are somehow more meaningful to me in Hebrew, though.
    Ah-ha-VAH, Sim-HA, Sha-LOME, and Sav-lah-NOOT. 🙂
