Painting the Sky with Abba

Create

“Would you like to create something with me?” Abba asked little girl with anticipation in his voice.

“What are we going to create?” little girl asked, staring up at him with wonder.

Abba reached down and picked up a paintbrush that was sitting on the ground beside him. There were numerous cans of paint there as well. Abba dipped his brush in a few different colors of paint. Then he brought the brush up in a broad sweeping motion going from one side to the other.

Little girl stared at the brush in awe as it moved from one side to the other. She saw beautiful colors and light and movement as the brush moved back and forth. She was amazed at all she was taking in, “What are you painting, Abba?”

“The sky. We’re going to paint the sky today!” Abba said as he dipped the brush in the different colors again and then lifted his brush and went from one side to the other. Brilliant colors and light followed everywhere Abba’s brush went and the sky lit up like little girl had never seen before.

“That’s beautiful, Abba! I love it!” little girl said, unable to take her eyes off of the glittering sky that sparkled here and flashed there. She was taken aback at what Abba had shown her today.

to write is to live is to pray

I am joining with Lisa Jo Baker 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:

Writer

What is a writer anyway?
Creator, word mixer-master,
Putting together concepts most only see
in their most imaginative of moments

To write is to live is to pray is to make a mark
on this earth saying, “Yes, I was here.”

To write is to live is to pray is to take in the divine breath
and then slowly, word by exacting word, breathe out again

To write is to live is to pray is to give what’s been given back
to the One who gave it first

To write is to give expression to the holy within

To write is to give voice to the desire for G-d within

To write is to choose to let yourself be seen and known
Just a little bit more
One word at a time

Write, create, fashion, form, breathe
Take it in,
Give it all back again
