Five Minute Friday: Vivid

I’m joining the Gypsy Mama and her Five Minute Fridays. Rules are: for only five short, bold, beautiful minutes. Unscripted and unedited. We just write without worrying if it’s just right or not. Won’t you join us?

Memories flash in front of me, painting a picture so vivid I could reach out and grab it,

At unexpected times. At inconvenient times. At unwanted times.

Some memories that I’d rather forget are forever insistent on replaying.

Vivid.

While, at the same time, I grasp for others that are just past my reach, and the blurry-ness of it all is

Vivid.

 

And I struggle to make my courage as vivid as my memory.

Deuteronomy 31:6
“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”
