The Gypsy Mama gives us a word to write about for five minutes flat. The word for today is ...GRASP.
When I think of the word grasp, I think of reaching and holding on to the ones I love. I want to protect them from life and hurts in this world. I want to teach them and treasure them. As I look at this photo of little Kenzie (my great niece), I am reminded that I cannot grasp her enough. After all, she lives in Florida which is a distance from Arizona. I treasure the times I do have with her.
But I've discovered that instead of grasping, I can trust God with her life. I can pray for her.
I've tried grasping the things I love in the past. But I cannot hold on to them tightly enough.
I need to open my hand and release.
I am releasing them to One far more capable than myself.
I am recognizing that He knows what's best. And I make the choice to trust Him with those I love so dearly.
How about you? Are you grasping those you love?
Blessings and love,
