Oh, How There is a Place For You: An Ode to Evelyn Rose - A Five Minute Friday post.

I know... it's once again been forever. Life, man. You know?  But I can spare five minutes and I need to find a rhythm that puts me back in this chair and while this One Word Prompt could go heavy and deal with the hard, Imma keep it Light and Happy, y'all!

Here we go:

This is a Five Minute Friday post, which simply means I set a timer and free write for five minutes flat on the one word prompt of: PLACE

{GO}


 Oh babies!!!

No matter what is going on in the world at large, or even in our world right here at home... there is something about babies that stirs up Hope and Life and Joy and oh - how we need that!

Right?  All of us, I think, are in need of a little bundle of Hope and Life and Joy right about now!


And while we didn't plan for you, Lil Miss... while you are somewhat of a surprise to us all --God knew exactly what He was doing when He breathed life into you and began to fashion and form you in your Mama's womb!

And don't think for one hot second that you were ever not wanted... You are a gift and oh how we are making room for you - in our hearts and in our homes and yes... in our hopes and lives and joy, too.

We have yet to look you full on in the eyes (soon, baby... soon!) but you have already captured our hearts and you are oh so very loved, dear one!






Evelyn Rose... your name means Life, Beauty, Little Bird... and oh how you are already bringing that to us.

We have prayed for you... and we cannot wait to meet you face to face!







We are praying that you are the best parts of your Mom and your Dad... and that you are the best version of yourself... for you are all your own, girlie! God is creating you and planting dreams and hopes... gifts and personality right into your little spirit as you grow!  We can't wait to discover how He made you and who He hopes for you to be!

 

 


Your Mama --my own only Girlie-- she is the best thing I have ever done and I am her biggest fan.  She is all grown up into an amazing person whom I am proud to call not just daughter, but friend. She is one of my favorite people...and I have heard it said --she won't hold a candle to you!

We can't wait to be your Mimi and Papa... 





Let the countdown begin...

{STOP}

Because couldn't we all use a little happy news... a break from all the hard and heavy? I know we could!




Linking up with Kate Motaung and the #fmfparty Community today.  Five Minute Fridays gives us the chance to dive right in and share what He puts on our hearts! Click HERE to read what others have to say about: "PLACE"
The FMF lowdown: The gathering happens on Twitter on Thursday nights & then we write our hearts out & hit publish all over the interwebs on Thursday & Friday (& sometimes on Tuesdays!) It's where we encourage & uplift... where we share prayer requests & praise reports... where we talk food & friends & we find support & kindred hearts. It's where we are reminded that life is good & God is good & we're not alone... & then we all write for five minutes flat, a flash mob of wordsmiths letting our hearts & our fingers do the talking tapping & we hit publish before we can second guess it all away. We'd love to have you join us!

I'm also linking up with the lovely writer communities linked below:
