Five Minute Friday : In Between

I am linking up with Lisa Jo today for 5 minutes of writing, dreaming, and sharing.  Check out more here.

5 minutes.
One word (or, today, two).
No editing.
No over thinking.
Just write.


In Between

I watch you hang the ornament and touch the one that looks like you.  All dressed up ready to go out for a Daddy/Daughter Dance.  In Between a baby and a young girl.  

Not quite yet ready for twirls on your own, but needing a hand to hold.

  The satin dress shimmers and your smile sweetens and your Daddy watches your every move.  In the same way, our Heavenly Father watches us while we dance for Him.  He takes our hands, not quite ready for life and yet trusting Him for the dance.  For the song to come and our lives to be touched. May you always hold your Daddy's hand and may you always run to your Father - the one who holds the earth in His hands. 

And may you, and may I
always twirl for Him
as we are in between these worlds of Earth and our Sweet Home.

This is just gorgeous! I love your take on this - your direction. So true. If I had a daughter - these would be my sentiments as well.

Oh Angie - this is such a sweet post. I love it. Hope you have a blessed Friday with your little girl and your family :)

Angie said...

Thanks April! These photos remind me of these sweet times. Happy Friday to you!

Thank you. With one daughter and three sons, it is a delight to have a moment like this!

Oh so much beauty in this post. Brings tears to my eyes. We have a daughter who will be 3 in August, and what I enjoy the most is watching her grow more and more into her daddy's love and even more so into her Heavenly Father's love!!

Angie said...

Eva~ Three is such a sweet age! And to have an earthly Father who loves on a daughter is such a gift! You are blessed!

This post truly warms my heart. Oh how our Daddy God watches our every move as we dance for Him! Have a blessed weekend.

Oh friend, I love this!! (we met on twitter - i am @offthepew) and then as I completed this, my first FMF, I saw your picture and had to read what you wrote. Beautiful. Isn't parenting the most gorgeous, raw, revealing, practical way for us to be reminding of ALL HE HAS DONE FOR US!?! Well done precious friend. Love, love.

A beautiful post, Angie. A lovely picture of always dancing for Him. Blessings.

Your words make me remember my own daughter's Daddy/daughter dances. Thank you for also reminding me that I am always dancing with my Father.

Beautiful analogy. Loved the picture you've painted with your words. There's something so wonderful about knowing we are held when we twirl about that brings such an incredible sense of peace. ~Tanya, visiting from FMF

What a beautiful comparison - of your young daughter and her daddy and ourselves with our heavenly Father. As someone who didn't grow up with a great father-daughter relationship, this description brought me comfort today.
