Five Minute Friday — Ache

Around here we write for five minutes flat on Fridays.

So we take five minutes on Friday

and write like we used to finger paint

. For joy in the process

No matter how messy the result.


Today’s Prompt¬† –Ache


Have you ever wanted something so badly it hurt?
Something that you knew was attainable?
Something that would do you good and not evil?
But as you counted the cost. . .it was so great.
As you check your assets. . .you had just enough.
You felt the ache
It was growing.
You looked at the pearl.
It was glowing.

As you paid the price, you felt relief.
The ache satisfied.
You had all you needed.

My soul breaketh for the longing that it hath unto thy judgments at all times. Psalms 119:20
