Five Minute Friday :: She

Susie's Birthday, etc 008

Go ::

She just turned 4 this week.

Yet limbs and words and imagination

speak to 16 at least.

I remember when she was born.

I told her the story on her birthday

night and how she couldn’t wait to

push herself into the world.

Ready to take it on with all of it’s

mess and uncertainty and she with her

determination and energy and always

her joy.

Like your mama you are, sweet one.

Like her mama too since you bear

her name.  Susanne of the generations

gone by, you reached into my heart

and took a forever claim long before

you were born.  I imagined a daughter

with your Name.

And in the heart of Your Creator, before

time began, He imagined you.

He chose you as His own before the
foundation of the world


and knit you
together in my womb

and made

a name for you that is re-made in

the timeless meaning as names go.

Lily and courage, maybe it is that flower

the stretches her petals, long and fragile

yet somehow not.  Sturdy they are to

fly in beauty into the world.  To plant

itself in this world with the extravagance

of a lovely necessity.  Destined to make

the world, your ever changing, growing world

different.  Just like your eyes when they

are concentrating, or laughing, or sad, so sad, or

filled with wonder anew…open up and never close again.

This LIFE is meant for you!
