{{It is Friday. Today I link with Lisa Jo Baker for Five Minute Friday. Here is how it works…. One word prompt. Five minutes. No editing. Lots of women. Everyone writes on the same word. Equals a great time.}}

Today’s Word …. FLY.

I am sitting here in disbelief….Can this really be the word?

Can I just say, “Easy, peasy?”. This is the easiest FMF prompt yet. Not that I have done very many but still.

I finished reading Freefall to Fly by Rebekah Lyons on Wednesday night. I had bought it back in June, as it was part of my summer reading. Each time that I picked it up, I put it back on my shelf, deciding the time was not yet to be. But this week, I read it and knew in my heart that the timing had been perfect. This will be one of my favorite books. It is underlined and written in, throughout the entire book. I loved this book.

Fly is what I want to do.

OK, I do not have a fear of flying in a plane. And I have no desire to fly like a bird so I will never attempt any aerial sport. But I have wanted to fly. I want to feel free in my own skin. In whatever gifts the Lord has deemed to give me. I want to take flight, use them and somehow live a life that brings Him glory.

I saved a quote that I read a while ago….

It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight harder for it to learn to fly while remaining an egg. We are like eggs at present. And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg. We must be hatched or go bad. (C.S.Lewis)

I’m feeling challenged. Space is getting tight in this egg. I want to hatch. And fly. Or maybe soar….

They will soar high on wings like eagles. (Isaiah 40: 31b, NLT).
