Stretch...{Five Minute Friday}

I breathe deep, look into the reflection of my mothers eyes, as tears fall.
And I just know...
this moment is good.
there is something more.

Something that I will have to wait for.
This place, this now, is going to stretch me.
Stretch me in ways I don't even know yet.

Stretch me in the hard...
Stretch me in the good...
Stretch me in the waiting and the living...
And I'm both scared and excited.

I stretch...
 ...for the dreams that lie in my heart. this place that God has me.
...and still yearn for that something more.

Something that I know is there...
But as those tears fall,
going to have to wait for a little while longer.


By His Grace and Hope,
Nicole Marie
