On Fridays, we gather at Lisa-Jo Baker’s blog to share our five-minute writes! All you have to do is write to the prompt for five minutes, no edits. This week’s prompt is “belong.”
Here I go!
Something about the word “belong”…it started in second grade, when I was old enough to know who belonged and who didn’t. School is a harsh place for the word belonging, especially for a shy, sensitive only child who wanted so badly to belong.
She went home every afternoon, where she could rest and find her haven from the cliques and backbiters. She listened to her parents’ soothing records, and learned to love violin music.
The first place she belonged, outside of home, was in the orchestra, where the conductor did his best to enlighten young artistic minds.
Later, as her hair grayed, she found the Master Artist, who had created her from his own colors, who guided her heart to true love.
With Him we all belong.
That’s my five-minute write for this week. See you next Friday!
