On, In and Around Mondays: About a Girl
There is something about a girl.
Mine is in her new orange coat. She is chattering about how the rosettes have buttons behind them, how she feels so warm, how the coat comes down past her knees, and isn't it just perfect to go with the sunset.
My Eldest and I are enchanted. We follow our orange-coat girl around with our cameras. Taking pictures of her just being her.
Maybe we think of girls as God's afterthought. Yes, I think we sometimes do. As if the arrangement of Genesis was making some kind of statement about God's care for girls. Or their relative importance.
My girl, in her new orange coat, is not an afterthought. She is the only thought you can possibly manage for the whole time you walk around at sunset time. She is the crown of the day, the seal on our hearts. And it seems to me God must think so too.
On, In and Around Mondays (which partly means you can post any day and still add a link) is an invitation to write from where you are. Tell us what is on, in, around (over, under, near, by...) you. Feel free to write any which way... compose a tight poem or just ramble for a few paragraphs. But we should feel a sense of place.
Would you like to try? Write something 'in place' and add your link below.
If you could kindly link back here when you post, it will create a central meeting place. :)
