This weeks prompt: Jump*

Remember skipping rope? Doing hurdles in gym class? Jumping up and down for sheer joy at a birthday party? All jumping, all joyful, all easy… at the time. Now, tinged with age and hardened a bit with experience, I feel sometimes that I’ve forgotten how to jump.

How to take chances and risks. How to dive headfirst into a project, and emerge proud of what I created. How to allow my heart to leap at the touch of my husband. How to let go of what if’s and embrace how about’s. When I consider Who is holding me, what about jumping is scary? Will He truly let me fall? No, I know He is the one drawing me towards the leap.

Maybe it’s time I remember.
