Five Minute Friday: Wide

Five Minute Friday
I'm running late, but since it's still Friday, I'm doing Five Minute Friday with Lisa-Jo Baker. It's five minutes of focused writing. No editing, back pedaling, just writing. So, here's my Five Minute Friday for today. 


Man, am I wide. No seriously. I don't realize it when I'm just living, but when I look at a photo I take up the space of two people. When did that happen?

I mean, I've always been large, but now it's beyond large. It's wide. Maybe I should put one of those wide-load stickers on my back.
You know what bothers me? When people try to deny that I'm wide. How can I trust your opinion on other things when you can't be honest about that? I mean, I don't want you to call me a cow, but don't say I'm not wide.

I hope that I've gotten wide in other ways besides physically. Has my heart widened? Do I love God and others more than I did before? Has my knowledge base widened. Even more importantly, has my wisdom widen? No use in having knowledge if you don't know how to live it.

Well, I'm wide. I need to deal with it. Maybe being honest here will be the first step. 

Well, there you go. Five minutes on wide. Off the top of my head. No editing.

Please do not be so hard on yourself. Your heart shines.

Yes, you are wide but it seems you have a very wide heart which is good. Loving God enables us to love others.
