Near – Five Minute Friday challenge


The warmth of the fire when I sit close
The baby’s smell when I kiss his head
The feel of God’s kiss when He brushes wind against my cheek
The rush of hope as a goal comes within sight

Near as our breath, He is
Hovering over us like a protective new parent
Guardian angel unfelt but present
The communion of saints so very close

The smell of yeast bread moments before the timer
The salty air in nostrils on beach walks
The presence of deceased loved ones on special days
Relationships grown cold in need of nurturing

Five Minutes Friday is a blog that encourages Christian writers to spend five minutes each Friday writing on the word or theme of the day.

  1. Chris, this is beautiful. I love the near of the yeast bread before the timer. Brings back memories of my mom as she was a bread baker and every time I bake one, she is near. Thank you.
