This is my maiden post for the blessed team of More Than Writers. When I thought about what to write, I picked on the advice I had gotten from one of the ACW sessions I had attended in July 2020 that no writing should ever go to waste. Just like our Heavenly Father took a part of Adam's rib to create Eve, his wife, it made me think of every part of the human anatomy – no matter how minuscule or large the human parts are, the Lord God found some use and purpose for their role in the human body. Nothing is wasted. So, welcome to my ‘NOTHING IS WASTED SERIES,’ in which my first episode springs from a 10 minutes freewheeling writing exercise we were asked to engage in.
The topic of the ACW session was ‘Creating amidst Chaos' - about God’s creation and creativity. God created a magnificent world in the midst of chaos! That tells me that like our Father, we must continue to be creative no matter the ‘chaos’ we are in. Beauty will come out of the ashes. Be encouraged to make a start if you are still hesitating. Below is that writing exercise - raw and undiluted!
Well, just as the wind carries up dust particles, objects and anything in its wake so goes my writing in this page picking up anything that my mind throws at it as it scribbles on. The wind gets fast, busy, cold or even hot and sometimes even dangerous. I can think of times when I have felt the teeth of the wind on my skin and inside my nose – These were not pleasant. How about when the wind is still and absent? I felt hot and uncomfortable. And then I remember those times when the wind was beautiful to feel on my entire body. I thought about the majesty of Abba my Father in Heaven and blew him invisible kisses for sending such feelings of love from the wind, caressing my entire being and making my soul at one with Him.
At that moment, there was definitely satisfaction, contentment, peace and the feeling to fly and be carried away or to ride with the wind to wherever it would take me!!
An enjoyable read. Thanks for sharing, Sophia. I particularly liked your image of the teeth of the wind contrasted with the gentle kisses of the wind.ReplyDelete
