Living Wide

Five Minute Friday on: Wide

Whether you're opening wide for the hygienist to get a better look at your molars or your arms are wide open in preparation for a loving hug, it's rare to hear the word "wide" without it's loyal friend "open".

My best friend and I are wide. Where honesty flows, hurts slip out of yucky wide places alongside the oozing openness of love and care for each other.

Here I am. You can see it all, this vast expanse of my horizon. As far as the eye can see.

Wide brings people in. Includes. Shares depth and space. Fullness. To see better, include more.

You can't hide when you live wide.

"I pray that your love will have deep roots. I pray that it will have a strong foundation. May you have power with all God’s people to understand Christ’s love. May you know how wide and long and high and deep it is. And may you know his love, even though it can’t be known completely. Then you will be filled with everything God has for you." (Ephesians 3:17-19)
