Exhale Fear

Pain in childbirth
Holding my breath
Breathe nurse prods
I must inhale oxygen
exhale carbon dioxide

Watching him grow
Often I held my breath
Amazed at his creativity

Now he’s grown
Finding his own way
I must inhale Spirit
exhale fear and trust God

I am a Jesus Freak, and I don't care who knows it. I am a wife, mother, sister, aunt, daughter, and friend. My blood family is only part of the larger family of Christ that I belong to. I love to write, especially about my dear Savior.

  1. I really like the way the “breath” came along with you in every stage of parenthood. It is so hard to let go, but trusting in a higher power does give us reassurance.

  2. Exhale fear and inhale God. Yes! I keep reminding myself of that as I am faced with new challenges daily. I have my mother living with us now, She has Alzheimers and now she is amazed that she has a daughter and that she is me. Inhale God, exhale fear.
