Five Minute Friday: Comfort

And oh how my heart cries to make this a post about running to the arms of my Father God, burying myself deep into His neck, and just hanging out there as the minutes and hours tick by.

My comfort, I desire, were something more like this.

But when I spotted the word comfort as today’s writing prompt, by literal first thoughts were of donuts. Food. Like it or not — my comfort. My friend.

Fleeting though the comfort is. Despite how quickly discomfort follows.

I wish for a different comfort to be my default. Perhaps wishing is the only place to start.
