ten and two




- from pinterest -



Ten and two, I kept telling myself.

Sensationally terrified, I pressed on, and the world flew past.


His quiet cheers tamed my fear: that's it; nice and slow.


Suddenly the dreams of cruising through the Australian countryside seemed too far off.

What will happen in those moments? Will fear captivate me like it does now?

But I imagine that when I first walked, I was terrified. And as soon as I walked, I wanted to run; as soon as I ran, I wanted to fly.

I suppose, for now, the closest thing to flying will be riding behind this wheel, feeling the wind through my hair, sensational fear running through my bones.

And now I know that I was made to reach farther and farther. The farther I reach, the more I find myself; the more I find myself, the more I want to trust the One Who saved me.

p.s. I'm pretty sure ten and two isn't the official way to hold a steering wheel anymore. (just a disclaimer)

  1. I cannot wait until I can drive. (In SA it's only legal to drive at 18)
    But I'm sure it's a thrilling feeling, being behind the wheel for the first time.

    I love your blog. Just, so you know.

  3. Yes yes yes! I have my permit and driving is so fun but at first it was quite intimidating. It still is when there's heavy traffic.
    And this is just so beautiful, your writing is always so beautiful.

    Second, I can't wait until I can drive, but that means driving my younger brother and sister everywhere.
