April PAD, day 14.
Pinky swears are my favorite and (should be) unbreakable.
Yes, with kisses and everything else! And the word too – that’s important!
Oh how I love this.
First of all, your title is a bra. 😛 But you’ve only capitalized “Cross” so it’s obviously about your deep need for Christ.
“swear in your seatbelt” … clever
“leave the light on when you slam the door” … Your greatest fear is that He will give up on you.
“before you go, give me your word” … You’re clinging to scripture, even though you’re afraid it’s too late for. God has just had enough of your lukewarmness.
