Happier Days

Photo by Roger Bultot It was late summer and for their second date, he took her to the street food festival.  Holding hands, they squeezed through the crowd.  “Lana, what would you like to try?” “The Greek Jewish food.” They barely finished eating the food when it began to rain.  Fortunately, he lived close by.  …

Joe Goes Clubbing

I must be out of my mind, Joe thought to himself. I'm actually going to a nightclub which I have never done in my entire life. I'll probably be the oldest person there. Love certainly makes us do crazy things sometimes. "You look so adorable," Kalisha said. "Adorable?" She laughed. "Adorable and sexy." "Sexy is …

The Lord Will Hear

For in You, O Lord, I hope; You will hear, O Lord my God - Psalm 38:15 When I read this, I thought of blind Bartimaeus. He sat begging on the road and when he heard that Jesus was in Jericho, he cried out, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!” Many of the people in the crowd told him …

Lunch For Two

Photo by Dale Rogerson As he waited for his orders of veggie Hot Dogs, he thought how smart he had been to come before noon to avoid the crowd.  The parking lot was virtually empty.  Grabbing the bags, he turned to leave and spotted Aimee heading towards him.  Drat.  Of all the people… “Hello, Siran.” …

Jesus is Willing

I see God’s love manifested through Jesus’ healing of the leper. Leprosy was a terrible disease.  It disfigured people and made them outcasts in their communities. A person with leprosy had to tear his clothes and put a covering upon his upper lip and cry, “unclean, unclean.” They were rejected and avoided.  No one wanted …

Up a Sycamore Tree

He wanted to see Jesus but the crowd was too thick to jostle through.  He climbed a sycamore tree instead.  When Jesus came that way, He stopped, looked up and said, “Zacchaeus come down immediately.  I must stay at your house today.” 42 Words This was written for the Weekend Writing Prompt by Sammi Cox. …

A Free Man

So if the Son makes you free, then you will be truly free - John 8:36 I didn't think that anybody cared about me. Why should they? I was a lowlife. I ran with the wrong crowd. Got into trouble all of the time. Gave my poor Mama a lot of grief. My Dad left …
