Midnight at the Shelter

It was a quiet night in the lower ninth. Godís blessings come in small packages. Itís after prayers at the shelter and everyone is tucked in and snoring. Thank you Jesus. (35 words)


The Morning News

A morning paper means it goes to bed at midnight. My job is to tuck it in. Unfortunately, the evil-doers of this world donít wear watches. Iím on twenty-four/seven, itís an occupational hazard. But, itís my choice in life, and I thank the Lord daily for the opportunity. (49 words)


Real People Sleep

Beepers, cell phones, even email that chirps. If I listened to God as much as I listen to electronics my life would be so much easier. However, I have to trust God to let me sleep even though the electronics do not. (42 words)


Show me the Fountain

At 29 years old I shouldnít have to worry about looks. Long hours and a poor diet have turned my body into something only the Lord could love. Well, the Lord and my mother. I guess will continue to look for the fountain, some magic potion, and keep praying. (49 words)


Good thing God is Fair

Good thing God is fair cause I am questioning charges by the auto repair shop. They have always been honest with me so itís probably my own naivetť. I will pray for them and my own shortcomings; and, trust the Lord to show me the fair way to love my neighbor. (50 words)




If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Loved all of them, especially the second one. You have a great MC here.
Marita Vandertogt 26 Sep 2007
My fav - Midnight at the Shelter... such a strong visual - and of course, the electronic intruders. Little nuggets with big messages!
darlene hight 26 Sep 2007
Your writer's voice is very strong. The last one hit a chord with me possibly because of a situation that I am in the middle of. Darlene

I'm of the same mind as Kristin only its too late to rip mine to smithereens.
Allison Egley  25 Sep 2007
I agree with some of the other. Very good, and the one about electronics was an "ouch."
Verna Cole Mitchell  23 Sep 2007
Each one shared a truth well, but I liked "Show Me the Fountain" the best, the reason being obvious.
Betty Castleberry 23 Sep 2007
Neat little reads with good messages. I like Real People Sleep the best. Makes me think.
Joanne Sher  22 Sep 2007
Love your MC - and each one of these, for different reasons. I REALLY gotta give this a try!
Laurie Walker 22 Sep 2007
Ah Dub - you must have seen me yesterday morning when you wrote Fountain...thank you for making me 29 ;)
Kristen Hester 22 Sep 2007
I really enjoyed these. Great writing. So many images packed into so few words. Great job. I really liked the one about electronics. That one convicted me.
Deborah Porter  21 Sep 2007
Well done, Dub. I particularly liked the one about the morning paper and Show Me the Fountain. I really enjoyed the fact that they were all self-contained, but they had the same character. Like five chapters from a really short novel. I'm glad you jumped into the "snap-shorts" mini-Challenge! Love, Deb
Linda Roth 21 Sep 2007
Dub, Real People Sleep especially speaks to me. Wow! Do I relate! You put a lot of thought into these. Thanks for sharing them.

A master at work - a pleasure to read ... and learn.
Linda Germain  21 Sep 2007
I can really picture the shelter where everyone is tucked in and snoring. The electronics interrupting our rest is a biggy for me too. Right on, friend!
Jan Ackerson  21 Sep 2007
Loved 'em all, my favorite was the last one. I like this gal's voice, she's a cool cookie.
