A Wink And A Smile

Routine called grandpa Fred's olden soul down the hallway toting a deficient coffee cup. Enroute to the kitchen Grandpa met up with baby Ethan wheeling free-style in his walker and blocking the way to the percolator. Age met innocence with a wink and a smile and another day began. (50)

Tomorrow

An airy, autumn afternoon encountered a lone woman stilly weeping on a faded porch swing. The wind's cry and whirl of falling leaves wearied her mind with echos from a bitter past. She opened her eyes to the setting sun and rainbows flickered on her lashes promising a brighter tomorrow. (50)

Violets

Purple, withered violets cling to downey leaves in grandma's tea cups on my window sill. Grandpa left us to be with Jesus several years ago and his beloved bride joined them two short years later. I reluctantly pluck the lifeless buds and water them one last time with my tears. (50)

Portrait

A middle-aged mother watches breathlessly as her sons and daughter assemble for a long, overdue, family portrait. She remembers sweet, secret dreams in her children's shining, blue eyes and in their adolescent smiles revisits indescribable joy. The photograph is finally taken as her heart celebrates and steals the moment. (50)

Goodnight

The day ran out but not all the tasks on the exhausted woman's list. Her family all slept soundly but lunches weren't prepared and the coffee wasn't ready. Lo, God, in his mercy, had allowed her to forget to pay the electric bill and the lights suddenly, splendidly went out. (50)

NOT easy! but lots of fun!

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

Donna, I thought they were all absolutely beautiful and so heartwarming! My favourite has to be "A Wink and a Smile" though. Just reading it caused my mouth to curve upwards! :-) I think you rose to the challenge quite beautifully! With love, Deb

Great job! I loved the "Wink and a Smile" one as well as the "Goodnight" one! One could have thought having the power go out would be one more weight on her shoulders ... but rather it gave her an excuse to go to bed! Great job!!!! One question ... is 'stilly' a word?? =) Donna

Well I'm sure glad I read Donna's review first - else you would have had two identical reviews! What the heck - I agree exactly with what Donna had to say! Good work Donnalynn.
