Megan stared at the stain, horrified.
Megan stared at the stain, horrified. The mark only grew as she rubbed it with her chubby hand. She shouldn’t have been drawing on Granny’s beautiful lace tablecloth.
Megan heard her Granny approach. There was no hiding now.
“I ruined your tablecloth,” Megan confessed with tears.
Granny reached for the picture. “If I can have this masterpiece, it will more than pay for a hundred tablecloths,” Granny said with a smile and a hug.
Megan stared at the stain, horrified. She was at her son’s school for a sting operation. Someone had been stealing money, so she’d set a trap. Before arriving, the police officer in her had been eager to learn the identity of the thief.
Now, as she shone the florescent light on her son’s hands, she was shocked that they were marked, indicating his guilt.
In one moment, Megan transformed from professional detective to anguished mother.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
