Momma’s Little Cherub

Megan stared at the stain, horrified, as she panned the room with her video camera. The digital screen revealed a trail of toilet paper, paused to focus on a fragrant fine powdery substance and finally ended on the chubby cherub. Grasped ever so tightly in little Joshua’s fist, were the remains of her favorite lipstick.

Wiping the tears from laughter, she deposited her son into the tub. “Guess I need a new bath mat, now.”


Purity

Megan stared at the stain, horrified. Her reflection in the mirror appeared nearly perfect, except for the pale yellow stain just below her midsection.

“Maybe no one will notice,” she reasoned.

She had always wanted to be a spotless bride, pure and ready to wear her white wedding gown with pride. Only Rob knew about the tragic day when she was 16, but somehow, the stain from her flower girl’s lemonade screamed her secret.


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

The first one has great blackmail material. "Shall I show this one to your girlfriend?" The second one is somewhat sad, except that her beloved knows, and loves her anyway. Perhaps the stain could be hidden by the bouquet?
Betty Castleberry 22 Mar 2008
The first story made me smile. The second one is bold and meaningful. Well done.
Kristen Hester 21 Mar 2008
Both of these are wonderful...and very different. Great job!
Joanney Uthe 21 Mar 2008
I love the symbolism of the stain in the second story. Great job telling the stories in so few words. Definately a keeper.

Oh Marita, the first one is so precious. I wish I'd had a video camera when my kids were little. There are so many memories you would love to capture. The ending for the second one was totally unexpected. Well done with both. Well done.
Loren T. Lowery 21 Mar 2008
Amazing that so much can be said in so few words. The second one is simply wonderful in its symbolism.
Marita Vandertogt 21 Mar 2008
Wow - these are really really good. Excellent job!
Karen Wilber  21 Mar 2008
Marita these are great--a contrast in innocence. I think I know that cherub. Better lock up my lipstick.
Jan Ackerson  20 Mar 2008
Marita, the first one is precious, but the symbolism and emotion in the second one...a real POW. Knocked this one out of the park!
Tim Pickl 20 Mar 2008
WOW!
