Julie's garden, like most every other garden, had been growing and developing at a phenominal rate, ever since she was born. Why she had everything one could imagine in her garden--both good and bad. And, today someone special was coming to check it out.

The thing is, Julie was unaware that this special someone was coming to check out how her garden had grown. Even though she was always prepared; today would be an expeception.

When The Special One came, he saw many good things in her garden--decency, kindness, thougtfulness and caring but He also saw some fruit of the garden that was not good-- such as greed, coveting a negihbor's new house and not being a caring and concerned mother.

His arrival was unnoticed but His exit was quite clear. He left a message in a small corner of her garden. It read, "Julia, you have a lovely garden but please give up the greed, the coveting and uncaring ways toward your children..Your best friend and Creator, God."

Nice work! I think you had room to elaborate a little more -- to develop this to give the reader a bigger picture of the garden and both the good and bad fruit. Thanks for sharing! :)

I like the message you were developing here. You cut it too short, however, and left God looking kind of cruel, I think. Hope you work some more on this. Nice concept.
