Free Write Friday Exercise, July 20th, 2012

Once upon a time, there was a girl who thought

That all what  was said were  true

She loved, she trusted, she gave her all

And ended up totally blue.

Every day she begged for food

And worried where she would stay

She spent her days so full of tears

Realizing she should have walked away.

Because of that one day she fell

To her knees and cried to God

Please help me start a new life today

Help me to walk only on your sod.

Because she sounded so sincere

God lifted her from her pain

He fed and clothed her and gave her hope

And turned off the clouds of rain.

Until finally with a guiding hand

She landed on her feet

She gave her thanks to him each day

By spreading his name all over  the streets.

  1. What I love most about this is its simplicity…and that simplicity is perfect for the story you are telling because really, it is a simple thing to do, to turn it over to Him and let go. That’s it! We just seem to forget that. Thank you for an inspiring write, Terry! ♥
