Today’s prompt: zigzag, hash, grandma

**************************

Dash!

By Teresa Smeigh 2019

Grandma was being chased by some women who said her hash was horrible and they couldn’t eat it so she would have to wear it. She did a zigzag trying to avoid the handfuls of it that were being slung at her. Eventually, she slid on the stuff and down she went and downs she stayed. She no longer had any breath left to run anymore.

Should Have Waited For the Adults

By Teresa Smeigh 2019

The locksmith was muttering to himself. Mr. and Mrs. Johnson had said it was ok to go ahead and unlock the door. The kids were there and locked in. They didn’t understand dead bolts and so they needed him to go and unlock the door for them so they could go to school.

They should be fed as they had a carton of easter eggs left over from Easter and Tommy could pour the juice.

Great plan except for Tommy wasn’t so smart. His mama had made room in the fridge by putting regular uncooked eggs in the carton with the leftover cooked Easter eggs. Tommy poured himself and his sister a glass of juice and then cracked a hard boiled egg which was hard, juiceless, as he put it. The next egg he cracked was a juicy one as it hadn’t been cooked yet. It splashed all over the table.

Mr Johnson was greeted to the sight of the kids drinking their juice and hardboiled eggs and spooning up the uncooked ones with a spoon and eating them. Just then the bus arrived. He shooed them off, cleaned up the mess, and didn’t tell Mrs. Martin what happened. She had enough to worry about with those two kids.

The Freedom Of Forgiveness by David Augsburger


I just started to read this little book on forgiveness by David Augsburger. Forgiveness is something I struggle with. Something happened to me as a teenager and for some reason, I can’t forgive my ex-husband for it. I have been told over and over that if I can’t forgive than I will not be forgiven myself. This book says the same thing. I need to find a way to forgive him what he did to me if I want to ever be forgiven by God for what I have done during my life. This is the first time I have seen it in writing. I have heard it, but this book just appeared on the table in the community room for anyone to take. I picked it up as the title intrigued me.

Once you truly forgive you will forget it. Otherwise, it just hangs in your memory. Hmm, how interesting.

****************

Myron Augsburger stated:

“To forgive is costly. To forgive…is to carry one’s own wrath on the sin of another; the guilty one is released, the offended one frees him, by bearing his own indignation and resolving it in love. God forgives by carrying His own wrath on the sin we’ve expressed against him…He absorbs our guilt and makes us free. Forgiveness goes through the sin to freedom.
*****************

You must not forgive just the trivial things, but everything, even the hurts that cut and sear. There are no exceptions! Seventy times seven!

The price of forgiving is high!

Be ready to forgive others as God forgave you.

That’s why forgiveness is rare. How can you hesitate to forgive your brother or your enemy?

Forgive as freely as the Lord has forgiven you. It is a free gift. When it is postponed it is vengeance.

Forgive immediately and continually and then finally. It is God’s way. Undeserved or not.

The past is the past. No more reliving it.

You must turn from sin to God.

Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all your heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
