MMC 9/27/15

Hello everybody! Once again I will be participating in the Monday Minute Challenge! I hope you all enjoy my short story and have a lovely day. :)

My palms started to sweat as I dialed his number at the phone booth, praying that the number he gave me was right. The phone rang, once, twice.

“Hello.” A raspy voice said over the phone. I froze a moment.

“I..I uh..Is Gabriel there?” I managed to ask.

The voice started to say something else, then paused and said, “One moment please.”

I sighed. Feeling relieved that I hadn’t called the wrong number. I could hear the man’s echoing footsteps through the receiver. My heart pounded to the rhythm of it. Thump, thump, thump.

A familiar voice came on the phone.

“Angela, is that you?”

“Yes, it’s me Gabriel!” I said through happy tears. It was so good to hear my brother’s voice. It had changed since the last time we had talked, but it was still his.

I could just imagine his smile in my mind as he said, “I am so glad you called.” Then he said in a more hushed voice. “Meet me at the bus station on Thursday.”

“Does this mean…” I began to ask.

“Yes. It does!” he answered. “We are going to run away on Thursday the….” He paused, he was probably looking at the calendar I gave him the last time we meet. “The 28th.” He finished.

“Oh that’s wonderful Gabriel!” I said excitedly. Then suddenly I heard a scream, a loud thump and then the sound of the phone being hung up.

Hard Times

Hey everybody! A couple days ago I was looking through some of my posts on a group blog I am apart of, Girls Living for Gods Glory, and I found a post, and I read it and really liked it! So, I thought I would share it with you all today. :) I hope you enjoy reading it and have a lovely day!

Yep, hard times. We all go through them. Have you all ever thought about what it would be like if you had a life that you went through no pain or suffering at all? I did a couple weeks ago when we were talking about it at my Youth Group. It would be boring, and we wouldn’t be able to grow a stronger relationship with God. When we go through hard times we lean on God, and talk to him about what we are going through which makes our relationship with him stronger. I know that it stinks and sometimes we question God, ‘Why are these things happening?’ ‘What have I done to deserve this?’ I know that we all probably ask those questions. But, remember God does things and puts certain people in your life for a purpose. We might not know what that purpose is but trust me, God has it all under control. If you are going through a hard time talk to God about how you feel and lean on him and you will grow closer to him. Here are some bible verses that can help you.
And call upon me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify me. Pslams 50:15
I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. Romans 8:18
And here is a quote I found that I really liked!
Sometimes God uses pain to inspect us, correct us, direct us, and perfect us.

MMC 9/1/15

She held the delicate lily in her hand and twirled it around. The scent of it drifted on the wind into her nose. The smell of it reminded her of him. She could remember the night he came to see her. His sword resting on his side, his smile lighting up the dark. His hair, how it swept gently across his forehead. She smiled at the thought of him. Then, she remembered the night the guards came. She held the lily tighter in her hand. She could see them, all clearly in her mind now taking him away. All the horrible memories came back. All the pain she tried to hide for so long came back. She threw the lily down. Her eyes swelled with tears, and she remembered the night she tried to sneak through the dungeons to see him. She felt her heart pounding again, afraid the guards would catch her. She could feel the key she held tightly in her hand, tiptoeing silently trying not to be heard.  She would never see him again. And it hurt! It was a pain she had never felt before, a pain that she couldn’t describe. She picked up the lily and clenched it tight, pressing it against her chest and whispered, “I will never forget you.”
