It has been awhile since I participated, but Kat Myrman has continued her weekly Twittering Tales. She provides a photo and we write a story or poem with 140 characters or less. These are great fun and sometimes very challenging. You are welcome to check it out and join in. I have three stories, each slightly different, but all involve life adventures for the characters. You can use your own imagination to fill in the details for each story. Adventures await!
No Turning Back
No turning back now
We said our goodbyes and left
Never to return
Oh, how they pleaded
The danger will be too great
Our minds were made up
A SAD DEPARTURE
The lights of the town faded as we pulled farther away.
The fire had destroyed everything. With tears in our eyes we drove into the unknown.
A NEW ADVENTURE
Everyone cheered and wished us well. Leaving the city
behind us, we headed out for the adventure of a lifetime! What secrets would we find?
LIFE IS FULL OF ADVENTURES
We may not be facing a big move or a trip to a remote village or an extended stay away from home, but there is adventure on this journey of life. There is often a mixture of joy and pain, excitement, disappointment, peace, anxiety, and I could go on.
Maybe you are in a difficult time right now, and you don’t know where the road will lead. You need to know you are not alone. Because life is full of surprises, we need to walk alongside each other and look for ways to help. We were not meant to live in isolation but in community.
Whatever adventure we find as we travel through our daily lives, we need to remember that God is with us, and he knows the way. He sometimes works behind the scenes, but to us it may seem he has deserted us. Even if we don’t sense his Presence, we can still cry out in our pain.
Your love, Lord, reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness to the skies.
Your righteousness is like the highest mountains, your justice like the great deep.
You, Lord, preserve both people and animals.
How priceless is your unfailing love, O God!
People take refuge in the shadow of your wings. They feast on the abundance of your house; you give them drink from your river of delights.
For with you is the fountain of life; in your light we see light.
