Eph 2: 1-10 Lenten day 26

Sins assured our death
Sitting in the heavenlies
We were made alive

To show riches of His grace
His kindness through Jesus Christ

His grace saves us
It’s the accepted gift of God
Not by our good works

We are His workmanship and
We are ordained for good works

I hope this inspires you to check
the scripture for yourself.

This is not supposed to replace
the Word of God; it’s only my
interpretation.

Lost, Trifecta Challenge

Dust coats the farmer’s nostrils and a single tear wells up and overflows with grief.  He remembers the words that his father said, “The sun and the rain will please or cause pain.”

This weekend’s http://www.trifecta.com challenge is to write a story entitled ‘Lost’ in exactly 33 words. The word ‘lost’ can only appear in the title, not your 33 words. Any reference to the TV show could result in another visit to see the editors in the Trifecta offices.

Lost

“Don’t say it.”

“Say what?”

“What you’re thinking.”

“Man, my feet hurt, it is cold and dark out here and I got to take a shit and you want to play guessing games?”

A Lady and a Porter, Trifecta Challenge

I hate when it happens.
My thoughts appear so muddled
I try and write things out                                             
But becoming more befuddled

I need some brand new cards
At my empty table
Would someone please shuffle
Anyone who’s able

A lady and a porter
Stepped into the saloon
She took the table near by
This hot and dusty June

The right one came along
Don’t go on without me
Let me touch your golden hair
While I plead upon my knees

Can’t waste a moment now
Expressed my keen interest
Paid for the ladies drink
This beautiful tourist

I need a brand new player
Come sit at my table
I’ll allow you the shuffle
You do look quite able

Porter thanked me for the drink
But said no to the game
No common vulgar man
Can even know her name
