Shelter – Six Sentence Story

With so many things that could go wrong but wouldn’t, Brian was worried. Survival depended on manna from heaven. Having no control over heaven he wondered, What if the manna stops?

It’s not that Brian didn’t like walking on water once he knew he wouldn’t sink. It was the actual stepping out of the boat that bothered him.

Regardless of these concerns, needless perhaps but afflicting Brian’s mind, there was no other way to the shelter.

Denise offers the word “shelter” to be used in this week’s Six Sentence Stories.

I enjoy walking, poetry and short prose as well as taking pictures with my phone.

  1. I really enjoyed this! I like the wit in “not having control over Heaven”, and can relate to “the actual stepping out of the boat that bothered him”.

  2. One of Carlos Castaneda’s characters has an expression which sounds like it is apropos, “…to act with undivided intent.”
    Part of the power of faith is that it requires, of those who would practice it, the willingness to fail.

    1. If I had remembered Life of Brian while writing this I would have picked another name for the character, but now I wonder maybe it is just as well for this to be a Brian character. Thank you!
