Rambunctious – Six Sentence Story

Niko had not one but six godmothers carefully selected by his father and mother. He had just as many godfathers, too, because those godmothers were all happily married even though their marriages might have suffered through times when the husband, the wife, or usually both, were a bit rambunctious.

Being an infant Niko didn’t remember the oil anointing at his dedication, but now with the battles raging about them he gave thanks for all of his extended family who faithfully showed him by their examples the narrow path all those years. As the men and women who stood by him fell he remained fearless. He prayed that all would find their way home.

When Niko himself found his way home his mother and all those godmothers along with his father and all those godfathers rushed to welcome him laughing and singing like joyfully rambunctious children eagerly showing him by their example the dance of praise before the Lord.


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

  1. Wow! 6 God fathers and God mothers. No wonder he is delighted and ” gave thanks for all of his extended family who faithfully showed him by their examples the narrow path all those years. ”

    May we all have faithful relatives who keep us on the narrow path.

    Blessings.

  2. Love this so much Frank! This reminded me of yesterday’s fellowship and pastoral discussion I had with a Christian yesterday who went from woke to being a Christian…and how the legacy of his dad and mom planted important seeds for his later repentance. Good one, very good one Frank
