Edge – Six Sentence Story

On one side of the path there was a perilous, downward sloping edge. He walked this mountain trail to reach home.

He crawled when winds blew to avoid being thrown into the abyss. When rainstorms poured he rested knowing those dark clouds would soon move on.

When grisly goats, demonic dragons or other ugly forms of monstrous nonsense blocked his way he told them where to go. Only the foolish hesitated to obey.


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

Proverbs 16:7 When a man’s ways please the Lord, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him.” (KJV)
