Visa – Six Sentence Story

It didn’t require a visa to get where Pete went only a willingness that none of us had to go through that unpromising hole-in-the-wall. Perhaps some of us should have gone with him to point the way back, but we didn’t care that much what happened to him so long as whatever it was didn’t happen to us.

Today decades later and buried in memories our delightful destinations reached their dead-ends. Admittedly we knew this would happen, but we didn’t think it would happen in next to no time.

Pete told us to come along, but were we still welcome in spite of demonic reminders that we were not? Was the breath that coughed its way through our lungs evidence that there was still a bit of mercy left even for the likes of us?

  1. We think we know where we a going but it certainly can be a dead end. Jesus warning seems to validate this. “Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many.”

    Great question: “Was the breath that coughed its way through our lungs evidence that there was still a bit of mercy left even for the likes of us?”

    1. I agree with you – there is hope to the very end in spite of what the demonic might suggest. Thank you, Mimi!

      I enjoyed your tale about helping Linda get food to help her feed those feral cats. Everyone is helping everyone else.

    This one sentence sums up so much that’s happening around us.

  4. Your Six is brimming with so much it’s overflowing, Frank. Thank you for banging the gavel, lol. (pre-caffeine for “appreciate the reminder(s) to stop, be totally present in the day we are living)

    I particularly enjoyed “Today decades later and buried in memories our delightful destinations reached their dead-ends.” Totally agree – at some point, many of us are caught (often too late) asking some uncomfortable questions that our hearts and mind were whispering to us all along.

  5. vice is always attacking virtue – It is easier to believe we are doomed. But how swiftly grace brushes aside all that evil has hammered away at for years!
