Marble Not!

“Bobby’s sinnin’ ” Jimmy whined to his mom,“he’s out there shootin’ marbles with Doug, and he’s not supposed to be, cause the Bible says marble not!”

“What?” came her exhausted reply.

The stunned look on his mothers’ face demanded an explanation.

“The Bible says marble not in John 3:13; Miss Rogers told us that in Sunday School last week.”

Exasperated, his mom sighed, “Go get the Bible, and show me where.”

“Oh,” whispered Bobby, “it says marvel not; mommy what does marvel mean.”

Winkin, Blinkin, and Nod

It was obvious they were stoned.

Blitzed, wasted, baked if you will.

They thought everyone was oblivious to their state.

Having been there before, it was quite a simple deduction for me.

Seemingly, the rest of the crowd was oblivious.

In My Place

I stood there watching, weeping, wondering – oblivious to the crowd. Oh, I could hear them jeering, riling, their faces twisted in anger and hate. But their jeers, cheers, and curses meant nothing. I told myself I’d never understand, never know why, He took my place.

He was my substitute there on that hill. It  should have been me, He was in my place. SSS 2

Only One Choice

His hands trembled as he opened the door for her; she was nervous too.

As they sat at the table and the waiter welcomed them with chatter and the specials, he calmed a bit.

This was it, this was the night, he was sure he’d have the nerve to ask.

And she knew.

He gazed at her over the menu and knew there was only one thing he wanted; he couldn’t stop himself; he couldn’t wait.

“Marry me!” he said.
