Friday 7/23/10 - "PLEASE LISTEN"




FLASH FICTION FRIDAY 55



"PLEASE LISTEN"


She had received calls from three deeply troubled friends in just as many days.
Their despair sounded hopeless.

What to do? What to say?

She said a silent prayer then mostly listened as the conversations developed.

After an hour with each they all ended at the same exact place, the need for faith, for God.

That "same exact place" where they all ended--might well be the beginning.

Prayers for you and them...and Love.

Hope=Faith=Me=On Board.

Very nicely put, simplistic and to the point.

It sounds like she offered her friends what they most needed, a shoulder to lean on, a prayer, someone to listen and, hopefully, her faith helped them see the way.

You gotta to have something to believe in. Perhaps my narrator doesn't. To tell me click here

God and Faith... The ultimate gifts of Life. Your a great teacher of how they work together. I love you. Happy Friday!

at some point we all just need someone to listen to us, the words and what those words mean to us. then sometimes, somehow, we find our own spiritual answers.

best to all who open up to you,
