As a raindrop in the ocean

As a ripple in the sea

So is my understanding

Of what God’s love is to me.


He would sacrifice his Son for me?

That is inconceivable,

Beyond what is believable

It’s an awesome mystery!


My mind cannot comprehend

That I can call this God my Friend.


This is my first submission for Rochelle’s 100 word story that is not exactly 100 words, but I have noticed some others who interpret the instructions as 100 words or less so mine is less today. Some of you know I have been on a “work break” for almost two weeks so I wanted to get back in with a recognition of my Friend God. Amazing. Hope my friends on the “frog” will come see me again soon.

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

    Liberating isn’t it, when you discover you can write less than 100?

    • oneta hayes says:

      Yes, on occasion but I like the challenge of writing exactly 100 words. Calls on me to change a word here and there. I generally come up with something I like better than that with which I started. Both? That’s good.

    Good post! I just commented back to you on my post how writing short stories can be hard. I have tried the 100 word stories before ,.but it doesn’t work. I like to “talk” too much! LOL! 😄

    Welcome back Oneta.
    Hope you are well rested and rejuvenated.
    Take care and stay safe.
    Not sure what these Delta variant and now the new one, Lambda, have in store for us.

    • oneta hayes says:

      Kind welcome back. Thank you. I hadn’t heard of the Lambda. My household is trying to build immunities and we have cut way back on going out. We just ordered lunch to be picked up. But it will have been handled by six or eight people by the time it gets to us. I live in peace, however. Hope the best for you.
