This is Rochelle’s sixth week hosting Friday Fictioneers – how time has flown. And another great photo prompt, from Rochelle herself. I am happy that I can add an entry this week. If you haven’t participate why not try this week.
I walked in a daze among the merry shoppers. Pass the glitter and sparkling lights to the old newsstand, buried between the elegant boutiques.
To purchase the winning lottery ticket, I prayed. I knew it was wrong. As I see it, God owes us. We were humble, we were faithful yet He sent cancer to steal everything, our precious Junior.
Behind the lottery counter a sign read, Isaiah 9:6 ‘Unto us a child is born’.
I realized we are rich with love and blessed to share this final Christmas together. I folded my last dollar to put in my pocket.
