Wed.Words: Passion


Angel readings
Source

There were two types of people crammed in an elevator heading to fifth floor: those who smiled, nodding; and those who huffed with condemnation.

Stuffed tightly as in a jar like a jar of pickles, people were heading to the top where a conference on “Passion for Christ” was being held.  A grandmother holding her grandson’s hand was also attending.  The huffing group glared at her tattoo of an angel wrapping up her arm.


In actuality only a few held that passion for Christ, Grandmother being one of them.


The above underlined words were given as an encouragement to writers to take a leap at different genre. The Wed Word meme was started by Delores who is now writing her own blog, and handing off the word challenge to other bloggers.  Currently, Elephant's Child is providing words to encourage writers to write. Post your own Wed Word take in her comment section, or at your own site, inviting other bloggers to read.

  1. Judgements are so often based on misapprehensions aren't they?
    Hooray for the granny with the tatts.

    1. Thanks, Lynda. Tattoos in themselves are an art of their own.

  4. People are too quick to judge other people with tattoos and piercings. I say: "Go granny!" I almost got a tat when I was young, but I chickened out. :)

    1. My late mother wanted us to get a tattoo when she was about 82, the deal fell through.

  5. I agree other people are too quick to judge tattooed people, thankfully, here in Adelaide a lot of places don't seem to mind. Three of my kids have multiple tattoos and all have steady jobs they've held for years.
    I don't like the thought of a tightly packed elevator, I'd be taking the stairs.

    1. Have been pickle jar elevators many times. You are right to take the stairs, but to the 5th floor?

    2. Yes. I may take a while, but I'll feel better for it. Crammed elevators make me panic sweat.

  6. Light hearted angels skip and spring their way forth because they don't have heavy hearts. Im not very with angels myself.

    1. Angels are around us the Bible says. I believe that. You probably have a few or more.

  7. My daughter has a grandma with tattoos. Her children will, too. I don't think there are any angels involved in either case.

    1. Once I was behind an old woman with a rose tattoo around her upper arm. It was a bet stretched and saggy, faded. But I rejoiced in her stages of life.

  8. I hope this finds you and yours doing well. May we display your header on our new site directory? As it is now, the site title (linked back to its home page) is listed, and we think displaying the header will attract more attention. In any event, we hope you will come by and see what is going on at SiteHoundSniffs.com.

  9. Being judgmental based on physical things (tattoos for example) is one of the worst qualities. I make it a habit to never judge anyone (though I am sure I am guilty of subconsciously judging...)

    1. That is one of the worst qualities one can possess. Personally, I find the artistic value of tattoos are awesome. It is a painting in its own medium.

  10. Excellent! And what a perfect picture for your story.

  11. People are often too quick to judge!
