I will wait upon the Lord.

They-That-Wait-Upon-The-Lord-Shall-Renew-Their-Strength-&-Mount-Up-With-Wings-Like-Eagles
Soar on wings of an eagle
Chris had never been known to be a “waiter”; instead he always threw himself headlong into many diverse adventures…here, there, here...He loved the adrenalin rush, the way it drove him. After that rush came his pride and carelessness.

Who and what Chris was then changed radically when he became a man whose greatest desire in life was to wait upon the Lord.  

Be intensediligent… …taking on the most mundane of tasks.  Wait upon the Lord…were the words running through his mind when the alarm bell rang.

“Take it, Chris!” cried out a fellow fireman.  At the clunk sound of hose thrown to him, adrenaline surged. Gripping the heavy hose tightly, Chris reminded himself ”Time to serve!”  as he raced into the blazing house.  

YouTube from movie "Fireproof". Video is about 4 min. long.

These underlined words above were provided by Delores every Wednesday as challenge to  bloggers who enjoy writing flash fiction, poems, prose, vignettes... Words are now being tossed at us by Elephant's Child  and River

  2. This is an interesting meme. It seems that it can drive a lot of creativity. Flash fiction also seems like an intersection concept.

    This was an enjoyable and creative example if flash fiction.

  7. The eagle soars high in the sky and commands respect from all, even farmers use mock eagles to protect their crops. Yes when the eagle swoops smaller birds know their place.
