Young, innocent and full of life. This was going to be her greatest adventure yet. No rules, no pain, no boundaries…
Nothing stood between her and her dreams. Nothing but her bright green door and the pure white drapes adorning her brave unknowing soul…
Who could blame her? For she had built her house up in the clouds. Nice and clean and seeming strong, however, her house was destined to fall…
The green paint she so loved was beginning to fade, as her adventure was nearing it’s end. The drapes began to turn yellow and shred- she soon wondered what she’d done wrong.
Raging storms brewed and her windows grew dark- as she watched her own youth fade away. The bright paint was all gone and all that was left was a rugged and raw window frame.
A very large storm caused her house to crash down. All that was left was a wreckage- a mess. She lifted herself from the wreckage beneath her. Scoffers stood by and they pointed and laughed: “That’s what she gets for painting her door green and building her house in the clouds!”
Her head was spinning. Her dreams had been crushed; her innocence beaten away. But as her head cleared, she heard a kind voice- calling her name from above.
Come here, my dear dreamer, you’re stronger than ever! Let’s build a new house; this time not on your own. We will build a grand door and your drapes will be new. The foundation won’t crack and the storms won’t do damage.
Her new paint would be golden; it would last her forever.
The adventure resumed, however, not as before. Her new house, amazingly planned and designed- by her one and only true builder!
Building on a Solid Foundation
24 “Anyone who listens to my teaching and follows it is wise, like a person who builds a house on solid rock. 25 Though the rain comes in torrents and the floodwaters rise and the winds beat against that house, it won’t collapse because it is built on bedrock. 26 But anyone who hears my teaching and doesn’t obey it is foolish, like a person who builds a house on sand. 27 When the rains and floods come and the winds beat against that house, it will collapse with a mighty crash.”
Note: This is my assignment for Day 4 of the WordPress Writing 101 Course- Choose a picture from the (suggested) gallery and use it as a writing prompt. I did my best- the point of this class (for me) is to reestablish a solid writing habit and improve upon my writing ability. I am open to extremely positive feedback….haha, Just kidding! I am open to any and all constructive feedback.
