The Poison Cup - Part I

The Poison Cup 

There once was a girl and her name was Molly Louisa but her folks just called her Molly. Well Molly was sick. Ah now, don't get visions of the extreme or the unthinkable. She, let us say, had the common cold. And she had to have medicine. You know the medicine that is suppose to be cherry flavor but instead is awful heaven-knows-what-flavor? Yep, that stuff. 

"Do I have too Daddy?" whined Molly to her father. "It tastes so awful" (Now if you didn't believe me earlier I sure hope you now do. All kids think this stuff is nasty. ALL.)

"Well sweetheart," replied her father, "if you would like to get better faster you had better take it."

That did the trick! Molly was an active girl and hated being stuck indoors for longer than she had to. After gagging the medicine down she looked at her father with her big brown eyes and ask "How can something so terrible make me well?"

Her father never got to answer because at that exact moment the door bell rang. Down the stairs flew Molly and straight into the arms of her grandfather.(His name was Walter for those of you that have to know every thing there is to know about a character).

"How are you Miss Molly?" ask her grandfather. "Better?"

After being told that she was improving and being welcomed in, he heard all about the medicine, which was in the foremost of Molly's attention. Upon hearing all about it grandfather ask her a most peculiar question,"Have you ever heard of any other bad thing that turned out to be good?"

Molly thought for a moment and then responded, "Well, there is the story of Joseph and his brothers and the incident of Bathsheba and David.......Oh! And the death and resurrection of Jesus!"

"Well you remember quite a lot," praised Grandfather.   "On that note, I think I shall tell you a story."

And with that he began...

There once was a Good King and the Good King ruled over a plentiful land. All his subjects he called children and they lived in the land. It was a small land to be sure.  Some called it a park or a magnificent garden. And his children loved their King and his Blessed Son. They often walk all together in a great group. But no one pushed or shoved for their hearts were good and they were content. In this, let us call it a park, there was a fountain system that was connected all across the park.   Each fountain was pure and had a different quality, all but one.

To be continued....

Blogging Thoughts

All right!!!!! Ya'll (yes I did  just say "ya'll") I am going to be honest here......

I don't like blogging

Yep I said it, "I don't like blogging!"

I have found that having to do things daily or so does not work with me. Bottom line, I get bored. But........

I have recently found an idea that I would like to try. I want to do a story tellers blog. One where I will post a story and we will see what happens. BUT....this will take time so the changes will come soon but not overnight.

Hope you have a little patience.

Here is the exciting part!!!!  If you have a beyond, brilliant story idea, please leave me a comment.  I will see what I can do..........

Off to burn the midnight oil.........well actually the 10 o'clock pm oil.... You get the gist.  I do have a bed time after all.
