Five Minute Friday – Here is a Short Fictitious short story, In Five Minutes!



She kicks water across the shallow puddle of water – Her feet bare are glossy, and the hem of her dress is damp from rain.


Twirling, she leans her head back and welcomes the moisture to soak into the dark blonde ringlets cascading down her back.  To her, this was worship, to dance in the rain, without concern about appearance, or proper form, or singing off key.


She pretends she is a ballerina and twirls again then raised one hand and leaps.


It is uncomfortable for her to tell other women, but this rain dancer can feel God smiling at her as she dances for him in the rain.  This one, being washed by the dew of heaven, knows that He finds her beautiful, clever, and graceful.


Comfort comes to women, and they believe they are beautiful, when they know someone loves them and when they realize that the One is all they need.
