I just got married, my wife of only a few hours ago, handed me this sewing machine we just received as a gift. She said, "honey could you go outside, take this, and fix the problem out there. She smiled and added, I dare you!" So here I am! "Oh, those three cops behind me; so funny, they are asking that driver for his vaccination card."
A Flash-Fiction inspiration:
The prompt image and perception remind us of the present and past. The trunk of the tree represents the NOW; the top represents the past. Nature is finding a voice to explain as time goes by, things seem to thin out, situations are no longer excessive as when looking directly at them, seeing them from a distance they become surrounded; strangled/tangled with different happenings in our past life.
Is the top of the tree the beginning of life or the end? That may depend on how we look at it. Do we still have a purpose, or have we fulfilled it? Do we have regrets or content?
One day while strolling in the park and passing this tree so many times, I saw it for the first time. I wanted to climb it, so I did. When I reached the very top, after being scratched from head to toe with snarly branches and prickly bits, I looked down below from where I started. Everything below seemed so real beckoning me to hurry back. Suddenly I began to fall, down, down; I tried to grab on to the past, but could not. The force of gravity was in full force, seeing the ground getting closer and closer, shut my eyes; waited for the slam. Got up and shook off the remnants of my past, what a Wake-Up! I got up, examined my life, and vowed from that day on to find my purpose in life and fulfill it, starting with obeying the Ten Commandments of God.
Not so fast, ignore that first thought after looking at Fandango’s challenge!
After a while, the inspiration that came to me was to illustrate a comparison — comparing the supernatural with the natural.
Picture this in your mind if you can! God creates, He creates humans.
Why? He creates that we may be happy with Him forever in heaven. However, our purpose first while here on earth is to serve Him by obeying Him.
In our era today, however, man rejects God. Yet, although refusing God’s plan, they imitate it; by creating robots to serve them. We call this artificial intelligence; it is artificially wrought because it lacks emotion, cold without beauty has no goal impossible to look to its end. Fake because it does not; like the birds, flowers, and bees, the robot does not praise God. This is what humanity is evolving to, robots without a purpose in life!
How exciting! #FFFC his photo prompt; the image reminded me immediately of what I heard in school many years ago.
A picture of the Garden of Eden, described in the Bible; this is how I imagine it before Adam and Eve offended God. There are many theories about its location today, just thinking about it stirs the imagination further.
As we look at the image CLICK here;
We experience total peace, if you listen carefully you really can hear the melody of heavenly music, vision the garden perfumed with lush vegetation, forever youthful, true love, beauty and complete friendship of all the animals. Living forever without fear or disease.
“Heaven, don’t miss it for the world.”
