Microfiction Monday - 20100726

Welcome to Microfiction Monday, 
where a picture paints 140 characters, or even fewer.


How is it that I am chosen among so many?  What will the future hold?  What wonders to behold!

I am the servant of the Lord; let it be to me according to His word.

Your Turn!  

About Microfiction Monday
Microfiction means the shortest of short stories. Think Aesop's fables, comic strips, or even jokes: complete stories that can be told in under a minute. For this game, the limit is a tweetable 140 characters or fewer. 

Hate counting letters and spaces? Try Design 215's character counter, which will count for you as you type. Microsoft Word will count for you too, of course, as part of its word count feature under the 'Review' tab.
Photos will be from my own archives; illustrations are from Dover Publications' free clipart sample newsletter.

And finally, why 140? A whole new fiction market has arisen via mobile phone texting and Twitter, who limits 'tweets' to 140 characters including spaces and punctuation. It's fast, it's fiction, it's fun.

I love it! The Magnificat -- and lending credence to the argument that Mary & Joseph DID have other children so that Jesus DID have earthly brothers.

How interesting that I immediately thought of greeks/romans and not biblically. It's quite beautiful
