I need your help! I've entered my short story SHADOWS OF REMEMBRANCE in the Family Fiction short romance story contest. To get past the first round, I need readers (like you!) to give it a thumbs up vote. I told God that I wasn't going to write a short story unless He gave me a story that moved me and showed me something of Himself. Well, I was moved! And I hope you will be too.
You can read the story (I really think you'll enjoy it!) and vote here: http://www.familyfiction.com/short-stories/create-romance-2012/shadows-of-remembrance
To vote I'm pretty sure you will need to register your email address with Family Fiction (there's a button for that) so they know you're legitimate (and aren't voting for the same entry over and over again). I hope you'll read it and vote a "thumbs up."
Here's the opening: "The door slammed. Glass rattled. Callie didn’t care. Not anymore."
And here are some things I saw about God through the story:
--Nothing is beyond God's ability to heal.
--God never forgets love.
--Love that is true is first of all giving
--God believes in us even when we are too tired, too discouraged, too fearful to believe in Him.
--God's love never fails us.
--He can do the impossible. He loves us that much.
--Don't give up. Trust Him, follow Him, believe ... even, especially, when all hope seems gone.
--So these three remain: Faith, Hope, and Love ... but the greatest of these is love!
