A Story of...

Faith, Hope or Love. Yes, this week's contest will be a little bit more of an uplifter. I always think that because the world has already been so down in the dumps with negativity all around, we should edify our lives with words of faith, hope and love from time to time. I believe that you can definitely find a gist of these three elements in your daily life if you look close enough. The sunrise brings hope that you are alive for one more day.

For this week's contest, you can choose either one of these elements, Faith, Hope or Love or use all three in your story. It can be a true story or one that you create. As long it sticks to these three elements.

I hope that this contest will in return edify your own soul amidst all the negativity around you!

Have I Told You Lately? by @dswigle

I can barely see the moment now, just a memory of recollection. How did I miss all the signs, did it move that swiftly, but follow all the rules? There was no real sense to it, I tried to push it back, but, in my naivety, I left it unattended. Searing a place, so deep inside, arousing all my senses, pushing sense aside. Have I told you today how you set my heart afire? Do you know of this feeling, deep inside my soul? Where the warmth of your words pass on a sweet afterglow? I bask in your words, they carry me for miles, some days, I look back on them, driving me even further.
And then...

Bethany’s eyes snapped open! Oh my God what had happened? She could not wrap her mind around the situation. She heard a low roaring in her ears. Could that actually be the sound of her pulse. Like being forcefully awaken, she could not make sense of what was going on quite yet. She was choking and coughing from the overbearing smoky chemical smell. This whitish balloon like thing pushed into her face was annoying her. Yes that had to be an airbag. Now things were starting to fall into place in her foggy mind. She must have been in an...Crying! Yes oh my God that was Faith!

Explaining Faith, Hope and Love by @free-reign

I first heard this song while I was in a far off land when I was 19 years old. At first I thought it was sacrilege as it seemed to me, (a simple, God-fearing farm boy), to be mocking or making fun of God. You see, I grew up in a family that wasn’t religious and didn’t go to church. Then, when I was around 8 years old, a cousin started taking me and my older sister with her to this Baptist church, to go to “Sunday school.”

Honorable Mentions (0.5 Steem)

Of Love - Unconditional Love - Loving Kindness by @porters

When I think of love, I think how wondrous it is to have unconditional love! Often hard to find, so count yourself fortunate if you have it!

That bond that nature forms between mother and child, brings unconditional love. Something that is needed for children to thrive. Thrive and grow up to be themselves, loving and compassionate adults.

Dear Madam,

After more than 5 years, I feel that I can no longer add value to the organization as I find the company policies & commercial directions are very different from what I am used to when I first joined the organization.

Faith is the last word! by @rem-steem

The girl wakes up in fear. It was dark everywhere. She couldn't see anything. She couldn't decide how she's gonna face the reality. For a moment she thought, she's dead. But she can remember the catastrophe! How her family member died, how the world destroyed in front of her eyes. This must be real or is she dreaming? Why is she dreaming such a bad dream?

It was early September in a small, windowless cement block room with little in it other than half a dozen banks of hard plastic chairs. We the guests brought the feast, a clear plastic garbage bag cradling a careful selection of vending machine snacks in its bottom. Two garbage cans had been gussied up good for our long awaited visit: the overturned cans were both first covered with a large square of cardboard, and then topped with scratchy and stiff folded paper towels that had been carefully arranged so that their creases made a pleasing pattern on the makeshift table.
