He's Got The Whole World...


Welcome to Jenny Matlock's Saturday Centus.  Yes, I know, it's Wednesday...cut me some slack, it's been a busy week!  Saturday Centus is a writing adventure that my friend, Jenny, extends to loyal followers and friends who love to write...usually on Saturday mornings...when our thinking caps are in the hamper and we need a little prompt! This week's prompt is the above picture.  We have been challenged to write 104 words in a story, prose or poetry and it should be in the first person.  My first light bulb moment was a song we used to sing (many decades ago) in Sunday School about having "the whole world in his hands."  My story (which is a little over 100 words...sorry I could not help myself as my research assistants were overflowing with ideas) follows from the viewpoint of my friend, Pete, the young man in the picture.

Somebody gave me this earth ball and said I had to find out how to make a happy world. Here's what some of my friends told me.

LH said the world would be "ran by mommies" and that we would all eat chocolate, and when she grows up she will take care of animals, especially frog animals!

JS said "God would take charge of the world.  I would play with all the toys and eat lots of mac and cheese.  Oh, and we would love everybody!

NT stated that "the world would be better if all of the countries had the same freedom we have.  We would send people to go talk to the kings or someone who will listen so we won't have world war and can live in peace."

Out of the mouths of babes....

Thanks for stopping by today!  Please visit Jenny's blog by clicking on the logo below.  I'm sure that you will find some very entertaining reads from some of my friends!

This isn't late.

And it is wonderful.

And I'm late.

I'm trying to pick which one of these is my favorite philosophy, but I love them all!
