I was watching a program today on our TV station and the host mentioned something called a 6 Word Story often associated with Earnest Hemmingway but the story he supposedly wrote shows up years before his time and in various iterations.
The 6 Word Story attributed to him is: “For Sale: Baby Shoes, Never Worn”. That gets you thinking. Another one I read on the Kelly Writers House website is : “Saved by Grace, Free at Last”. In just a handful of words it says a lot. Another one I read struck me as sad; “Only Child, but Never the Favorite”. I wondered if I could write a story with just six words and came up with; “Met God, Enjoyed Life, Came Home.”
Life has ups and downs. Plenty of things come along and get in the way, change our plans. Bring us joy; break our hearts. But, if we can just rely on God, come back to Him if we lost our way. He’ll always be there. In just 6 words, you can say; “Please Lord, Come into My Life”. He will. God is never far and will always be there for you.
Can you find time in your life to “Be Kind, Help Others, Feel Peace”? Try asking a friend or loved one to come up with a six word story or six word memoir. It gets them thinking and helps you to better understand what’s going on in their lives. In just six words, you can learn a lot about someone.
“Loved our Daughter, Miss her so”.
