My writer’s group, Writer’s on the Rock, had to cancel our December meeting due to a blizzard. So, on Facebook we each told the Christmas story in eight words. The variety and creativity was amazing and fun! As you gather over a meal today, you might like to try it too. I’d love to hear any you come up with! Mine will be at the bottom. Merry Christmas to you!

Merry Christmas (560)

The end is sure. The middle still messy.
