I’ve got too many damn universes in my garage.
“Good” ones complete with halos and dragon slayers, “bad” ones with a goatee on every man (and woman), and everything in between.
Each morning with my coffee I spin off a new one, but I can’t seem to do it right. Oh they’ve got villains, heroes, delight and despair, and rising and overcoming adversity. But there’s just one thing I can never muster: stability. Constancy. Reliability.
They tilt, fracture, and spin out in a matter of days or hours, until everything is an unrecognizable mess of jumbled neutrons.
They told me I couldn’t play God.
They were right.
“He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.” Colossians 1:17.
This was a “first sentence” prompt taken from a conversation with Jon and some friends over facebook.
