I crept upstairs. Heart pounding. Hands sweating. Home alone. It startled me. A heavy thud. A murderer? Rapist? Robber? But something pushed me to see, to know, to find out. What was it?  Cautiously I peered into the bedroom - Relief. Smiled - a plaque, “Be still and know” - had fallen from the wall.

"Be still and know" ~ perfect touch to the anxiety those unknown noises can stir. I relaxed myself after seeing it was just a plaque. Nicely done.

My 55 is posted: Flash 55 ~ Awakening

The simplest things can give us a fright, can't they? Nicely done.

I love it. I can so relate to that story but its way to long to mention here...but let's just say it involves flash backs of psycho, a shower and a falling picture. God must get a chuckle out of us sometimes.
