And Suddenly…A Stick

I was attacked by a ninja on Monday.

Chuck Norris and I were sparing.

There was a pack of stick wielding thugs.

A random stick impaled me.

I stepped on a stick on Monday.


While this may seem ordinary to you, as it was to me on Sunday, I am now otherwise informed. By someone with “M.D.” after his name, no less.


You see, sticks apparently have it out for the human race. Not only are they pretend guns and swords, make slingshots or prop up boxes to catch heffalumps and woozles, they have a knack to create havoc with one’s immunity.


And while I searched high and low for a Bible verse about sticks, mostly I laid around. Or, if you’re good friends with the thesaurus, I lounged. Doctor’s orders.


Lounging is overrated for someone that likes to be busy. That’s me. And, unfortunately, the creative juices don’t just flow because I’m at a physical stand still. When I stopped and considered, I now see the things I’ve learned:

  1. God gets my attention in inventive and odd ways.
  2. God created that poor stick. I crushed that little stick’s soul.
  3. I wish the story had ninjas or Chuck Norris.
  4. Even binge watching can get boring.
  5. God’s sense of humor was apparent by the angle of that stick.
  6. Really, really wish ninjas were involved.


So once again, it’s a one post week and I apologize. To all six of you…


About sarahb5149

When tasked with how to describe myself, I get quiet, leading people to believe that I am trying to come up with something deep and meaningful. In fact, I am trying to decide which to display without confusing them. I'm a Christian. And that doesn't mean that I simply say it - I love the Lord and have figured out over the years that He knows what He's doing, even when I am stomping my feet or looking at Him like I have no clue what is going on (*hint* it happens more than I'd care to admit). Writing has been a passion of mine since I was a wee lil' thing; I kept my first poem in all of it's stammering, unevenness. Wife and mom, daughter and sister, aunt and Sunday School teacher, I adore the roles that God has given me. A bit of a sci-fi nerd, geek and self proclaimed dork, there isn't much that I won't try at least once...unless it involves mayonnaise because that stuff is just gross. View all posts by sarahb5149
