A Snowball's Chance

“I love Sunday morning.”

Rob grabbed a second cup of coffee and walked barefoot out into the backyard. Who needed shoes when it was 74 degrees outside? It was a perfect December morning. Dana and the kids were at church and he had the whole house to himself.

He grinned as he strolled out to his dock, admiring his new boat. This is why they left Michigan for Florida. No more snow. No more ice. Nothing but balmy breezes and fishing on the bay every weekend.

Yes, Christmas was going to have a whole new meaning this year. The only white stuff they'd be shoveling was sand at the beach. He'd even planned a fishing trip for Christmas Eve day.

Dana thought maybe they'd go to church, as a family. Church? Riiiight. Rob thought. The odds of me setting foot in a church are about the same as a snowball's chance in ....

“Daddy!” his daughter's excited voice broke his reverie. Chloe, his 9-year-old, ran toward him waving a green flier. “I got the part of Mary in the pageant. You have to be there!”

Rob reluctantly accepted the paper. He removed a silver paperclip and read the attached invitation.

Just then his cell rang. It was Dan, their neighbor. “So, are we going fishing next week?”

Rob looked into his daughter's expectant eyes. “Please, Daddy. I want you to come.”

“Sorry, Dan. Can't make it. Change in the weather.”

“What's the forecast?”

“Snow.”

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Super! "Yes, Christmas was going to have a whole new meaning this year." More than he knows, I imagine. Love the title and of course the ending forecast punchline.

Even a snowball has a chance when God gets involved. Good message, good writing.
Jan Ross 16 Dec 2007
Great story line, wrapped up nice and tight. It's amazing how even a 250-word limit allows enough room to develop a story like this. Great work! :)

This daddy did a 360 in 250... I love the title and the tie in at the end... great job!
