No Bitter Fruit

She offered the fruit she had lovingly chosen and prepared.

A snarled face, and “It’s bitter!” was the response.

She offered the sugar free ice cream she had picked up on a whim.

Three bites were consumed, and then, “No more!”

She stroked her hair and moved her fan closer. Now she settled into the recliner with her Bible. She thought , “The Bread of Life is what is needed here.”

She began reading Psalm 103.

A head turned toward her. Eyes focused on her.

No bitter fruit.

Only love.
