Brother to Brother – A Very Short Story on Brotherly Love

morning

A new day had begun.  Little brother Maximus has not yet learned how to turn the forces of cold and hot in the proper mixture to ignite a shower of morning refreshment upon him.   A new day had dawned and bless the Lord oh my soul, big brother Isaac led him through and prepared a nice shower to help little brother start the morning.

The day carried on and evening came.  Mom was exhausted and called it a night early. Boys stayed up to watch a movie together. Mom awoke to the sound of footsteps down the dark hall. Both boys being careful not to awaken mom and dad.  Little brother leading quietly,  into a bedroom with instructions to close the door.  Big brother followed.

Curious mom  jumped out of bed and placed an ear pried to the outside of their door.

Little brother Maximus was leading big brother Isaac in a prayer.  It’s the routine for mom to do each night.  He was stepping in and making sure it happened.  The sweetest prayer, covering over our family and friends with his big brother already tucked in bed (mom could see through the crack) praying along by his side.  In Jesus Name, Amen.

Mom darted back to bed, tucked inside her own covers, hearing them settle in their own beds now, with a good night.  Smiling, and a tear in her eye, she quietly whispered “Thank you God”.

“Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves.” Romans 12:10

The sun comes up it’s a new day dawning

it’s time to sing Your song again

whatever may pass and whatever lies before me

let me be singing when the evening comes!

Bless the Lord Oh my soul…..
