Short Story by Bunnie Bolender:
Out of This World
He came down in a beam of light. At first I could not tell there was even someone there,
The light was so bright. There was this golden shimmering light that woke me from my sleep.
And then I heard his voice. It was magnificent, deep, resonant. It touched a chord in my
Heart, in my very soul. The sound of it was so persuasive. He spoke my name.
Then when my eyes became accustomed to the brilliance of his illumination, I saw him.
He was beautiful beyond all comprehension. He was tall, beautiful brown hair,
Unblemished complexion, smooth, tanned skin, dressed in flowing robes. I was totally in
Awe of him I was in his power.
He asked nothing o me but that I believe.
