Now,
Laban had two daughters:
....Leah,
and....Rachel.
[Genesis 29:16]
************************
"My sister's MAD at me,
LORD."

[CALM NOD.]
[GAZE AT THE MOON.]

"Yeah;
she doesn't like me
sending my WRITING,
to her."

[NOD.]
[GAZE AT A TREE
GROWING, IN THE
MIDDLE OF A LITTLE
FRONT LAWN,
IN SAN ANTONIO,
TEXAS.]

"She says:
STOP SENDING YOUR
RELIGIOUS ARTICLES
TO ME!
(Laugh!)
"RELIGIOUS?"
(Chuckle!)
"The last time,
I wrote....
I was a GUMBALL!"

[SOLEMN NOD.]
"Yes,
child."
[PATIENT GAZE.]

"A GUMBALL!"
(Smirk up at ceiling.)
(Yell.)
"What was so RELIGIOUS,
about THAT?"

[PATIENT GAZE.]

"I never WAS
religious!"
(Grimmace!)
"Never WAS.
I hated HEBREW school!
ECH!"

[PATIENTLY WATCHING
THE TRAFFIC ON IH10.]

"You know THAT,
Lord! When's the
last time,
You ever saw me RELIGIOUS?"
(Grimmace!)
"I don't even LIKE......
HOLIDAYS!"
(Thoughtful squint.)
"Especially,
the JEWISH ONES!"

[NOD.]
[SLIGHT FROWN.]
[LISTEN TO MUSIC
PLAYING, ON SOMEBODY'S
CAR RADIO, ON IH10 EAST.]

(Stare up at ceiling.)
"Lord?
Are You LISTENING?
This is really IMPORTANT!"

[CALM NOD.]
"Yes,
My kin'der."

"Am I BORING YOU?"

[CHUCKLE.]
"No."

"Well.....You know
my writing's not RELIGIOUS!"

[PATIENT NOD.]
[SIGH.]

"It's got nothin'
to DO,
with RELIGION!
Where'd she get THAT,
FROM?"

"Me,
child."

"Yeah;
but, YOU know why
I'm talkin' to YOU!"

[SOLEMN NOD.]

"I can't talk to...
my PARENTS!"
(Shrug.)
"And......"
(Shrug.)
"Y'ur the CLOSEST one...
I GOT to 'em!"

[TENDER GAZE.]
"Yes,
child.
I am
the Closest One."
*************************
Now it happened
as they went
that He entered a certain village;
and a certain woman named Martha
welcomed Him into her house.
And she had a sister
called Mary,
who also sat at Jesus' feet
and heard
His word.
[Luke 10:38-39]
