For
you did not receive
the spirit of bondage
again to fear,
but you received
the Spirit of
adoption
by whom we cry out,
'Abba,
Father'.
[Romans 8:15]
************************
(Noisy sound of garage
door opening.)
(Tired sigh.)
(Pull recycle-can*,
into place.)
"We studied Romans,
again, tonight,
Lord."

[GENTLE NOD.]
"I know,
child."

(Push button,
on garage-door-opener.)
(Look away.)
(Careless shrug.)
"That's GOOD!
Real SWEET!"
(Shrug.)
Cuz....like,
they TELL me,
You know
EVERYTHING!"

[PATIENT SILENCE.]
[INTENSE GAZE.]

[Glare up at the
attic-door on the
ceiling of the small garage.)
"That's a big can a'
BEANS,
AIN'T it?"

[SILENCE.]

"I bet, that's
bigger than that
real big can 'a beans,
they stock at SAMS's,
HUH?"

[QUIET VOICE.]
"Yes,
My beloved."

"WHY 'You
always calling me,
BELOVED,
LORD?"
(Glance, suspiciously,
at the light bulb,
on the roughly
painted ceiling.)
"WHY?"
(Smirk!)
"I ain't Y'ur
BELOVED!"

[SILENCE FILLED
WITH GRIEF.]

"Like.....was I
Your BELOVED....
about, eh....
SEVENTEEN years...
AGO?"

[PATIENT NOD.]

"So....WHAT were
Ya DOIN'?"
(Glare at the light
bulb, once more.)
"Just STANDIN'
there.....WATCHIN'?"

[SILENCE.]

"Cuz, like....
I don't think
Ya were THERE."

[TENDER VOICE.]
"Oh,
but, I was,
child."

"Oh....REALLY?"
(Smirk!)
"Was that,
ENTERTAINING,
for YOU?"

[SILENCE.]

"Cuz, like...
I certainly HOPE so!
At least, SOMEBODY
got some JOY,
outta it!"

[TENDER, QUIET VOICE.]
"You're very angry,
with Me,
child."

(Chuckle!)
(Smirk!)
"Ya catch on,
FAST,
DON'T Ya,
LORD?"

[GAZE FILLED WITH SORROW.]

"WHAT r'Ya
gonna DO, LORD?
SMACK me,
upside the HEAD?"

"No,
My child."

"Oh, YEAH?"
(Laugh!)
"Then,
WHAT?
I'm ANGRY,
at YA!
WHAT r'Ya
gonna DO
about IT?
(Punch a puny fist,
up at the attic-door.)
"HUH?"

[PATIENT PAUSE.]
[QUIET VOICE.]
"Love
you."
*********************
Who shall
separate us
from the
love
of Christ?
Shall tribulation,
or distress,
or persecution,
or famine,
or nakedness,
or peril,
or sword?
[Romans 8:35]

*The author hates
recycling;
but, what are you
gonna do? You live
in Rome: ya gotta
do as the Romans.
(No pun intended.)
