And
when the
disciples
saw Him
walking on
the sea,
they were
troubled,
saying,
'It is a ghost!'
[Matthew 14:26]
***********************
"That's a
very romantic
scene,
LORD."

[QUIET VOICE.]
"Which one,
My child."

(Impatient sigh.)
"THAT one!
The one about
JESUS!
Walking,
on the WATER!"

[SILENCE.]

"Yeah;
you can just
picture it:
the windy night,
and all;
maybe, the
moon is shining
through the
storm clouds...
and the disciples'
boat is thrashing
about....
to and
fro."

[SILENCE.]

"It's just very ROMANTIC,
that's all."

[NOD.]

"And,
my life
ran out of
ROMANCE....
a long time
ago."

[GAZE.]

"So,
maybe
that's why
the idea
of JESUS,
appeals
so much,
to me."

[GENTLE BREATH.]
[TOUCH A
DEAD AUTUMN
LEAF,
FALLING
FROM A TREE,
IN BEDFORD,
PENNSYLVANIA.]

"He's a very
Romantic Story,
is all,
Lord."

[SILENCE.]

(Shrug.)
(Look away.)
"Even if,
He's... not
TRUE."

[SORROWFUL GLANCE.]

"Well,
HOW do
I KNOW,
if...
He's TRUE?"
(Shrug.)
"After all,
nobody in
my FAMILY,
BELIEVES Him!"

"Who is
your family,
child?"

(Grimmace!)
(Laugh!)
"THAT'S
a HILL 'a beans,
ain't it?"
(Laugh!)
"I got family...
and EX-family....
all the OVER,
the PLACE!"

[NOD.]
"But,
Who is your
family,
little one?"

(Laugh!)
"There's just
a lotta PAIN,
there, LORD!
Not much
ROMANCE!"

[PATIENT NOD.]
"Who is
your family,
My beloved?"

(Shrug.)
(Look away.)
(Eyes filled
with tears.)

[TENDER WHISPER.]
"I AM.
I,
am
your
Family."
*********************
O you
of little faith,
why
did you
doubt?
[Matthew 14:31]
