In the
world
you will
have
tribulation.
[John 16:33]
*********************
"MAN, those
things are PAINFUL!"

[SILENCE.]

"Ya wake up,
in the middle
of the night....
and,
POW!"

[SILENCE.]

"YIKES!"

[PATIENT SILENCE.]

"AGGGGHHH!"

[PATIENTLY WAITING.]

"I don't know,
if they still
CALL 'EM,
that,
LORD!"

[LISTENING.]

"Ya know:
those LEG CRAMPS,
that WAKE YA UP,
in the MIDDLE
of the NIGHT?"

[PATIENT NOD.]

(Shake head.)
(Grimmacing.)
"Haven't HAD
one 'a THOSE,
in a WHILE!"

[CALM NOD.]

"UGH!
DAMN those
things,
are NASTY!"

[NOD.]

(Silence.)
"Yeah.....
I could SWEAR,
it was in the middle
of that dream,
I had."

[FIRM VOICE.]
"Don't swear,
child."

(Impatient squirm!)
"It's just an EXPRESSION,
Lord!"
(Ornery glance,
up at ceiling.)
"Ya KNOW?
You REALLY SHOULD
take some more
ESL* LESSONS!"

[PATIENT SIGH.]
[CHUCKLE.]

"Yeah....I was
having an okay-dream;
then all of sudden,
HE shows up in it:
it's raining just a little,
and he's wearing one 'a
those expensive dark SUITS,
he always wore.....
and he gets into this
horse-n-buggy thing:
like...
one 'a those things,
they have in New York City
to drive tourists, around in.....
and,
he's looking the other way,
and going the other way,
away from me,
for a romantic night,
with his lady-love......
ECH!"
(Spit.)

[CALM GAZE.]

(Spit.)
"ECH!
YUK!
ECH!
Why did HE have to
show up,
in my DREAM?
YUK!"

[PATIENT SILENCE.]

"Can't You make 'em,
go AWAY,
LORD?"

"No,
My child."

"WHY NOT?"

"Because,
they're part
of
life."
********************
These things
I have spoken
to you,
that
in Me,
you may have
peace.
In the world
you will have
tribulation;
but,
be of good cheer.
I have
overcome
the
world.
[John 16:33]
