Make the heart
of this people
dull.
And their ears heavy,
And shut their eyes;
Lest they see
with their eyes,
And hear
with their ears,
And understand
with their heart,
And return
and be healed.
[Isaiah 6:10]
**********************
"I don't really
understand,
Lord."

[TENDER VOICE.]
"About
what,
My child?"

"About....
why, Christians
always thank You,
for Jesus,
FIRST."

[SMILE.]

"And....LAST,
too."
(Squint.)
"I just don't GET it."

[PATIENT GAZE.]

"When I WAS a kid:
I was taught.....
to be thankful, FIRST,
for bein' an AMERICAN!"

[NODDING.]

"THAT was IT:
the first,
AND the LAST!"

[VOICE FILLED WITH LOVE.]
"I know,
My child."

"THAT was IT!
To be an American,
was more...
BEAUTIFUL than.. GOLD!"
(Shout to the ceiling.)
"THAT WAS IT!
"FINIS!"

[SMILING!]

"I WAS taught....
if you woke up,
in the MORNING...
and you were in
AMERICA....
you were supposed
to go outside,
get down on the GRASS,
....and,
KISS the DIRT,
ya WALKED ON!"

[SMILING.]
[NODDING.]

"So.....Ya have to
UNDERSTAND...
I was just taught,
that was the FIRST thing...
at least,
to Jews...
comin' from,
Communist RUSSIA!"

[TENDER VOICE.]
"I understand,
My child."

(Shrugging.)
"Well.....
I'm glad,
we had this little TALK."

[NODDING.]

(Getting up,
to have a second
piece of pumpkin pie.)
(Mumbling.)
"Bein' an AMERICAN,
and havin' y'ur HEALTH:
that was about IT."

[SMILING!]

(Mumbling.)
(Squirt some whipped
cream onto pie.)
(Get out a spoon.)
"The rest of it...
was just the cherry
on TOP."

[CHUCKLE.]
"We haven't
finished our
little talk,
child."

(Squint.)
(Mouth full of pie.)
"..'bout, WHAT?"

[GAZE.]
[QUIET VOICE.]
"The
Cherry."
***********************
Therefore
the Lord Himself
will give you
a sign;
Behold,
the virgin shall
conceive
and a bear
a Son,
and shall call
His name,
Immanuel.
[Isaiah 7:14]
