And,
when I
looked,
behold,
a hand
was stretched
out to me,
and,
lo,
a written scroll
was in it.
[Ezekiel 2:9)
********************
"I don't GET it,
Lord."

"What,
child."

"I use all my
CREATIVITY...
to write those
little CHRISTMAS..
noshes*....and,
NOBODY reads THEM!"

[PATIENT SILENCE.]

"Uh, UH!
I'm getting more
CLICKS...
on that STUPID thing,
I wrote about
my ex-HUSBAND!"

[PATIENT NOD.]
[TURN GAZE TO ANOTHER
SIDE OF THE WORLD.]
[LISTEN TO A
SWEET-TEMPERED CHILD
IN HER CHURCH, PRACTICING
A BEAUTIFUL SOLO
FOR AN UPCOMING NEW YEAR'S EVE SERVICE.]
[GAZE BACK AT THE
WHINY, KVETCHY CHILD.]
[PATIENT SIGH.]

"Ya know what I THINK
it is, LORD?"

"What,
My precious."

"Morbid CURIOSITY!"

[PATIENT SILENCE.]

"For SURE!"

[PATIENT VOICE.]
"So,
delete it,
Mein kin'der."

(Belligerent voice.)
"WHY?
Why SHOULD I?"
(Shout.)
"I was HAVING
a BAD MOMENT!"
(Irritable squirm.)
"SO?"
(Shout.)
"I'm allowed
to VENT!"
(Point puny finger
up at the ceiling.)
"HEY! I BET
THERE'S A LOTTA
PEOPLE OUT THERE
WHO KNOW HOW
I FEEL!"

[FROWN.]
[GLANCE OVER
AT HIS RIGHT.]
[SIGH.]
[QUIET MURMURING
FROM THE RIGHT SIDE
OF THE THRONE.]
[RUMBLING MURMUR OF AN ANSWER BACK,
FROM THE LEFT SIDE.]
[GENTLE CHUCKLE FROM
THE RIGHT SIDE.]

(Suspicious squint
up at the ceiling.)
(Lean forward,
trying to hear.)
"HEY!"
(Glare up at the window rod.)
WHAT'S goin'
ON, up THERE,
LORD?"

[SMILE!]
"Just some
kibbitzing**,
My precious."

(Cranky nod.)
(One moment of silence.)
(Thoughtful squint.)
"HOW did Ya know,
what 'DELETE',
MEANT?"

"It is a
Mystery,
My child."

"Yeah;
OKAY."

[LOVING GAZE.]

"HEY......LORD?"

"Yes,
Mein kin'der."

"Can YOU HELP
me....write a
MYSTERY?"

"I am,
child.
I
AM."
*************************
And
He
spread it
before me;
and it had
writing
on the front
and
on the back,
and
there were
written
on it
words of...
woe.
[Ezekiel 2:10]
