For I have learned, in whatever
state I am, to be content.
[Philippians 4:11]
*************************
"Did You see that RING,
Lord?"

"Yes,
My beloved.
What does this
have to do with
you,
Mein kind'er?"

"Oh, LORD!
That's the way Americans
are! We love to read about
movie STARS!"

"I AM
your
Star,
child."

"Oh, yeah!
Yeah!
But these people are much
more INTERESTING!"

[The Lord sighs. He beckons
to an angel who has just come
back from Earth. The angel's
gown is covered in gold and
diamonds. The new gown
was a birthday present; it
came with a brand-new set
of glorious wings, and
a golden halo speckled
with 20 karat blue diamonds.]

"The thing is,
Lord, how would I be able
to clean my litter BOXES?"

[The Lord patiently nods. He
fixes His gaze on the angel,
who has tried to fly into the
Throne Room but only keeps
plopping down on the Gold-Tiled
floor. The Lord asks the
angel, whose name is Carrot,
what is the matter. Carrot
replies, in a whiny, unmelodious
voice, that his new gown, new
wings, and brand-new halo are
way too heavy, and are all keeping
him from flying properly.]

"Suppose you took off the
ring to clean your kitty's litter
box, and your kitty started
playin' with it, and batted it
underneath the 'frigerator?"

"Only one litter box,
My child?"
[Carrot is pulling and yanking
on his new gown, which is
sparkling with fifteen karat
diamonds and pure gold star-
shaped balls. Carrot's new
wings are wing-tipped with
tiny diamonds and gold stars.
The Lord asks what Carrot
wants to put in his wish-bucket.
Carrot says that he wants
his old gown back, and his
old wings,and old halo, too.]

"I'm jealous, Lord. I wish
You had made all of us that
gorgeous, and rich, and
beautiful!"

[The Lord patiently nods,
and frowns. He is frowning
and nodding at
Carrot, who wants his old
carrot-colored wings,
and his old carrot-stem-
colored gauzy-gown, back. Carrot
pulls on his wild carrot-colored
straight-up, frizzy hair, and
whines that his hair doesn't
match his gown, and wings,
and halo, anymore.
He wants everything back
the way it was.]

"What are Ya doin'
up there, LORD?"

[The Lord waves a Hand
over the tearful angel,
and in a quarter of a nano-second,
everything is back the
way it was: Carrot is smiling
happily while he gazes down
on his old gauzy cotton gown,
and bird-pooped stained carrot
colored wings. Carrot's halo
is a big long carrot specially bent
and shaped into a halo, over
Carrot's red frizzy hair.
The diamonds and gold are all gone:
a little puppy, a Heinz-57 Breed,
just arrived from Earth,
bounces over to Carrot
and barks, and yips up at the smiling
angel. Carrot scoops the puppy
up in his freckled hands, and
begins kissing its little nose,
and letting the squiggling puppy
sloppily lick his freckled face.
Hugging the squirming puppy, Carrot
tells the Lord that its name
will be Diamond, and then
asks the Lord if he can go
feed Diamond, and find him
some little play toys. The Lord nods,
smiling, and then turns back
to His Earth child.]
"I AM teaching all
My children,
child,
that the grass is always
greener."
*************************
Rejoice
in
the Lord.
[Philippians 3:1]
