In that day
the Lord will whistle
for the fly
which is at the sources of the
streams of Egypt,
and for the bee...........
[Isaiah 7:18]
***************************
"Lord?"

"What?"

"What do You mean, 'what'?
What am I supposed to do?"

"'Bout what."

"Aw, LORD! You know what
I mean! Come ON!
What am I supposed to be....."

"Be what."

"Be DOING: DOING!
Come on, Lord!
Tell ME!"

"Just be, child.
Just be."

(silence)
"What.
What bee.
What was that, Lord?
Bee?
Bee what?
Justin Bee?
Who's he?
What bee?"

[LAUGH.]

"Where did You say that?
I'm too sleepy, Lord;
I don't feel like looking
up that concordance thing.
There's a picture of a kitten
on the cover - and there
aren't even any kittens in
Your Book. So THERE!"
(blow a raspberry)

"Your Lord is all patient
and slow to anger, precious."

"I think that's really good, Lord.
So, what's with the bee?
I don't understand; where
IS he? And, what did HE do?"

"Listen, child."

"I am, Lord!
But, I don't get all the time
when You talk in these riddles and
stories. I'm not that smart."

[PATIENT SMILE.]
"Listen to Me, child."

"Okay. I'm listening.
What? I don't understand
what You said about the bee,
before.
[giggle]
Or, before the bee."

[SILENCE.]

"Justin's a modern name, Lord.
I don't think there WAS a Justin
in Your Book. Huh?"

"Are you listening, child?"

"LORD! You KNOW I'm listening!
I ALWAYS listen to YOU!
You know THAT!
I always listen!
Always!"

[PATIENT SILENCE.]

"Okay.
I'm listening.
Here I am.
I'm a listener.
I am, Lord.
I'm listening.
Really."

[SILENCE]

(look up, hopefully;
waiting on Him)

[PATIENT SMILE.]
"This is what I said to you, My child:
Just Be.....
for Me."
*****************************
Then Samuel said to Saul,
Stop! I will tell you
what the Lord said to me
this night.
And he said to him,
Say on.
[1 Samuel 15:16]
