We know that in everything
God works for good,
with those who love Him,
who are called according
to His purpose.
[Romans 8:28]
*************************
"Lord?"

[SILENCE.]

"I saw somebody carrying
that book again, today."

"My Book, child?"

"Uh, uh. The one about
being driven, and all."

"Yes, child."

"I've read some parts
of it, Lord."

[NOD.]

"I would have finished it -
maybe -
if it weren't for the
hood incident."

"What hood, child."

"I don't know if that's
what it's called.
You know: the top
part of the car."

"I understand, child."

"Yeah, Lord! I was really
upset about it!"

"Were you, child?"

"Yeah, I guess."

[SMILE.]

"I'm such a klutz.
I can't believe I did that."

[NOD.]

"Leaving it on the top
of my car -
and then, forgetting
about it."

[SOLEMN NOD.]

"I guess it ended up
in the church parking lot,
somewhere."

[SILENCE.]

"When I realized what
I had done, I only
hoped that some
grateful soul picked
it up."

[SILENCE.]

"Only YOU know what
really happened to it, Lord."

"Yes, child."

"I was having trouble with
it, to start with. I guess
it's good that somebody
else got a hold of it."

[SILENCE]

"Maybe, THAT was
ANOTHER purpose of
Yours', Lord! Hey!
I didn't even THINK of THAT!"

"It is a mystery, child."

(silence)
"I really didn't like the book, Lord."

"I know, My child."

"There was somethin' in there
about nonbelievers going to -
YOU know -
and, that's hard for me;
what with my parents,
and all."

[SILENCE.]

"I thought to myself,
'So, what about the Jews?
What happens to THEM?',
and stuff like that.
That part kinda' turned
me off."

[SILENCE.]

"To be honest,
it got me kinda' mad.
Maybe, that's why
I accidentally left
it on top of my car."

"Everything is possible, child."

"Yeah; well, it also
made life appear -
eh, too well-organized."

[SILENCE.]

"Life isn't like that;
it's messy, and
horrifying,
and very joyful,
and terribly painful,
and absurd,
and sad.........
and then,
perhaps,
joyful, again."

[PATIENT SILENCE.]

"You can't just put
everything that
happens into a little
box, like that.
It isn't.....
You know.....REAL."

"No, child?"

"Uh, uh.
I HAVE lived over
half a century;
I do know SOMETHING
about it, Lord."

"I see."

"Yeah.
I guess You do, Lord.
(silence)
Why are folks always
tryin' to do that:
match everything
goin' on in their lives,
with YOUR agenda?"

[SILENCE.]

"I mean, it's EXHAUSTING.
I've done it........
so, I KNOW."

"Yes, child."

"Who knows WHAT
Your purpose is,
day to day, for
every human being, anyhow?
Maybe, it's just to try to
get everybody to
laugh, at least once
a day.
(smile)
Who KNOWS?"

"Perhaps, My precious."

"I do think that was
Your purpose for
Charles Schultz,
Lord."

"What was that, child."

"To make us all laugh,
at least once a day."

[SMILE.]
**************************
....for I am God,
and there is no other;
I am God,
and there is none like Me,
declaring the end
from the beginning
and from ancient times
things not yet done,
.....I will accomplish
all My purpose......
[Isaiah 46:9-10]
