They went into the ark
with Noah,
two and two of all flesh....
......and the Lord shut him in.
[Genesis 7:15-16]
***************************
"Lord?"

"Yes, My precious?"

"I can't remember;
isn't there some proverb
about closing the door -
and opening a window?
(silence)
Did YOU say that?
Or, was it..... like,
Shakespeare?
I can't remember."

"Tell Me, child."

"I'm not sure, Lord.
Maybe, Ben Franklin
said it."

"Perhaps, child."

"I've looked in a couple'a
Concordances;
I can't find anything.
(thoughtful silence)
I guess You didn't say it, Lord."

[SILENCE]

"Yeah, I know.
You're not gonna'
tell me. That's okay."

[SILENCE.]

"Actually, I think the Pilgrims said it.
Yeah, that's right.
It must be an American saying."

"What is, child?"

"Huh? Oh, 'Ya know;
that thing they say
about You opening doors,
and closing windows."

[LAUGH.]

"You know, Lord!
It goes something
like this:
'When God closes one door,
......He opens another window.'

Don't You remember?"

[SMILE.]

"Was it Teddy Roosevelt, Lord?
Didn't he invent the Teddy Bear?
You think he would, at least,
have gotten the royalties."

"Go to sleep, child."

"Yeah, but.......
Lord, that's really bothering me, now.
WHO SAID THAT?
Oy!
Do I feel OLD!"

"Time to rest, child."

"Yeah. But, first I
need to clean the litter boxes."

[NOD.]

"Unless, You wanna' send
angel Michael down,
to do 'em for me."

"No."

"Yeah, I know;
he's BUSY!
Don't You ever give
him a BREAK, Lord?"

"No. Never."

(laugh)
"Well, I guess I'm
gonna' have to look
that proverb up -
probably Wikipedia
has something about it."

"I'm sure, little one."

"'Nite, Lord."

"Good night, My beloved."
*******************************
At the end of the forty days
Noah opened the window
of the ark
which he had made,
and sent forth a raven.....
Then he sent forth
a dove.....
[Genesis 8:6-8]

Again, well-written. You're stories are enspiring in that they make me and I believe other readers want to have a close friend-to-friend relationship with Christ. Keep it up, lass.
