I would rather
be a doorkeeper
in the House of my God
than dwell in the tents
of wickedness.
[Psalms 84:10]
***************************
"Lord?"

"Yes, child."

"Can I BE Your DOORKEEPER?"

[SILENCE.]

"Aw, please?
PLEASE?
PLEASE?"

[SMILE.]

"How COME, Lord?
Why not ME?"

[PATIENT SMILE.]

"What does Your doorkeeper DO,
anyhow?"

"This is a Mystery, My child."

"Aw! Come ON!
YOU know!
I'd be better at it,
than ANYBODY!
You KNOW it, Lord!"

"Tell Me why, child."

"Eh........eh, 'cuz, I
just KNOW, Lord!
I could keep a DOOR!
You KNOW I could
DO it!"

[LAUGH.]
"Yes, child.
Yes."

"Well, except for the
cats, Lord. We'd have
to figure out somethin'."

"Yes, My child."

"Why do they
do that, Lord?"

"Because I said so,
child."

"I guess before
I come up There,
I'll have to stop
at Sams. It's
the only place
where you can find
those real big
bottles of Pine Sol."

[SOLEMN NOD.]

"Now, REMEMBER, Lord!
I don't want ANY other
JOB! NOBODY else
gets that, but ME."

[PATIENT NOD.]
"Yes, My precious."

(thoughtful silence)
"Lord?"

"What is it, My child?"

"How many doors do
You HAVE, anyway?"

"Several."

"Well, I guess I
could be the TEAM leader
of the keeper
of the doors, then."

[NOD.]

"And, we'd have to have
a door meeting, every morning."

[SOLEMN NOD.]

"What should the first thing
be on our agenda, Lord?"

"Me, child.
Me."
***************************
For a day
in Thy courts
is better
than a thousand
elsewhere.
[Psalms 84:10]
