And God said
Let the waters
bring forth swarms
of living creatures,
and let birds fly
above the earth
across
the firmament
of the heavens.
[Genesis 1:20]
**************************
"LORD?
LORD?
Is it true You don't
let any ANIMALS
int'a HEAVEN?
Cuz, they don't
have any SOULS?
Is THAT TRUE?"

[SILENCE.]

"LORD!
LORD!
LORD! That's what
I HEARD!
In BIBLE CLASS TONIGHT!
(Turn angry face up to air conditioning vent.)
Hey, LOOOOORD........!
I KNOW You're UP THERE!"


[SILENCE.]

"LORD!
I KNOW Y'UR up THERE!
Come ON!
I gotta TALK!
Come DOWN!
PLEASE?"

"I'm right Here, child."

"WELL?
WELL!
We better have a TALK!
Right NOW!
And, NO!
I'm NOT GONNA CALM DOWN!"

[IRRITATING SILENCE.]

"Come ON, Lord!
I wanna KNOW!"

[OMINOUS PAUSE.]
[SOME RUMBLING
OFF IN THE DISTANCE.]
"Who AM I, child?"

"The One Who
doesn't LIKE PORCUPINES?"

[PATIENT SIGH.]
"Read My Word, child."

"And, what about the BILLY GOATS?
What'd Ya have against THEM?"

"Read, child."

"Yeah!
It's right HERE, Lord.
Let's see.....wait a minute;
I gotta get my cat off of
the Big Bible.
(Scruffing sounds.)
(A couple meows.)
(Rootbeer bottle falls
off table.)
(More meows.)
Here it is, LORD:

Night and day
it shall not be quenched
its smoke shall go up
forever.....
But the hawk and
porcupine
shall possess it..........
Thorns shall grow over
its stronghold...
it shall be the haunt
of jackals....
the satyr shall cry
to its fellow....
[Isaiah 34:10-14]

What's wrong with PORCUPINES,
LORD? I think they're really
CUTE!"

[PATIENT NOD.]
"Who made them, child?"

"I dunno."

"Who."

"Now You sound like
an owl, Lord. Hey,
it's right HERE!
In Your WORD:

There shall the owl
nest and lay
and hatch
and gather her young
in her shadow.
[Isaiah 34:15]

WELL? You even
talk about the OWLS!"

[LAUGH!]
"Yes, child!
I know."

"Seriously, Lord!
How come Y'ur always
talking against the billy GOATS?
What's WRONG with 'em,
ANYWAY?"

"I made them, child."

"Yeah.
But, You also made all those
BAD people in the WORLD!
What about THEM?
Yeah, and THEY get
to go to HEAVEN?
And, our cats
and dogs DON'T?
(Point up at air conditioning vent.)
HEY, MY CAT'S GOT
MORE SOUL THAN
ANYBODY I KNOW!
MORE SOUL IN THE
TEENY TINY CLAW
OF HER BACK PAW!"

[SMILE.]
"Who is your Lord,
child?"

(Yell up at air vent.)
"YOU ARE!"

[NOD.]
"Read My Word,
beloved."

"Ya mean, THIS one, again?

For My thoughts
are not
your thoughts;
Neither
are
your ways,
My ways,
says the Lord.
[Isaiah 55:8]

YEAH, but Y'ur ALWAYS
tellin' me to read that
Part, LORD!"

[NOD.]
"Yes, little one.
But;
[PAUSE.]
you have yet to learn It."
******************************
And God said,
Let the earth
bring forth
living creatures
according
to their kinds;
cattle
and creeping things
and beasts
of the earth....
And,
it was so.
[Genesis 1:24]

There's got to be animals in heaven, if not our own pets. Why would God create something that he wouldn't include in eternity. Very cute. Meow!

This is great! I love your style.

A fun read-I enjoyed it. Especially the the bits with the kitty inside-and the touch of the rootbeer bottle.
