.......Give heed
to my groaning.
Hearken
to the sound
of my cry,
my King
and my God,
for to Thee
do I pray.
[Psalms 5:1-2]
***********************
"I'm in a bad mood, Lord."

[SOLEMN NOD.]
"Yes, beloved."

"You don't sound that SURPRISED!"

[WISE SILENCE.]

"Hey, LORD?
How does that WORK,
anyway?
(Make face up at ceiling fan.)
Should I wait till I'm a in good
mood, to PRAY?"

[LONG PAUSE.]
"When would that be,
My beloved?"

(Squint kvetchingly straight up.)
"HEY!
I DIDN'T MAKE this WORLD,
Ya know!
(Point up at ceiling.)
YOU did!"

[PATIENT NOD.]
"Yes, child.
You seem to forget that."

"Nuh, UH!
I NEVER forget!
Who was It Who made
that bad FRUIT TREE?
That wasn't OUR fault!"

[PATIENT NOD.]

"I still don't get that,
LORD!
Why would Somebody
put a bad tree in a
Perfect Place, anyhow?
It doesn't make any
SENSE!"

"Who is Somebody,
child?"

"I dunno."

[SMILE.]
"Who is It?"

(Pouty shrug.)

"Who?"

"Hey, LORD?
Did Ya ever see
'My Cousin Vinny'?"

[PATIENT NOD.]
[CHUCKLE.]

"You DID?
That's weird.
(Squint.)
Anyway:
remember that scene
with the OWL?
Where Vinny was tryin'
to sleep in that log CABIN?
And, there was suddenly
all this loud SCREECHING,
OUTSIDE?"

[PATIENT NOD.]

"And, remember how little
that OWL was?
That was so FUNNY!"

[SOLEMN NOD.]

"I dunno;
when You kept saying
'Who?',
I suddenly thought 'a that."

"Yes, My precious.
And, what does
that teach you?"

(Thoughtful squint.)
"Uh........never judge
a recipe book by its COVER?"

[SMILE!]
"No."

"Don't count your
yellow marshmellow
chickens........ before
they've HATCHED?"

[CHUCKLE!]

"Uh.....a penny a DAY
keeps the GASOLINE
away?"

[PATIENT NOD.]
"Think, child!"

"Eh......
(Frown.)
(Squint.)
Friends of a feather
FLOCK TOGETHER?"

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

"What's that got to
do with 'Cousin Vinny', Lord?
Yeah; sure:

Thou hast
put more joy
in my heart
than they have
when their grain
and wine
abound.
[Psalms 4:7]

(Silence.)
So..........YOU'RE
my JOY, Lord?"

"Am I,
little one?"

"Yeah; I guess.
(Frown.)
(Run fingers through
scruffy hair.)
Is THAT what this
is all ABOUT?"

[NOD.]

(Kvetchy frown!)
"YEAH!
But...........
I'm still in a bad MOOD!"

[SIGH.]
"Yes, My beloved."

"And, I STILL don't
UNDERSTAND about
that piece 'a FRUIT!
(Grimmace!)
Why would BAD FRUIT
be in the Garden of Eden,
ANYWAY? I still
don't GET IT!"

[LONG NOD.]
"I understand,
child. Just remember.....
Who made the owl."
*************************
But let all
who take refuge
in Thee
rejoice;
let them
ever
sing for joy.
[Psalms 5:11]
