In the world
you have
tribulation;
but
be
of good cheer,
I have
overcome
the world.
[John 16:33]
*******************
"Hey, LORD?
Did You hear about that
weird thing* that the SWISS
invented?"

[SILENCE.]

"Yeah; pretty weird,
HUH?"

[SILENCE.]

"Yeah; it's supposed
to, like, split atoms
in outer space
or somethin'."

[SILENCE.]

"Yeah; in MY opinion,
they should'a just stopped
at cheese......and, the
WATCH.....Ya KNOW?"

[CHUCKLE.]

"Plus, I think they
make really good cough drops."

"Who, child?"

"The SWISS!
(Whiney voice.)
Aren't You LISTENING
to ME?"

[SOLEMN NOD.]
"I hear every word,
My beloved."

"Well......HOW can
You listen to ME,
and listen to EVERYBODY
ELSE at the SAME TIME?"

[PATIENT SIGH.]
"It is a Mystery,
My beloved."

(Giggle!)
"Yeah, but.......the CHRISTIANS
don't whine as much as I DO!
HUH?"

[PATIENT NOD.]
"You would be surprised,
child."

(Mouth agape at air vent.)
"REALLY?
Wow......and, I thought I
had the BEST kvetching!
Oh, well."
(Smile!)
"Anyhow.......
I think people are getting
impatient, Lord."

"For what,
child."

"Well.....for YOU!
(Smile!)
Maybe, that's why
they're all hell bent
on destroying this EARTH!
They're gettin' TIRED
of waitin' for You to
build all those MANSIONS!"

[LOVING NOD.]
"Good, child.
Continue to read My Word."

"SEE? I DO read it!
Here it is:

In My Father's house
are many (mansions);
if it were not so,
would I have told you
that I go
to prepare
a place for you?
[John 14:2]

SEE?"

[NOD.]
"Yes, child.
But, do you believe it?"

"I dunno, Lord.
(Squirm.)
I dunno; how can I
believe in this WONDERFUL
GOD, when He's makin'
all the POLAR bears EXTINCT?
And, killin' sweet PANDAS
off, in EARTHQUAKES....?
HEY! None of US
are doin' THAT!"

[LONG PAUSE.]
"What have I told you,
My beloved?"

"You mean that part
about MY THOUGHTS
an' YOUR THOUGHTS?"

[NOD.]
"Yes.
Read It, precious."

"RIGHT NOW?
FORGET IT!
I wann'a know why
You hate the POLAR BEARS
so MUCH!"

[PATIENT RUMBLE.]

"Alright! Alright!
I thought You said
You don't get mad, EASY?
(Wave both puny hands at the air vent.)
Here it is:

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

[NOD.]

(Squinting.)
(Finish last spoonful of raspberry
sherbet.)
"So......what's this gotta
do with the SWISS?
And, their new TOY?"
(Drop sticky spoon onto the floor.)
I don't UNDERSTAND?"

"You need to go to sleep,
child."

"Yeah.
(Sigh.)
Alright.
Like my Mom used to say,
ya can't solve all the problems
of the world in one DAY!"

"That is very true, little one.
[PAUSE.]
Leave it......
to Me."
***********************
"It is finished."
[John 19:30]
