‘Ding, DONG … DONG, Ding’ went the doorbell.
My dogs went into a panic: Intruder alert!
There were two very primly dressed ladies at my front door. ‘Hello’ sez me. ‘Hello’ sez they, ‘Can we ask you two questions.’
With coffee cup firmly in hand, but almost empty: Sure.
Q #1: Don’t you agree that the world is becoming ever more troublesome? … Umm, no. Am pretty sure that the world has always been a fairly messed up place.
Q #2: Don’t you agree that the future looks grim and the end times are coming? … Well yes, I did hear that the world will end one day. But that is about four billion years into the future … so am not overly worried.
Bonus Question: Wouldn’t you like to know Jesus’ answers for these questions? (The dogs are still going crazy. They aren’t happy unless they get a chance to bite and nip at some heels.) … No, thank you. Perhaps another day.
As they left, the lead questioner noted: You have beautiful flowers and a nice smile, too.
Today is Monday. Not even noon yet. It is going to be a good week.
