Me: “Okay, guys, whoever used the jelly last, needs to wipe up the counter. There are spots of jelly dried every where. Gross.”
Kids (simultaneously chiming in): “Not me. It wasn’t me.”
Me: “Well somebody did.”
Daughter: “It was dad. He made a sandwich today.”
Me: “Dad made a chicken salad sandwich. He didn’t use jelly.”
Kids: “Well, it wasn’t me.”
Me: “Okay, so it must have been the Holy Spirit… came down and and apparently, God made himself a peanut butter and jelly sandwich?”
Son (laughing big belly laugh): “Yep.”
Dad: “Yes. Jehovah did it.”
Me: “A Jehovah sandwich?”
Should we open a restaurant and call it Belly of the Whale?
Ever find yourself on autopilot…
pausing while reading…
Wait a minute. Back up. What was that?
Do Not harden your hearts as in the rebel - lion, on the day of testing in the wildner - ness, - Hebrews 2:8
A Rebel Lion?
Rephrasing it…A Lion in Rebellion…what does that mean? I’m going to have to look up commentary on that. Ohhh, Rebellion. (hahahah) Good thing I didn’t read that aloud with my small group. Okay, this is in reference to when God had Moses lead the Jewish people out of bondage and into the wilderness. And they complained about their conditions.
But I can’t think further about this, because cue in David Bowie’s, Rebel Rebel…and I’m singing away. (Do Do Do Do…Do-do-doooododo.) Just another snap-shot of what’s going on in my mind, while I try to read the Bible. So, I need to get it out of my system so that I can move forward with my reading. And now…you’ll have this in your brain too…you’re welcome. At least it’s a good tune! I love me some David Bowie. Jesus and David Bowie. Where else are you going to find this combination other than my blog?
For those that might take offense, just change the words. “You find yourself in the wil-der-ness, and everything seems to be a mess…hot child, the Lord, loves you so…do,do,do..do”
