And it took a long time
Overheard around the breakfast table:
Daddy, aren’t you going to read us a Bible story?
Wait, I need to go to the bathroom
Hold on, I want some more fruit.
Aren’t you going to wait for my brother?
Why aren’t you telling me the story?
Finally, he reads: Jesus looked up and saw the rich putting their gifts into the offering box, and he saw a poor widow put in two small copper coins. And he said, “Truly, I tell you, this poor widow has put in more than all of them. For they all contributed out of their abundance, but she out of her poverty put in all she had to live on.”
Well, that was a short story!
And it took a long time!
My life is a “If You Give a Pig a Pancake . . . “. Series of redirects, but somehow we get to what we were after eventually.
