There is a fine line between pain and joy, tears and laughter. If you know my hubby, you know that he’s serious in nature. On occasion he’s known to say something funny, but on the most part he’s intense. I love him just the way that he is. John Paul Jackson (founder of Streams) has a blog called, “Coffee Talk with John Paul.” Tom was up last night catching up on his previous posts and commenting. He was up at until almost three o’clock in the morning. If you have the time, please click here to check out this post about spirituality. I say all that to describe to you the next thing that happened.
Tom had his laptop out and was describing to me how he couldn’t sleep. He wrote the following comment to John Paul’s post on spirituality at 2:46 am. I use this with his permission.
Well said my friend, every day we choose… Where will we feed today? From the Tree of the Knowledge of good and evil OR from the Tree of Life?
* Dialing, dialing…
* Ringing, ringing…
* "I'd like to make a reservation, please."
* "I'm sorry sir but all our tables at the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil are booked for the evening."
* "But I have plenty of openings at our sister shop, the Tree of Life, would you like a table?
* "Hmmm, what will I do?
(Psst… here's a hint…)
"This day I call heaven and earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live" (Deut. 30:9)
I laughed my butt off after he read the first two lines and continued throughout this response. Thank you honey for the laugh. He knew his phone call comment would get me out of the dept of despair I was feeling. This is one of the reasons why I love him so.
