Me: (under my breath) “Did you have your cell phone on?”
Rebecca: (Under her breath) “My phone died. Why?”
Me: “I texted ‘L-O-V-E’ and didn’t get a response from you.”
Me: “Not even a “L.”
Me: “Is something wrong?”
Rebecca: (Shakes her head exasperated)
Me: “If your phone hadn’t died would you have written back ‘L-O-V-E’ or at least ‘L’?
Me: “Because if your answer is ‘No,’ I’m retracting my earlier ‘L-O-V-E’ text to you. I’m serious. I’ll do it.”
Rebecca: (trying not to laugh and still talking under her breath) “No.”
Me: “It’s retracted then. Officially.”
Rebecca: “I mean, ‘No. I would have written back L-O-V-E.’ Now be quiet.”
Me: “OK then. I will reinstate my ‘L-O-V-E’ text. It’s officially reinstated now. Are we good?”
Rebecca: (Smiles and rolls her eyes)
Me: “Good. I’m glad we cleared that up.”
I just talked to God while praying this morning and, although He didn’t come right put and say it, I got the distinct impression He was bringing His A – game today.
Just a feeling I got and wanted to relay if you are going to church today. You may want to reach for that new sports coat or dress. Just a heads up out there.
(P.S. It also could be that I feel this way because Ann Fleming is leading our Sunday school class this morning. After God, Ann is one of the people I try hardest to act good around when she is present. They both bring put the best in me, but still make me nervous.)
