Bible Study


I was in a state of melancholy [but don’t be alarmed, it’s my constant, normal state now a-days]
usually preceded by an afternoon in court

Rubbing skin with deceiving lawyers
Standing upright against the glare of hungry prosecutors

Me, being ….on the wrong side of the law this time, so
seeking a little solace from the world at large
a brief port in the storm

I called a friend
against my better judgment
and stronger nature

“Hey” I said, a got a few minutes

Well…………“actually no” was the quicken reply


Aaaaaaaaa ok

“I’m busy “came the hurried response,….studying

Oh Ok,…..what’s ya studying I inquired?

“The Bible” came the reply

Now I’m thinking to myself
Isn’t there something about helping a friend in need
or even helping an enemy, indeed
but I’m not as well versed or well read on the Bible
as I should be…

Studying the Bible is a good thing, cause I know you can never know enough about something as important as the word of God

I myself never did all that well in school, or studying for that matter, so it’s somewhat foreign to me
hard to believe that now I love books and reading …….
As much as I now do

But anyway …to show I didn’t hold a grudge
Or even was upset, about being almost hung up on
I answered the phone , on the very first ring

And I even offered to run a errand favor  for free
…expecting nothing

In return

I love the irony of being too busy studying the bible - studying how to Love, to show love to you. Ouch! I hope someone else was there for you in your moments of need. And I can't help but wonder what the court case was about. . .

Interesting reflections Stan. I like the realism of the situation and your personal point of view that stresses the irony without forgetting to be humane.

the Bible chapters are so awesome to read
and absorb with personal perception
your friend could try not answering the phone
but it is good to not hold on to the feeling of
being blown off...or whatever you felt

in times when we expect nothing
we receive...Vickie

So many emotions expressed in this, runs the scope from pain to humor. And I think, you've made your point well!
Reviewed by D Johnson 10/26/2010
I'm sorry, but I see humor, sadness, desperation and a whole mess of emotions in this short write...and I see them playing out on the screen.

Reviewed by Walt Hardester 10/26/2010
I think of the Bible as more of a guidline. I mean Moses wrote the old testement, and he left out the dinosaurs.

Points well made, Stan. Thank you. Love and peace to you,
