As I believe I've said before,
part of the entrance exam for heaven
is a spelling test.
I suggest you study up while you can.

awkward, but a nice sentiment

that's a somewhat bizarre concept, isn't it?
I mean, don't most people who warble on about the white haired old
judeo-christian gentleman sitting on a cloudbank espouse the belief
that god is influencing them daily? In fact, the viewpoint exhibited
by the narrator of this piece seems akin to one adopted by someone who
experiences a deathbed conversion. a la Hemingway.

i thought it was one's behaviour throughout a lifetime that determined
one's admission to st. peter's exclusive club. a further proviso for a
roman catholic would be the administration of the last rites. This is
a startling new wrinkle in christian dogma. If we follow this to its
logical conclusion, we could all be total jerks our whole lives, and
as long as we were on our best behaviour at the moment of death, we
would all go to heaven. some people are going to be really pissed
off.

are we to assume that you are further subverting established christian
dogma by asserting that heaven is the source of all heartache.
this is really groundbreaking.

if we lean on *his* support, what will he lean on?

The feeling of love is giveing .
We never will be able to feel
the touch of "God's " hand untill
that day comes he leads us to heaven.

He is our father and our leader. But


when we have the chance to meet
we will be on our best behavior.

No longer will we have to worrie


about wounds, illiness , a heart-

break from heaven . Because we will

Reely? I'm in truble then. Gave up on heaven anyway. Was hoping for a long
stay at Joy's place instead.

Of course, Michael, you've got to be able to spell.
If you can't read the signs you might end up in
Heavin or Havin or Haven or Hiven or even Hovin.

Haven isn't too bad actually, but lord knows
you don't want to go to Heavin.

sam

Some say there is no Heaven or Hell,
just Haven and MisbeHaven.

I ain't going to Texas then, cause if someone called me ma'am just for
talking low, I just don't know what I'd do.

The 'finger wave'. That's not just Texas, country folks all over do that.
In my grampa's day, if you were going along and saw somebody you knew,
you'd both pull over and talk a while.
Then it became just a big arm wave, then the hand wave.
Now they just lift a finger off the steering wheel.
Economy of motion.
