Let the church say AMEN!!

When I got home from work on Wednesday, we sat down to eat and hubby asks me if I mind if our next door neighbor goes to mid-week service with us. I don't mind but he knows not to just spring stuff on me at the last minute either. So it was time to go and our neighbor comes hopping across the lawn. I say good evening and the conversation between he and hubby took off from there. Hubby said, "let me see what kind of Bible you got". I am already embarrassed just HOW he said it. I have told him over and over again that it's not merely WHAT you say, but HOW you say it. So Mr. Neighbor shows hubby the Bible and it says New American Bible...hubby says, "Oh no, you can't use this Bible, you need a New King James Version for our church." I was flabbergasted. No, seriously, my mouth flew open. I mumbled out the side of my mouth, "There is nothing wrong with his Bible."

So hubby and Mr. Neighbor got in this debate about the word of God. Mr. Neighbor asked hubby was it a sin to drink. Hubby said that the sin ain't drinking but the sin is getting drunk. They went on to talk about how Jesus turned water into wine and Mr. Neighbor wanted to know if Jesus tasted or sipped on any of it. In my mind I'm thinking just read the word for yourself. We are driving and I can hardly wait to get to the church because the two of them are getting on my nerves. Hubby then says to Mr. Neighbor, "Do you ever open up your Bible at all because it seems mighty new." In the name of Jesus, please let me just see the steeple of the church and I don't need to wait for him to park, I'm gonna just jump out and walk the rest of the way.

Finally, we arrive at the church (THEY ARE STILL TALKING) The car was barely in park good when I jumped out and hurried away. Whew....Now can the church please say AMEN!!

Lovingly yours,


  1. You ain't nuthin but a mess, lady! That was hilarious. I was just excited that your hubby was set to plant a seed, spread the word in whatever way he could to your neighbor. That's just awesome!

  2. That's tough goign talk about hard work - hope you managed to find your own pew and leave the men to it :)

  3. Oooops- what was that all about then? Maybe your husband was 'sussing' him out? ;0)
