I’m always on the lookout for signs that God throws my way. I don’t seem to respond to His subtle hints. He needs the full thrust of thrown lightning bolts and booming thunder when telling me something!
Take the time IT Guy and I and several cousins were visiting the horse racing track near Dallas. As I turned to ITy to suggest placing another bet, the lens from my eyeglasses popped out and fell into his lap.
Sign from God: Stop betting.
Then there was the time I decided to grab 20 minutes to go to a junk store when I should have been working. I turned behind a car that was stopped at a red light just as that driver decided to back up - right into the side of my car.
Sign from God: That one kinda confused me. It was either Stop going to junk stores or Stop cheating on your employer by junking on his time. I chose He meant the latter.
I’m not the only one who needs heavy signs from God. Ol’ Jon and Kate of reality TV fame can’t seem to see the trainwreck coming down the road either, so God keeps throwing them bigger and bigger lightning bolts - this time in the form of an investigation into the abuse of child labor laws.
Don’t Jon and Kate realize that by drawing attention to themselves, they’re making it harder and harder for good people like the Octomom to get her own show?
So just in case J & K + 8 is taken off the airways, I’m offering them titles for a new show, based on other popular series. After all, I'd hate for them to have to get real jobs!
