Carrying a Concealed Weapon

Today, will be short and sweet... a humorous little moment that cracked me up...

I had a busy day - many things to do, some of which could have been a bit trying. There was also the possibility of some "downtime", so I brought 'a book' to read. (English Standard Version)

Coincidentally, my bible fit PERFECTLY in my purse, despite it's size. For those who don't know, I am one who would rather not carry a purse at all, so I was very aware of the extra weight and bulk at my hip. As I was walking from one appointment to the next, I made a sort of smart-alack remark to myself.... "Gosh, you'd think I was carrying a weapon...

A whisper from the Gentle voice within: "You are...."

I laughed out loud. The Sword of the Spirit right there with me, in case I needed it.

I just love God....

It's neat that God reminded you of your weapon. I love God's sense of humor and yet his abiding presence in our lives.
