As I walk into the saloon I head towards the bar where I can drown my thoughts that are of this day, for they have been swimming in my mind since I rose from my restless nights sleep. As I sit down to begin my spiral into my abyss, I pause…
“WE” don’t serve the likes of your kind around here!
“Don’t mind him, his wife will be here shortly to retrieve him, what will you be having today sir?
“A shot of water!
LOL! It looks as if you need something stronger than that!
“You know, I think you are right!
“Well then, what will you be having today?
“I know this might sound a bit strange, but do you happen to have a Bible?
Bartender: (noticeably exited)
“I don’t have one in the bar, but I do have a couple in the car, do you want the “KJV” version, or the “NIV” version?
“The “KJV” version, thanks for asking.”
“I’ll be right back, God is good!”
“Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.”
1 Thessalonians 5:11
