My mouth will either say Something or not say Something.
He is a challenge for us all.
But mostly he is a challenge to Himself, mostly.
Over today's problems into a Future
Filled with the promises of God.
Short enough to duck
When the present is not so Promising.
Tears are not unusual.
He is much like Jeremiah the Prophet.
He is able to read between the Lines.
He is blinded to distortion and Unbelief.
Said—understanding the message behind the words. Talks too much often to Himself.
For others have not ears to Hear
What he has to say.
He is able to communicate in The language
Of earth and heaven.
Slow to turn issue over to God,
For he often knows not what The problem is. He figures God should know what to do,
If he wants the Chaplains Input
He will ask him for it.
Twenty-four hours a day, Seven days a week. Ready to Help support the strong
Twenty-four hours a day, even days a week. Sometimes he Feels weak.
Sometimes he feels strong.
It keeps him busy.
People expect him to be strong
And will wait until he is before They
Talk to him again,
And or bring their issues.
It is required and expected of Him
To be an issue handler.
The God of all comfort with The hurting.
Often seen trying on other People's shoes.
He does not always like how They fit.
He has no desire to try them On
They just end up on his feet.
He can’t get away from these stinking shoes For some Reason.
But he can’t respond to shoes That way
At the time of wearing them.
His mouth and heart won’t let Him.
He has a fit some time later or
Gets a big laugh out of it.
Some probably wonder
What he is laughing about?
Again, he is alone at the time.
Full of compassion for others.
Yeah but God gets on is nerves Too.
Recently I have been able to tell him so. Maybe he likes me Now.
He didn’t mind Jonah Complaining.
You have to take all their shit!
When are you not Ministering?
If they hear you complain they Often ask, “Who are you Talking to?”
Gee, thanks for your Understanding and help. Now Will you please shut up!
I shouldn’t think like that.
I guess Chaplains never Deserve a break
Any day now?
If they get one. Someone will Cut it short. Often they will Gang up
Against the poor Chaplain.
I guess they think I should not Get any rewards until I get to Heaven.
I do a lot of writing.
But of course, at the time Paul had to make and sell tents to earn a meager income. It is interesting, publishers say people are just not interested in short stories and are hard pressed to publish them in book format.
They say people prefer novels.
All I am Able to write are SHORTS!
