More Than Two-by-Two ~ A Conversation with God

(Globe designed by Christine Epiphany Sanctuary)

"Not in church again, Mimi, I see."
"Oh, you noticed. Well you see, I've been busy, God. I mean preoccupied, well...the power went out while I was drying my hair
uh.....would you believe a flat tire?

God is not amused.

I dreamed last night I was in a global village, God, and everywhere I looked there were all nationalities.....Gem driving a pink cadillac down the streets of the North Pole ..and Travis danced under the a flashing disco streetlight...and Cheysuli was ...

"Uh...Mimi.Yes, God?
But Cheysuli was...


"There are no streets at the North Pole. No streets? Hmmmm.. But where does Santa drive his...
"We'll discuss that later, Mimi.

"Now where was I? I remember now...Cheysuli was elected President and Lizza sat on a throne in the Great White North.

Silence. Of the God-kind.
"Mimi, Chey is a cat and Lizza lives in Asia. That's west, my dear, not north.""But it's north from somewhere! And God?
"Yes, Your Royal Highness?"

"You're interrupting me again."

"Sorry. I just thought I saw a blue flash in a heavenly cloud. Strangest distraction. Continue, my dear.(God taking notes:

Mimi needs to learn a little respect. Throw her a little test after peace globes.)

I have a confession to make, Lord.

Just a minute, Mims, I need a bigger pad to write on.
(Did I just imagine a giggle from that cloud outside my window?)
(Mimi taking notes: God needs a sense of humor. Throw Him a little test after peace globes.)
I can't learn the language, Lord. Not before Wednesday. My new friends are counting on me. The cats, the dogs, the gerbils. Did you know gerbils talk, Lord? No wonder Noah had to build condos with built-in speakers on the Ark. I can hardly hear a word they're saying.
"Uh...Mimi....."
But God! The dogs are barking!! And drowning out the little animals. It's a zoo I tell ya...
"Mims....about the Ark (God taking notes: Mimi missed Sunday School when the teacher played pin-the-two-by-fours-on-the-ark. Refresher needed.)

The Ark, Mimi....there was no noise, dear. A peaceful voyage it was .
It was raining that day, wasn't it God?

Yes, Mimi but there were no stereo speakers and no one needed to shout and....

Then how did the little people get by?

Well discuss this later, Mimi.
(God taking notes: Do not bring up anything past Genesis with her ever again, especially the Garden of Eden and anything to do with fig leaves.)

Any more questions? I really need to find out what all this commotion is in the blogosphere today. There's a rumbling cloud or two with a vibrating blue beat I haven't seen near Heaven before. I think Lennon is singing somewhere near that bouncing ball over there......And there are kittens, a slew of canines, hootin' owls, bead birds and even people. They look almost....almost.......global."

God, are you feeling alright?
Does your confession have anything to do with a rainbow, Miss Lenox? Have you been in the paint-by-number kit again?
I think I can explain. See, that's what my confession is about. You might be getting some visitors soon and it's all my fault.
God? Are you there? God! I need to ask a question about the ark and the promise and peace and really important stuff. This is no time to go cloud hopping.

God making notes: Maybe she does get it.
And Mimi, about that pencil skirt....
We'll discuss that later, Lord.

I think I just heard thunder.

Hey, thanks for letting me know about this post. A pink Cadillac, huh? That's a girly, girl car. I guess that's me. I may not work at a Mennonite school any longer but I still talk to God--mostly when I am in the bathtub. It's just he and I and Mr. Bubble. And it works. I can't get my software to crop my new peace globe--my tribute to VA Tech. I guess I need to talk to the Man, too.

Travis said...

Dancing under the flashing disco lights? I can live with that.

**twirls Mimi around the bloggosphere**

Oh...sorry Bud.

It's Peace Globe week Mimi! Are you ready?!?!?!?!?

Mimi Lenox said...

Talk to the man, Gem.
I think he knows Microsoft.
And I'm for darn sure he knows Bill Gates.

Mimi Lenox said...

And GEM.....The part about the dream was true. You WERE driving a pink cadillac in my dream. Bizarre. What does it mean??!! What does it mean??!

Mimi Lenox said...

Travis - Lots of blogger were there from all parts of the world.
An interesting dream that I continue to remember tonight. Love it when that happens.

Am I ready?

I've been ready since the last one was over.

lizza said...

As long as I have free access to an unlimited supply of chocolate (plus a few other things) I don't care where I sit. :-D

This sure was one funny conversation between you and Him!

Cheysuli said...

Hmm... I usually nap on Sundays (well every day but longer on Sundays) so I just got over here.... President of the North Pole hmm? I could do that. There was heat wasn't there?

Oh and I think God has forgotten the more difficult parts of the Ark voyage. You know how it is...

Jennifer said...

What a great post! I loved reading it! I think I've had that conversation with God myself. Hey, if I'm in one of your dreams could I have a cool helicopter with James Bond-like gadgets? If not, a PBJ sandwich will suffice.

Mimi Lenox said...

Lizza - loved your post today about chocolate peace globes. Too funny.

Mimi Lenox said...

Chey for President.

Mimi Lenox said...

Jennifer - I just read your blog. It's delightful. And I learned that you can teach catspeak.

I need lessons.
Badly.

TopChamp said...

Hello - Globe up and running... stil missing the deep and meaningful thoughts on peace though. Perhaps I will just remind people to hop over here to get some of that.

Sanni said...

Oh yeah... you´re definitely ready for the Blogblast week =)

Uhm... maybe it sounds a bit... weird, but since today our dog´s got her own blog. It´s her 5th birthday today... and guess what she did?
Exactly!
*WHOOF!*

Mimi Lenox said...

Oh yes.....I'm definitely going over to see the woof woof party.

Mimi Lenox said...

Topchamp - It will come to you. The globe itself is meaningful, yes.
