Puncturing the Cloud



            Still in her slippers and robe, Beth picked up the phone.  At this early hour, she figured it had to be her friend Hattie.

Hattie:  Hi, guess what?  I saw a new cloud thing—a phenomena!

Beth:  Good morning, Hattie.  What did you see?

Hattie:  I was sitting on the porch and al of a sudden this jet plane came streaking across the sky, and it punctured right threw a wispy cloud; then it came out the other side.  And, the first thing I thought about was the description in Revelation about the scorpion, and then I thought about the sky being a scroll and the ocean the ink, but I think that is from a hymn not in the Bible.  And…

Beth: Whoa!  I know you’re excited, but slow down.

Hattie: Oh.  OK.  But, it sure was neat to see.  Maybe the plane was from Red Stone, but it was very high up in the sky; it left a long white trail.  Anyway, what verse can we use to praise. 

Beth:  Well, you mentioned writing in the sky.  I’m thinking of the end of the Gospel of John.  Try looking up John 21:25, “But there are also many other things which Jesus did; were every one of them to be written, I suppose that the world itself could not contain the books that would be written.”

Hattie:  Wow!  Yes, I can praise Jesus that He is always more than we expect.  He takes messes and turns them into something beautiful; something we never even would have thought of.

Beth:  The Bible contains exactly what God wants us to know.  I suppose we’ll find out all the rest when we et to Heaven.

Hattie:  Thanks, girlfriend.  Today, I’m going to think about how Jesus is always bigger and better and more than we can ever imagine.  Hey, do you want to come over for coffee sit on the porch?
