What Did I Just Say To Jesus?
by Jim Rapp
A friend related her encounter,
awaking at night to find
Jesus' piercing gaze affixed on her.
"What the heck!" she greeted him,
then closed her eyes tight shut.
Reopening she found herself alone again.
"Now why did I say that?" she asked.
She'd blinked and lost her fleeting chance
to utter something memorable at last.
Had she offended Jesus, standing at her door;
squandered, once for all, her opportunity;
shown herself a bumbling fool . . . or
had Jesus, delighted, turned his glance
to spare her from his joyful burst
of laughter at her fumbled eloquence?
