So… a funny story. Well, to me, anyway. 🙂 I had just finished a luncheon for the staff at Turning Point Academy, a charter school here in Prince George’s County, MD. I was about to leave the building, so I decided tp make a pit stop at the men’s room first. As I was walking down the hall, this older gentleman stopped me..
“What’s goin’ on, Rev?!”
“Hey, how are you, buddy?”
“I knew you were a Rev the moment I saw you… you LOOK like a Rev! You even have a Rev walk!”
I’m not exactly sure what a Rev-walk is… but I DID know I had to get to the men’s room. But he continued…
“We’ve gptta love one another, Rev! And I didn’t say nuthin’ ’bout ACTIN’ like we love each other… we gotta really do it!”
“Yessir, I agree…”
“God is amazing, Rev! He woke me up this mornin’, and started me on my way! He put runnin’ in my feet! Wanna see me run, Rev??”
“No, no… that wouldn’t be necessary. I just need…”
“God is AMAZIN’, Rev!!”
At this point, I’m thinking ol’ dude is about to break into a Ray Lewis dance… and all the while, he’s still holding my hand from the moment he first spoke to me and we shook hands. And he won’t let go. I’m trapped. And nature is calling with a very loud voice.
“We gotta do what God say do, Rev… we gotta stop playin’ around. GOOD God Almighty!! Ima give Him GLORY… ALLLLLLL the day long!! As long as I have breath, Ima praise my God!! Have mercy on my soul, Jeeeeeesus!”
And… I know my man was gettin’ his praise prayze on… and I know this might be a tad unspiritual… but all I could think at the moment was…
DUDE. I. GOTTA. PEE!!!!!! 🙂
