What just brightened my day

I was just leafing through an old notebook that I have been carrying with me for years (lost contact with it for a while - it was drowning in dirty tissues in my purse), and on one page was this, in my own handwriting:

"Jesus is very much on his way to becoming an excellent engineer."

It took me a drawn out 30 seconds to realize that God was not speaking to me about his immortal son, but that this piece of information was an excerpt of a recommendation for a Mexican named 'hey-zeus'. How normal is it that the thought 'Jesus is changing careers, from a carpenter and motivational speaker to an engineer' crossed my mind?

That is AWESOME! Even my very Christian mother would find that humorous and day "brightening". Well, it is a logical career move if he's looking for a change.

Amanda and Erin - Thanks so much. It totally made my day too.

And yes, I think today Jesus would be a software engineer. It would be a smart move on his side.

Makes perfect sense...why wouldn't he want to make a career change after all these years!

Extranjera said...

Marathoner - I agree. Sometimes it's good to shake things up a bit.

Isn't it cool how the Divine sneaks up on us, giving us a little morsel of inspiration, when we least expect it in a place we would never think we'd find it?

Thanks for the 'soul' caffeine

Awesome!

I wonder how often we miss these little miracles because we do not see. I think sometimes God just has to whack us over the head to get our attention.

Extranjera said...

M.J. - I love these tiny morsels of funny that are just too good to not be passed on.

An Open heart and Just A Girl - As you know, I'm not religious at all, but how great is it that by sharing this I could give you a completely different experience!
