A few weeks ago, I recorded an interview with the Pilgrim Radio network. It was at the end of a Friday, after a long week at work. My brain cells were AWOL. Though I mangled John Ensor's book title when I referenced it (my apologies!), I thought I was holding it together fairly well. Until the end, that is. After a lengthy conversation about singleness, the host, Bill Feltner, asked me if I had anything else to add. So I began an earnest tangent about how I've been struck by the brevity of life, the reality of eternal rewards, and how few days we have to earn these rewards. Blah, blah, blah, etc. I wrapped up this little sermonette with the pithy observation that "after all, you never know when you might wake up and find yourself dead."
It took a split second it took for the sound of my voice to reach my ears and register in my brain. As soon as the loop was completed, I burst into high-pitched laughter, squealing, "That doesn't make ANY sense! Can I do that again? Wake up and find yourself DEAD??? HA HA HA HA HA...!"
Then Bill said, "Nope. I just ended the recording. We're going to keep that in there. The humor is a nice touch."
I have no idea if he was teasing me or not. But for those of you who live in the Nevada region, you may be able to listen and let me know. (I hope he edited out the part when my cell phone suddenly rang in the middle of our conversation!) The interview will air in two parts on "His People", Monday, August 4 and Tuesday, August 5 at 5:04 a.m.; 3:04 p.m.; and 12:04 a.m., after the news (Eastern time zone). You can also listen live online during those times.
And just remember, you never know when you might wake up and find yourself dead. Consider yourself warned. :)
