This morning my Pastor husband asked me to do the scripture reading for him.
A straightforward request. Nothing weird from Hezekiah or Zephaniah or anything.
Just, Revelation 19:1-10. Just ..."I heard the sound of a vast crowd in heaven shouting, 'Hallelujah! Salvation is from our God..."
What did I say?
"Hallelujah! Salivation is from our God."
I told him at lunch that it's not about how you screw up, it's about how you recover and keep your composure.
He wasn't convinced.
I might have been able to believe that no one heard the slip, -it was just one extra little syllable, after all- but for my friend in the pew behind me.
As I came back to sit down, she caught my eye with a wicked little gleam in hers and slowly, and meaningfully, licked her lip.
I wasn't even hungry!
