5-22 Gideon’s



At the medical practice, a Gideon’s Bible pancaked

between stacks of Good Housekeeping, Popular Mechanics,

Women’s Day. Guns and Ammo was conspicuously missing.


Gideon’s Bible was bookmarked with a sticky

and absently, he opened it to highlighted verses:

“It pleased God through the foolishness of the Gospel

to save those through faith. We proclaim Christ nailed to a cross”.


He looked blankly, set it aside, reached for Readers’ Digest.


“OK, coming.”


Time to hear the results of the biopsy.
