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.
Time to hear the results of the biopsy.
