Dear Sir (or Whatever),
As you know, I don’t usually write you open letters, but these days, things have piled up.
First off, why did you have to make my hard drive crash? Don’t go all innocent; every day I hear people say how you’re in total control, and it’s all according to your plan, etc., etc. Besides, don’t think I haven’t noticed that everything computer lately is in the cloud. That’s where you live; hard to believe you’d allow a setup like that unbeknownst. Sure, lots of people say it’s just the computer companies trying to get more and more control and money off their customers, but I can’t believe you’d let your space be used that way – doesn’t seem like you. I am also aware I’ve been rude lately, maybe even blasphemous, but a hard drive crash seems a bit much. How about just one of those migraines, wouldn’t that have been more appropriate?
And then there’s the matter of your people down here – you seriously need to get a grip on them. They’re always yammering about peace and love, and the whole time they’ve got their hands around your throat and in your pocket. I like the new guy, Frank, at the Vatican, but frankly, I’m worried for him. I saw what happened to John Paul I. Was that you, or some of your Vatican enforcers? Either way, things seem out of control, and not just in your Mideast franchises. Here in the US, your people have gotten really crazy. Look, I know that those you would destroy, you first drive mad, but did you ever consider that the rest of us have to live through that, too? Didn’t you learn anything from that whole Job experience?
And the weather. Don’t get me started on the weather. Yes, we’ve screwed it up ourselves, but, again, it’s your people who have worked the hardest to keep us from fixing things. We’ve got preachers down here positively gloating about Tribulations and Rapture and what-not. If you’re not coming back right away, I’d just as soon you fix the weather thing and leave us alone for awhile. Don’t give me that business that you can’t do anything about it; people ask you all the time to reverse those laws you set up so long ago, just so they can win a big football game, for Christ’s sake. You could just wave your hand, or whatever it is you’ve got, and Bob’s your uncle.
Well, I know Bob’s not really your uncle. I won’t even ask you about that triangle thing you’ve got going with Jesus and the Holy Ghost. Not my business really.
Hilarious. Thanks to You-know-who.
My hard drive crashed too, only just been fixed – I guess He is in the IT mis-management zone at the moment, must be time of the year, He’ll probably move onto washing machines next, or maybe back to politics. If only we were more like this guy http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mucYcm6moe0 then we’d be well ok
Oh, yeah. God seems to be way too into micromanagement these days, except for important stuff like global warming.
I’m still begging to have this damned cold go away. Then again Him and I don’t have much of a relationship.
Himself has been crabby lately. I’m worried he’s fixing to do the Sodom and Gomorrah thing again.
And the answer is, God works in mysterious ways and you just have trust him. It’s not fair that he always gets to hide behind that excuse. What can you really say to that?
And the same is true about Santa, dammit! 😉
He certainly bombed with last year, a total disaster in so many ways. Let’s hope he listens
to you and takes heed.
To be fair, though, he had so little to work with, human-wise.
