Your Dying Spouse 730 - Fever Dream Jesus

I was very, very ill over the weekend, and this sonnet came into my head, fully formed.

I hope God has a sense of humour.

Saw Jesus in a cowboy bar,

His halo had done slipped.
Some good ol’ boys had gone too far;
their asses would be whipped.
You do not take His name in vain
with arrogant aplomb,
and if you are nearly sane,
you don’t insult His mom.
But these guys thought their jokes were cool,
and that The Christ would understand,
but if you play the heathen fool
you’re going to face the Christian hand
that points out the verbal flaw
in the breaking of the jaw.

Music from Toby Keith, with Should've been a A Cowboy.

Thanks to Carol Ashby, Blessed Are The Pure Of Heart is back on Kindle, and will be available in paperback soon.

Friends are everything. I couldn't have done it.

Marley, the canine waif from Afghanistan, whom WE helped save, has a Facebook page! Please drop by to see how happy he is today.

Below are my recent releases on Kindle -please excuse their presence in the body of the blog. I haven't the energy to get them up as 'buttons' in the sidebar. You can click on the covers to go to the Amazon links.


  1. Yep, I can see Jesus in a cowboy hat in a bar, sweeping it clean just as he did the money changers outside the temple. The dog is so cute.

    1. Wise Hearted, that's PERFECT! Thank you!

      And I love the dog, too.

  2. I had to grin at this one, Andrew. Thanks for sharing this, even in the midst of all you're enduring right now.

    1. Jeanne, I'm so glad you enjoyed this. It came from ome difficult moments, but I think God wanted me to have some fun.

  3. Your wit and humor are just as sharp as ever, Andrew! Thanks for giving us a little laugh! And here's to praying you feel a bit of joy amidst the pain in your day as well, my friend!

    1. Beth, thank you so much! And thank you for the prayers. There is far more joy in my life now than there ever was, when I was healthy. Isn't that odd?

      Or maybe better said..."Isn't that God?"

  4. Leon, I'm so glad...thank you so much for stopping by!
