Time Out with Jesus

January 14, 2008

I’m sure by the title you may think you know where I am going with this post, but you would probably be wrong.

My sister and brother in law recently moved into a relatives mansion due to some difficult circumstances. My question to her was, “I know you always wanted to live in a nice house, but did you have to take this route to get here?” Fortunately all of us have very poor taste in jokes and we’re all good with my bad attempt at humor.

Her cousin who owns this 7000 sf. beauty and the 15000 sf. home right next door that he has been renovating for four years, collects sculpture, art and antiques from around the world to use in his home next door as soon as it is completed. Meanwhile, my sister and brother-in-law live side by side with several 6ft. statues of Roman soldiers with weaponry, statues of angels, several pianos, and ornate furnishings that would take an army to lift. But my personal favorite that adorns the foyer is this 8ft. statue of Jesus, also known as… the time out chair.

Yep, you heard it right….this is where naughty little boys go to think over their actions, which might sound something like this….

“You know what happened to God’s only son, so you had better shape up quick!”

Of course the hilarity of this provoked me to ask where I could get my own 8ft. statue of Jesus because I can’t think of a better place to spend time out. Although, I think I would have to paper mache it because I probably couldn’t afford a 2 ft. statue of Jesus and somehow I don’t think the 2ft. version would have quite the same effect.

Anyway…

Now to Markdown Monday, which I already almost forgot to post. UGH…grey matter overload.

    Oooooh! Where can I get one?! The ultimate guilt-trip to Repentance!
    Hi Hallie! This is my first time visiting your blog and I laughed out loud several times. I live in South Africa, am not a single mom and have 2 boys, but somehow our lives sound remarkably ( alarmingly?) similar! This is the funniest thing I’ve seen in a long, long time…
    God bless, Elmarie
    PS It probably makes it easier to sit at the feet of Jesus too….
