As promised, here is another excerpt from Raising God's Rainbow Makers, my next book, which is currently in progress. Comments welcomed and adored! I prefer to get comments, especially negative ones, before publication. After publication is a bit late!
“Lord, another baby?” the angel asked with a bit of incredulity.
“Yes, another,” the Lord replied.
“But, Lord, why this baby?”
“Why not this baby?” the Lord countered.
“Well, you know, Lord. The mother said that she could handle any physical problem. As long as there were no mental defects, she could manage...” The angel stopped, wondering perhaps why more needed to be said.
“She did say that, didn’t she?” The Lord was unperturbed.
“Lord, this one will have a mental deficit.”
“A very serious one.”
“An obviousto-everyone serious one.”
“But, Lord, she said she could not cope with that.”
“She will cope. I will help.”
“But, Lord, she does not know You exist.”
“The baby does.”
God works in mysterious ways, thought the angel and put away the record book after recording: Don & Elizabeth Mahlou…baby son, Doah.
