The Perfect Job

Since our little college will not be opening this fall and I have been locked out of my office and classroom I am looking for a job.  I think I found it.  I looked on Craig’s list under Gigs/Writing.  Oh this sounds way too good to be for real.  Someone (I almost started that sentence with “they.”  But who is “they?”) is looking for an ice cream evaluator.  Now that is my kind of job.  They ever offer free ice cream.  They don’t say much about any other compensation so just maybe it is not the perfect job. (But close)

Perhaps I should respond to the ad asking for writers who have seen UFOs. As a Christian I most likely could say I have seen UFOs sometime in my life but didn’t know it.  The Bible is filled with texts regarding extra-terrestrials visiting us. One of my favorite verses regarding this is Psalm 91:11.  “For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.”  When I was a little guy I loved to hear angel stories.  If you grew up as a Christian you most likely have your favorite one.

Some of the references I find most interesting are the ones regarding Jesus’ life on earth and the angel visits.  The first one would be the angel talking with Mary about her pregnancy followed by the angel telling Joseph to marry her.  I think the shepherds in the fields of Bethlehem must have been one of the more spectacular visits.  We must not forget to mention resurrection morning when the angel sat by the empty tomb to explain what had happened.  Maybe writing about angel stories or anything to do with Jesus would be the perfect job.  The compensation is out of this world.
