"Something I said fifty years ago"
When I was a boy of about ten, eleven, or twelve, one Saturday a friend
and I were walking back from the picture show downtown. It was at
least three miles. In those days it wasn't uncommon. All of
a sudden...out of the blue I told my friend that I believed I'd be
alive when Jesus came back. We hadn't been talking about such
things. It just popped into my mind. He looked at me and
said he believed that he would too.
That was nearly fifty years ago. I still remember that short
conversation. I have no idea what that movie was, or what we
talked about later.
