Because of my joke about Paul's old man being crucified with Christ, Dave Molina says I have a case of raptureitis. I think he is right. See photo below, when those nice young men in their clean white coats recently came to take me away, to the funny farm, where life is beautiful all the time, to the happy home with trees and flowers and chirping birds.
Symptoms of raptureitis can come on suddenly and severely, typically after reading the Five Doves and Rapture in the Air Web sites. They consist of drooling, shaking, shouting, the flapping of the arms, and jumping up and down claiming to be practicing. Symptoms also include extreme joy and ecstasy.
They release me whenever symptoms subside, but they soon return, and then those nice young men in clean white coats come to take me away again.
But I will have the last laugh. One of these days, soon I believe, I will not go with those nice young men in white coats. I will go straight up, to meet the Lord in the air, and I will forever be with the Lord, the Bible says. And there, for sure, life will be beautiful all the time!
(That is not my photo above. I found it at Google Images. I am much younger than that old coot, more handsome, and have no beard!)
