A Tale of a Serpent’s Tail

I took notes on work #101 the last two weeks at the school that never ends. The class split into two sessions, and you can find my notes on part one here, and part two here. I’m still chewing on the material. I imagine the world before sin and the world after sin.

My mind is like a huge multidimensional monitor with surround sound that never sleeps. It has no off switch and someone else always wants to use the remote control. I used to struggle to gain control of the remote, but I finally gave it back to my Creator. He knows what’s best.

This morning I focused my thoughts on Him and His content. Some call it meditation. I call it quality time with my God. We were communicating. Then I heard the screams.

A serpent is all it took to break my concentration and disrupt the peace in our home!

I love animals, birds, and fish but I don’t like serpents. I don’t trust their legless bodies. Their eyes are indecipherable and their speechless tongues are hypnotic. I didn’t examine his teeth, but I imagined his bite, with or without venom.

I tried to negotiate a peaceful solution and show him the exit, but he didn’t trust me either. He lunged a couple times and missed. Our long legs have advantages over legless reptilian carnivores. I tried to show him the exit but I suspected he might tangle with the dogs or sneak back in again tonight while we slept.

Before I ended his life, I wondered what he must have looked like before sin changed everything. Had he had legs, this morning’s tale might have ended differently. I removed his head and tail and fed him to the birds.
