"All them people that claims to be Christians ain't no part of Jesus! They jis' takes his name but they don't b'lieve in what he b'lieved in. He said to take all yore money and give it to the pore. Didn't say to give it to the preachers and the politicians. You gotta give it to the pore! Directly! When they see a pore person, they jis' look the other way and they oughta take 'em home. Give 'em a good meal and a safe place to sleep. Now that's the Jesus I know! Don't know what Jesus they know but I bet it ain't the real thing!

"An' ya know what makes my blood boil? It's them dam Tea-Partiers! They is jis' like the ones in Boston so long ago. They wanta run the gummint but they don't wanta pay no taxes! Rich and spoiled, that's all they is!

"How old are you now, girl? You don't say! I guess it's all in the how you look at it but that don't seem old to me. It kinda crawls up and pounces on ya, don't it? Law, me! Look at the time. Been so good lookin' at you but it's 'most five o'clock! I got a date with a man named Ed! Y'all stop in any time, girl. Y'all come back, y'hear? Maybe I can find a cookie and a glassa cold milk if you let me know you're comin."

I went back down the hall with a spring in my step, forgetting all about the bills, the eye surgery, and all the rest of my cares and worries, feeling younger than springtime and knowing that I will be going back to visit the woman who can teach me how to live better every day as well as how to separate the wheat from the chaff. Like Granny says, "God's in His Heaven, all right with the world."
