On Saturday, a box of chocolates appeared unbidden and unsigned on my doorstep. I do not know who they came from, it is large and full of sweetness. I wondered, is this a new, modern-day miracle that Jesus is instituting, or a temptation from the devil that I must refrain from? A couple of days late for Valentine’s Day, the box’s appearance is mysterious, isn’t it?
And so began my own couple of social media reflections, and responses.
@reneerico Someone left a large box of chocolates on my door yesterday, no note. Maybe God is saying, “just get fat again?” #wrongmessagesfromgod
Soon, I got my replies:
Life is like a box of chocolates. Sometimes you just have to accept ’em. And eat ’em.
Hush you. You’ve earned the chocolates.
Thanks, Kit, that one definitely hit home for me.
A similar theological debate on the goodness of chocolate boxes was opened on Facebook.
Yesterday there was a large box of chocolates on my doorstep when I returned from the hospital. I am sure it is a sign I should get fat. Oops, wrong message for Lent.
Again my friends weighed in on the sign of the chocolate box.
And all the way from France
See how she has adopted the French attitude? This is, apparently, what pastors in France think. All of them.
So, blog readers, what do you say about the sign of the box of chocolates?
