JOYFUL (trying to correct to pronunciation of her name)

YAHOO The angel canNOT help herself.
CAW-WA And this is my othah twusty co-host

. no matt-ah how se-we-ous ow topic is.
JOYFUL Carla, you’re wambling again – I mean,
YAHOO Yeah, Carla, get on with it. We’ve got some
. exciting stuff to discuss!
CAW-WA Sow-wy. We-ow (well), aftah ow fiwst day
. of west (rest) – ev-ah -
JOYFUL God, Himself, lead by example and RRRested...
YAHOO Being the seventh day, and all. 2
JOYFUL The FIRST day of rest - ever.
CAW-WA Exactwy. I am vewy eagah to tawk about God’s
. watest cwe-ation – the pwa-net eawth.
JOYFUL Ah, you do mean the – pLLLanet eaRRRth, right?
YAHOO Yeah baby! Have you been down to check it out
. yet? It is sick! Some of God’s best work ever!
CAW-WA I compwetwy agwee.
JOYFUL Totally. But we should start right at the very
. beginning. Other angels might not have seen it
. or even heard about it yet.
CAW-WA Twue, but we aw know God has aw-ways BEEN –
. wight fwom the beginning.
YAHOO But to do a whole universe in six days!
. That’s sick. At first I wondered why it took
. Him six whole days, but when I saw it –
. I got it. Mind-BLOWING!!!
CAW-WA Indeed. The enti-aw univewse-thing is
. a mi-waclulous mi-wahcoh.
JOYFUL Yes, most definitely a miraculous miracle!
YAHOO So on the first day, God made day and night.
CAW-WA In oh-dah to do that, God had to sepa-wate
. the wight fwom the dawk.
JOYFUL Separating the light from the dark would be
. a lot of work. I mean, do you know how much
. would be involved in getting that all to happen?
YAHOO Not to mention, making the whole infrastructure
. work properly.
JOYFUL I’m having a hard time conceptualizing the
. second day where God separated the earth
. and water from the sky.
YAHOO Count on God to come up with stuff we can’t
CAW-WA I’m intwigued with the thiwd day whah He 3
. cwe-ated things wike pwants, twees and fwuit.
JOYFUL Oh stop! Yeah, all that fruit looks so yummy!
. You’re making me feel hungry.
YAHOO And us angels don’t even have to eat.
JOYFUL I LOVE how we don’t have to worry about
(YAHOO and JOY guffaw and high-five each other.)
YAHOO But I’m digging this time-stuff He made on
. the fourth day. When I heard that, I was like –
. SAY that again?
JOYFUL I think I’m going to really enjoy the
. different seasons.
YAHOO But just think about it, in order to do that,
. He had to make things like the stars and moons.
JOYFUL Okay, but I’m so into all the creatures
. God made on the fifth day.
CAW-WA It’s incwe-daboh (incredible) how many
. va-wah-ities thah ah of biwds and fish.
. So many diffe-went co-wahs (colors).
JOYFUL Oh – LOVE all the colors.
YAHOO Okay-okay, but I’m all about the creatures
. God made on day six. Seriously, I mean,
. how cool are those funny little things
. with the four legs, and they’re all–
. (pants, barks and whines like a dog)
JOYFUL Oo! Or those creatures that play around in the
. water. And those funny things that swing around
. in the trees? (tries to do a monkey impression)
. Isn’t it awesome that God has a sense of humor?
. Can you imagine if He was serious all the time?
CAW-WA But wea-wy (really), wet’s tawk about God’s main
. attwaction. One of His gweatest cwe-ations
. has got to be the peop-oh.
JOYFUL Peopoh? - oh yeah-yeah-yeah – peopLLLe –
. man and woman.
YAHOO I mean, this - is just - too much.
CAW-WA Not onwy do they get to mouw-tah-pwy (multiply)
. and be fwuitfoh, but they wi-oh (will)
. wule ovah the eawth.
JOYFUL Ah, did I hear that right, they get to rule over
. this earth?
CAW-WA And they get to name aw those cweatuhs –
. so you don’t have to keep doing aw those
. te-wo-boh (terrible) animow impwessions.
YAHOO Hey! I LOVE doing all those animal impressions.
. Well, definitely naming all those creatures –
. that’ll keep them busy for a while. From what
. I’ve seen, there are a whole lot of creatures.
. They’re going to have to be VERY creative -
. (an “ah-ha moment”) Hah! Oooh –
. these people were created in - God’s - image!
. They WILL be very creative!
JOYFUL Among other stuff, too. I mean, God is
. very complex.
CAW-WA So these peop-oh definitwy have a puh-pose.
JOYFUL We have purpose, too.
CAW-WA Yes, but they have diffe-went puh-poses.
. We just fwy awound with messages.
YAHOO Ah, not just delivering messages. Although,
. that can be a very cool job, at times.
. But some of us will have the job of protecting
. these people.
CAW-WA What I have a hawd time undah-standing is –
. they have been given FWEE choice.
JOYFUL We had a choice to make at one point.
YAHOO But even once the humans make their choice,
. they have to keep choosing to walk with God,
. each step of the way. And, I don’t know,
. if I were them, I don’t think I’d always
. be making the right choices.
CAW-WA At weast God is aw-ways thah.
JOYFUL Amen! God IS always there, and He IS
. all-powerful. Once they choose to be His,
. even if they make a wrong choice, God will
. keep them. And if they choose correctly,
. they can do all things through God who will
. strengthen them, guide them, enlighten them -
CAW-WA It’s hawd to imagine.
YAHOO Doi-doi–yeah – there are some things us angels
. just can’t understand.
JOYFUL The important thing is that we all get to
. serve God, in whatever we were designed to do.
CAW-WA And that’s ve-wy exciting.
JOYFUL God is finished creating, but man and woman’s
. time is just beginning. It’ll be very interesting
. to see where their lives and journeys lead.
YAHOO I bet from the stuff those people will do,
. they will give our show enough interesting
. material to talk about for a few more “seasons”
. to come – at least.
JOYFUL Especially because they were given a free choice.
YAHOO Isn’t that what I just said?
CAW-WA It wooks wike God has finished with His cweation,
. and it is vewy good.
YAHOO And like I said, by giving these people
. free choice, I’m sure His WORK may not
. be finished yet. But what do I know,
. I’m just an angel.
CAW-WA Sah-tainwy (certainly), onwy TIME wi-ow te-ow.
. With that, ow show for today is done.
. Thanks foh joining us. See you aw tomo-woh.
