Marvin Knows
by Mike Aragona
First published online on 2005 September 08.
Editor’s Foreword
Do you want Marvin to show you the light?
SFFH: Article

Marvin waited patiently for the service to end. The Lord waited for no man, he knew. But Man must always wait for The Lord. Marvin was used to waiting and it didn’t bother him at all. He understood that The Lord was a busy deity. With the millions of people on the earth screaming for his attention, Marvin knew he just had to wait his turn. And so, he continued to listen to the Preacher, wondering how close he was with The Lord.

Marvin had to suppress a chuckle. He just couldn’t help but snicker whenever he watched them from the pews, or the benches, or chairs. Pastors, Preachers, Priests, whichever denomination they were, they all worshipped the same God. Only, they were too full of themselves to acknowledge it!

That’s why The Lord spoke to Marvin. Marvin’s mission was to seek out all those who didn’t understand and reveal the Truth to them. He loved his job. He considered himself their personal chauffeur to The Lord. He knew he could make them see the Way, the Truth, the light. Whenever he came to them, their faces would always light up with knowledge as their eyes opened wide, reflecting his headlights.

Canville Virtual Village
Under Reconstruction...
There was a time when the streets were alive with the sounds of children playing, friends gathering, and adults conversing. When the heat of summer met its match in an ice cream bar delivered by the friendly chap in the neighborhood ice cream truck. Or, a rubbery hose would refresh children with the spraying of water into the air. Oh, how times have changed. Where go the little children now? Where now gather the teens? Where chatter away the adults all afternoon? And, alas, what has become of the lonesome ice cream man?
