Sacraments [ pt. 3 ]
Louisville almost came and went without notice. Intent on the road and missing signs for food and fuel he caught the last one for 32 miles. Lucky timing too, because when he looked down the gas light was on and the gas gauge was nervously twitching of off the empty needle. Running on what had to be fumes he up to pump twelve at the flying J just south of Knoxville TN. On the way in he noticed an RV posted by the old defunct pay phone and the vacuum. While he started pumping his gas he noticed a scripture on the back of it, and below a design of an open bible.
The passage read;
“In the beginning was the word of god, and the word was with god, and the word was god. John 1-1”
To exhausted he couldn’t even place any interpretation or meaning. He just looked down and repeated it a couple more times and walked into the store to pay for gas and grab a 2 for 2.22 hot tog off the rollers. He handed his debit card to the clerk and Next to the cash register was a pile of Key chains. Some had names and some has sparkle horses and different cartoons, but in the middle of the rack there were ones with quotes on them. He reached out and grabbed the one nearest his reach to read the tiny print.
“Fear not, for I am with you” Isaiah 41:10.
His eyes widened slightly and he smiled with a quick exasperated deep breath and told the cashier he wanted to add the key chain to his tab. Twisting his keys around his new charm, he got back in his car and headed further south towards HWY 40 and Ashville, NC. A little more light-hearted he started through the mountains and into the grey clouds of drizzle and towards the Carolinas. Directly into the bible belt.
