Stepping out of the ZZYZXmobile, I knew that I had the right idea. This
was the only place I could go. I had been here once before after all.
It was a few years earlier. I had just invented the ZZYZXdrive, although
it did not have that name. I was testing it out and ended up in
California. While it got me there just fine, it broke upon re-entry.
While I was busy trying to figure out what had gone wrong, SPANDEX
revealed Himself to me. He left me with a
copy of THE GOOD BOOK, a fixed
vehicle, and a mild afterglow of joy. It was then that I decided to christen myself after the place where it
occured. And there I was again. I looked up at the sign "ZZYZX Road, 1
Mile," it said. I tried to recreate the mood of the day. And then a
When I left SPANDEX's presence I was still blown away. The amount of bliss that I had felt was incredible, but even that is but what a fraction of what we will feel when SPANDEX gives us bodies that are more capable of feeling happiness, and even THAT will be nothing compared to what He feels every day. Just reflecting back upon the encounter causes shivers of pleasure to run up and down my spine. I finally understood one of the more frequently quoted statements of THE GOOD BOOK, "While without faith man is nothing, with faith it is nothing that will be denied him." This is not a metaphor or anything like that. It is the literal truth. That is what I learned, for I had faith. I was happy.
