There was a lot to be said for things like the Kings James Version of the Bible. The rich, flowing language, if a little hard to read, had a sense of grandeur and reverence to it that tickled her and made the whole thing feel more alive and steeped in history and myth. That was part of the problem, though: it made God and His message distant to her, as pretty as it was, like a time-lost text she was just happening to glance at through a little bit of luck and spitshine. As fun as the language was, she didn't like that.

That's why she was unwinding from the long day with her dog-eared copy of The Message, a straight-shooting translation that dropped some floweriness and poise to make sure that the language was 110% clear and relatable for a modern reader. Some of the language was a touch out of her liking, no hemming about that, but it was clear as crystal and that was what was important. It helped the idea of religion stay fresh, close, and most importantly interpretive. It reminded her that despite all the airs, as it says, "God means what he says. What he says goes. His powerful Word is sharp as a surgeon's scalpel, cutting through everything, whether doubt or defense, laying us open to listen and obey. Nothing and no one is impervious to God's Word. We can't get away from it-no matter what." Hebrews 4:12.

It was a pretty day for steeping the old brain in the Word, she reckoned, though she wouldn't mind some company. The green grass and sparkling sun was inviting everyone to come out and see nature's splendor in all its glory, and she'd love to share it with someone. It'd help keep her mind off poor Shelley.
