My Sweet Lord

It's Sunday, Y'all!

We were driving rather fast along one of the main highways in Naha, Okinawa. I chanced to see a surprising sign along the way. A Chocolate Jesus store. Or something of that kind. Can't imagine what is available inside. But it sounds sweet.

I did some googling and discovered Tom Waits wrote some less than reverent lyrics that may have inspired this store's name...

Well it's got to be a chocolate Jesus
Good enough for me
Got to be a chocolate Jesus
Good enough for me

Well it's got to be a chocolate Jesus
Make me feel so good inside
Got to be a chocolate Jesus
Keep me satisfied

With apologies, Lord.

[Please excuse the dreaded "iPhone finger" shadow/blur on the corner of this pic. I had to snap in a hurry as we flew by, and forgot to move it.]

Soli Deo Gloria!

I love that song! Tom Waits has such an iconic voice! WHen I saw this image, I immediately thought of Tom Waits' song!

Don't know the son, but this surely is a funny 'snatch'.
Sunday blessings.
