Minnie Goes to Heaven (112)

(a novel continued)

Minnie took the bottled water and prayed the shakiest prayer she had ever prayed, “Dear Jesus, please, please Jesus turn this bottle of water into wine so that these precious ladies will believe in you so that they too can go to heaven and spend eternity with you rather than be forever separated from you.” She looked at the bottle. The water was still very obviously water. She stared at the water. She was afraid to look at the women. She willed the water to become wine. It was still water.
“Well...” the first woman said. “How long is this supposed to take?”
‘Jesus?’ Minnie prayed.
‘Talk to it.’
“Water,” Minnie said, “Water, turn into wine, I command you in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour.”
A bubble floated up through the water, then another bubble and then four bubbles. Then nothing. “Water, change to red wine,” Minnie commanded.
The water started turning pink, then red and then a deep burgundy.
Minnie held the bottle high, “Wow, this calls for a drink.” She laughed with relief.
“Come on into the house,” the second woman said.
They filed into the kitchen where the second woman took out three wine glasses.
“I don’t even know your names,” said Minnie.
“This is Bea, and I’m Shirley,” said the first woman.

"I'm Minnie and you've just met Jesus." They sat at the kitchen table drinking the excellent wine and talking about Jesus. Before they finished, Bea and Shirley accepted Him as Lord and Saviour.
