I find myself spending a lot of time lately thinking about deals I would be willing to make with God. What I would give to have him take Oskar's seizures away, for instance. My car, my home, all my material possessions. That's a no brainer. In my head though, it's never a deal where I have to sell my car and use the funds to have some medical procedure done, it's more like I get a contract in the mail, fill out some paperwork and a celestial repo man comes and takes it away. That morning, miraculously, Oskar wakes up and his seizures are gone. I would also be willing to drop it off in some kind of lot. Even if I had to drive a substantial distance. I could have Al follow me or I guess I would be willing to take the bus home. These are details I'm still working out. From there, the deals get more involved. Would I give an arm? A leg? Yes. Would I kill a stranger? No. But I can't see why God would want a deal like that anyway. I mean, my car has resale value at least. Then there is the toughest question. Would I give my life for Oskar's? Or would I take his seizures myself so he could have a normal life. I waver on this one, not because I am scared of the pain, but because if I was sick, who would take care of Max and Maddie and Oskar? So far I've netted out that I would be willing to alternate days with him, or we could work out a 3 day on, three day off schedule. Whatever it is, hopefully it would be organized enough that I could arrange childcare for my afflicted days.
And Hannah. What would I give for Hannah to not have to go through what she is going through? I'm working on it. I think I've come up with some deals God won't be able to refuse, but I'm not ready to divulge the details just yet.
Does anyone know where I submit these offers?
