Laura: I wonder if God would mind if I told you.
Jonathan: You mean, that thing you were talking about?
Jonathan: No, Laura, I don't think He'd mind.
Laura: It's just that you know Him so well and all, and I thought maybe you'd be able to tell me for sure if He can do what I'm asking.
Jonathan: Well, I might be able to.
Laura: Well, the short of it is, I want to make a trade deal with God--so I could be with Him, and my brother can come back and be with my Pa. Pa wants a son real bad.....and that's about it.
Jonathan: (long pause) Wow. That.....that's a pretty tall order.
Laura: But God can do anything.
Jonathan: Well, that's true. And He could do it, all right......if that's what He thinks is best.
Laura: Oh, it is. I explained to God about my having mean thoughts and all. And I guess that's why he took my brother, kind of by mistake.
