“Yeah, Jesus saves… but he likes surprises, so he always does it the hard way.”

Anthony Jay Blackwell - The Changed“‘There’s a cure…’ Linda says breathlessly.
‘You call that a f[…]ing cure?’ Heitcamp nearly shrieks, fishing the pole out of the water. Jim staggers forward to hold his wife and daughter.
‘How did you know? How could you know to do that?’ April holds her hands in front of her mouth, looking wide-eyed at the farmer.

Amy rocks her child in her arms, quietly repeating, ‘Thank you, Lord,’ and ‘Jesus saves.’ The woman’s faith is incorrigible.
‘Yeah, Jesus saves,’ Rutledge says, softly, to the water. ‘But he likes surprises, so he always does it the hard way.'”
