Swimming Upstream: “Who’s True Confessions!”


Okay. Okay. So you want the truth, huh? We’ll, it ain’t pretty, but here it is:

You see, I’ve been a pizza delivery driver for the last eighteen months. That’s right!

I know. I know. My about states I am a businessman, real estate agent, dreamer and more. And also, my web site lists a bunch of glamorous sounding jobs that I’ve held in the past. Repeat: the past.

But right now, I’m a pizza delivery driver. Period.

And you might as well know the whole truth, okay? That is, if you can handle it.

I don’t listen to Hillsong Worship music while I’m driving my truck on pizza deliveries. In fact, no Christian music at all.

“Oh no!” you are probably ranting at this very moment. “What pagan stuff do you listen to on your MP3?”

Sarah Brightman, Andrea Bocelli, Yo Yo Ma, Sissel, il Divo, Irish Tenors, Mario Frangoulis, Placido Domingo…and a smidge (an itsy-bitsy smidge) of Bob Seger (Like a Rock), Neil Diamond (Pretty Amazing Grace) and Allison Krause (Gone, Gone, Gone).

There you have it. Whew! I feel better. What about you?

And you shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free. (John 8:32)

Swimming Upstream appears at this blog site on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. It’s  a little of this and a little of that, all written  to encourage and exhort believers in their Christian journeys.

  1. For those who are pizza delivery drivers, this post was written with a “tongue-in-cheek” wit, not as a put-down of pizza delivery drivers.

  2. Oh no, Larry, say it ain’t so! Pizza and Andrea Bocelli! Well, I guess it isn’t so bad. The music of Bocelli can soothe the heartburn from any pizza with all the toppings!

  3. i love neil diamond. seriously! i buy my dad the cds all the time… and then take another home for myself… love his song “walk on water”…. my friends mock me (lovingly!) for liking him… isnt the usual thing someone in their 20’s and now 30’s listen too :o) esp with the other stuff i have a leaning towards (linkin park, evanesence, pillar etc)

  4. Marianne and fireball3316,

    Thanks. There is something about classical singers that really touches my heart.

    And Neil Diamond, I just like him, too.
