There once was a parrot who only knew three words: "Who is it?" One day a visitor called at the house when no one was home except the parrot. The man rang the door bell. From within the house, the parrot said, "Who is it?" "It's the plumber," the man said. "You called me because your pipes broke, and your basement was flooded." "Who is it?" the parrot cried. "It's the plumber— I tell you," the man shouted. "Who is it?" "It's the plumber!" the man screamed. Finally he became so upset that he fainted by the front door of the house. A neighbor, who happened by, saw the man lying by the front door, rushed up to the house, looked down at the man and asked, "Who is it?" The parrot answered, "It's the plumber!" Sometimes situations in our life seem to be saying to us "Who is it?" And we may be wasting time and energy in a frustrated attempt to explain ourselves. We may need to proceed on our way without trying to give every situation we encounter an explanation of who we are and what we are about in this life.
