Immediately a rooster crowed a second time. And Peter remembered how Jesus had made the remark to him, "Before a rooster crows twice, you will deny Me three times." And he began to weep. Mark 14:72 (NASB)We've been cursed with a Rooster, a block to our east and outside of our Home owner's association. This stupid bird has no compunction about crowing whenever the urge strikes him. Often, I daydream about taking this rooster on a trip to introduce him to Colonel Sanders, to give him a new vocation as a bowl of soup. Mister Rooster will wake me up at 3:15 AM, hours before sunrise here in Suburbia Majoria. A few days ago, the thought hit me at this dark hour which pointed me towards the Passion narrative of our Savior, zeroing in on Saint Peter's denial of the Christ.
In lieu of being annoyed, I now have something else to think about when Foghorn Leghorn shakes me out of my slumber at this hour.
