"Lawd, Ah come befo' you mighty mad t'day. Ah want back my strength and power Ah useter have."There is a very prominent motif of God throughout all of the tales inMules and Men.Zora Neale Hurston implements God in every story which seems to be making a point that shefeels heavily that God is the center of everything. Sometimes God is being praise, sometimeshe’s angered a person as in the story from which this quote was from. Other times, God is notGod, but a person, in Chapter one, God was the name of a Woman. The prevalence of this isimportant because it gives purpose to these stories. Without a higher power in these stories,they would seem foolish and strange, however, because God is present, they seem morereasonable, although still a little strange at times.When it rains at a funeral it is said that God wishes to wash their tracks off the face of the earth, they were so displeasing to him.
