Of his model railroad, he relents…
Two track bakeries
And a station don’t agree,
One spur will have a reduced presence!
He ordered track turnouts,
But a bakery switch he threw out…
Wouldn’t connect at all points

To go collect her meds.—WHAT’S THIS?
He hates being “sprung on” for time,
When he thinks everything’s in line…
For their whole marriage
Nothing new to disparage,
He packs it up grumbling …”OH FINE!”

There is work of real ‘quality’ – ‘gold, silver, precious stones’. There is work which has no real value – ‘wood, hay, straw’. Lord, […]

Walking into an expensive store or high-end boutique can be intimidating. Even though the clothes or accessories look beautiful, it can be awkward when you feel uncomfortable in the place. I used to call these stores “Movie Star Stores” because only the rich and famous can buy there. Despite the intimidation, it can be intriguing to go […]

Our fam’ly’s spiritual needs,
Are tied to the Lord’s proceeds…
That is, a tithe
But all our resources are His!
