Regardless of how long you work to buff a rusty nail,
it will NEVER be a candle stick. –M L Shaw
I am both blessed and humbled by any and all opportunities to be the Lord’s apprentice! It saddens me though when some fear they must be worthy, and it really breaks my heart to meet those eager to profess to be His replacement. . . thank you, Lord, for your unmerited favor!

We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools. – Martin Luther King Jr
The sky is so large
Yet we often see just clouds
He gave so much more

“There’s nothing I can do . . . “
Counting out cups of flour.
“How can I fix this mess I’m in . . . “
Measuring the salt,
“I’ve got nothing left . . . “
Sprinkling the yeast.
“It’s hopeless . . . “
Pounding the dough.
“I’m tired of feeling so . . . “
Noticing the scent filling the room.
“When will I ever . . . “
Absently placing the luscious loaves
On the counter.
“Hmmm . . .
Maybe a small slice . . .”
A little bit of butter . . .
“Here, have one. I made extra.”
Bread for today
He has plans for tomorrow . . .
“now, where was I?”
but now thankful!
