Work, Work, Work

Worked my way through school.
Worked my way through parenthood.
Working my way through senility.
I guess there shall always be work.

Are You Listening?

"Everyone wants to be heard;
no one wants to listen.

"We want a God who answers prayer,
but Who requires very little of us.

"The more you fall in love with God
the more you will want to hear what He has to say.

"God is not Google.  You don't approach Him with questions, but if you will listen you will gain wisdom and discernment."

Me:  Bull oney.  I taught school for thirty-one years, and so far as I know there was never a student who had a telephone with him.

I suppose that might have been Dick Tracy in the back row holding his wrist to his ear.  Doubt it.
