Great Moments in Dignity
Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God,
that he may exalt you in due time:
Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
— 1 Peter 5:6,7
I was in the car, hurrying to a meeting. My lips were chapped. I saw a little plastic tube of healing lip ointment in the console.…
And I gave my heart to know wisdom
and to know madness and folly:
I perceived that this also is vexation of spirit.
— Ecclesiastes 1:17
I am Technologically Impaired. Electronic gizmos are all a mystery to me.
We have a DVR that records TV shows and displays who is on the phone when the phone rings (how DO it KNOW?).
So foolish was I, and ignorant:
I was as a beast before thee.
Nevertheless I am continually with thee:
Thou hast holden me by my right hand.
Thou shalt guide me with thy counsel,
And afterward receive me to glory.
— Psalm 73:22
There be three things which are too wonderful for me,
yea, four which I know not:
the way of an eagle in the air;
the way of a serpent upon a rock;
the way of a ship in the midst of the sea;
and the way of a man with a maid.
(F)or there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed;
and hid, that shall not be known.
— Matthew 10:26b
We did a major remodeling on our house. One of the Hideous Things That Had to Go was a brown plastic intercom. It looked like a spaceship console from a cheesy 1950s sci fi movie.
