My blogging friend, Russ Towne, wrote and posted the following today:
“Of couples I’ve seen
Way more than a few
Where one is the glitter
The other’s the glue.”
I smiled when I read that
Realizing that I do a lot of glittering
And my dearest friend,
My spouse of 55 years,
Has been a source of the glue
That sticks us together
And has helped this union last.
Yup, it takes both kinds.
Thanks for being the glitter
Right when we needed it, too.
My daddy was right when he said,
“Take this expensive tax deduction
Off of my hands!”
Glitter comes at a price.
I love that man of mine!!
He’s the glue that keeps the lawn mowed
And the glitter that keeps the love growing.
Couples need a lot of both!
What Do We Know?
One thing I do know:
I was blind and now I see.
First sight – a new life –
Could such as this happen to me?
I claim to be sighted,
But can I really see?
What ideas or things
Are blinded to me?
Am I aware of my blindness?
Do I know what I can’t see?
The more I think I know,
The more ignorant I seem to be.
I thought I knew –
So smart, so clever and true.
But I was blind – unaware.
Might that be true, too, of you?
Jesus looked on the blind man.
He made mud with His spit.
He rubbed it on the blind eyes,
And told the man to get rid of it.
Wash it off in a river nearby.
Go and do today what I say.
What does Jesus ask us to wash,
To get rid of in our lives today?
Believe and follow!
Seeing Light is self-authenticating.
See Light through the eyes of faith.
To do less will be self-humiliating.
Obedience is the key
To seeing what God can show.
Then “I was blind, but now I see,”
Will be my song. This I know!
