the devil pays

Feeling a lack of creativity and inspiration, so I dug through my
archives to find something to share this morning.

Praise The Lord

A grandmother was well known for her faith and lack of reticence in talking about it. She would go out on the front porch and say, "Praise the Lord!"

Her next-door neighbor would shout back, "There ain't no Lord!"

During those days, the grandmother was very poor, so the neighbor decided
to prove his point by buying a large bag of groceries and placing it at her door.

The next morning, the Grandma went to the porch and, seeing the groceries, said, "Praise the Lord!"

The neighbor stepped out from behind a tree and said, "I brought those
groceries, and there ain't no Lord."

The grandmother replied, "Lord, you not only sent me food but you made the
devil pay for it."

disclaimer:  caution must be taken when reading my blog.  i'm a new creature and the Lord continues to mold and shape me through his will.  older entries may seem to contradict the newer ones.  there's a pretty good chance that they do for two reasons.  first, because of my nature, as i strive for perfection, i will continue to fall short of the mark and should therefore be thankful for his grace and should seek his (and your) forgiveness for having been so foolish in the past.   second, i continue to grow in him; and as changes are made, i have made attempts to change my blog to reflect those changes. in this event, please refer to #1.   if you're interested in perfection, my blog isn't the place to be.  pick up a king james bible (yup, i'm one of THOSE people) and read his PERFECT word.
