I'M SORRY...I'VE FORGOTTEN...

It's a funny thing.

We all avoid it and to be perfectly honest, we all know that it's necessary.

We strive to avoid it because it makes us uncomfortable.

It demands our attention and our efforts. It takes away from our freedom and our and social lives.

We wish that it would go away...but when we are without it, we are labeled as inadequate failures.

It's a "four letter word" that is usually better left unsaid, but without it we would wither and die.

When you look at it on it's surface, it seems a fine and admirable thing.

It is only upon closer scrutinity that things begin to clear up.

It seems to transend the "checks and balances" that are so absolutely normal.

It's what makes a man or woman go the extra mile.

It's what makes a man or a woman who they "are".

It's what caused the Son of God to walk the bald hill of Golgatha, and the husband in the suburbs to come home every night.

Are you a Fireman or a Garbageman? Are you a Secretary or a Poet? Are you a Mom or Pop?

Listen...

What you DO is N O T who you ARE.

Kiss a baby. Hammer a nail. Take a message. Rescue a teen.

I'm sorry, I've forgotten...

Are we talking about WORK or LOVE?

Interesting comparison of work and love. This is an easy read, but says a lot. :)

Liked this one. Brief, but it kept me guessing all the way through. Out of the box, as well. Good job!

Your writings have been my substitute for church today. I find solitude, truth and all good things by reading great works by christian writers. You are witty, plus you always bring me a good message. Thanks for being here. Love this one...super job.
