Shortly after The Purging Lutheran inserted this photograph for today’s purge, I received a phone call from Salvador Dali demanding I stop trying to take ‘neat’ pictures, that there was only room for one ‘creative force in nature’ and that was him, not me. My response? To quote Bill the Cat: TTBBFT!
What’s the purge? It is the wicker basket. We used it to keep magazines in it. Of course, the ones in the bottom curled up along the edges. Those were usually older ones like Top 50 Basket Ball Teams in the U.S.A.; Log Homes and Boats; Frequent Visitors Guide to Southern Indiana; How to Paint Your Kitchen; and Gunplay. The ones hovering near the top were subscriptions such as World; Readers Digest; Solomon’s Marbles Today; Over 50 and Beyond, and Think, Fishers!
So why get rid of it? I don’t know. Just because, I guess.
Can mighty pine trees grow tall without soil?
Can luscious tomatoes flourish without water?
Blossoming flowers look great before they’re cut or picked,
but without soil or water they wither more quickly than grass.
That’s what happens to all who forget God—
all their hopes come to nothing.
