the daily purge 1-16-20



The Purging Lutheran and My Sweet Rib purchased this table but don’t remember where and don’t remember when. What we do remember, and fondly, was how useful this table was. It was a sturdy fella and managed, without complaint, to withstand a whole ‘boodle of objects being placed upon it. These would include but not limited to …

cups, mugs and candles

Bibles, books and incense

lighters, cigarettes and ashtrays

beers, booze and bottles

shades, hats and glasses (prescription)

spoons, straws and glasses (over-the-counter)

fans, books and gum

tissues, hankies and sponges

towels, collars and leashes

mail, bills and coupons

and, and and ands.

Please feel free to add three of your own items to this list




This table did yeoman’s work for my family. This list only includes what the two of us placed on it. What did The Lad and Our Marta use this table for? Who can tell? Well, I guess they could but The Lad is at work and Our Marta is in Chicago tending to Jezebel (pictured here):


After all the hard work we put our table through we just tossed it out with the trash. What does this tell you?

1 Corinthians 3:11-15

Or, to put it another way, you are God’s house. Using the gift God gave me as a good architect, I designed blueprints; Apollos is putting up the walls. Let each carpenter who comes on the job take care to build on the foundation! Remember, there is only one foundation, the one already laid: Jesus Christ. Take particular care in picking out your building materials. Eventually there is going to be an inspection. If you use cheap or inferior materials, you’ll be found out. The inspection will be thorough and rigorous. You won’t get by with a thing. If your work passes inspection, fine; if it doesn’t, your part of the building will be torn out and started over. But you won’t be torn out; you’ll survive—but just barely.


*Know this – the creative process cannot exist without the mundane.
