Four Worms & A Lesson September 25, 2011

A minister decided that a visual demonstration would add emphasis to his Sunday sermon.

He placed four worms into four separate jars:

* The first filled with alcohol.
* The second filled with cigarette smoke.
* The third filled with chocolate syrup.
* The fourth filled with good clean soil.

At the end of the sermon, the Minister reported the following results:

* The first worm in alcohol ~ Dead.
* The second worm in cigarette smoke ~ Dead
* The third worm in chocolate syrup ~ Dead
* The fourth worm in good clean soil ~ Alive

The Minister then asked, “What can you learn from this demonstration?”

An old woman sitting in the back of the church quickly raised her hand and said, “As long as you drink, smoke and eat chocolate, you won’t have worms!”

That pretty much ended the service.

Currents of Satisfaction September 25, 2011

Sitting by the pool
Contemplating our next steps
No easy answers

Thoughts whirl, twist, and turn
A multitude of options
In one tangled mass

Margaritas fuel
hot, intense conversations
as the Spoonbills preen

Bridge Street Willow sways
“Shift Happens: we gain strength through
flex-a-bil-i-ty.”

Blood pressure rises
and falls, it ebbs and flows, like
the tides in the Gulf

Undulating waves,
currents of satisfaction,
wash away our cares

IMGP3849

Swimming beneath the
current, we take a respite
from the rolling waves

Gliding through silken
waters, shallow breaths burst the
surface ~ calm returns

Aah . . . that’s better!
