That Spurgeon and his imagery!

It's funny how I sometimes see things wrong at first glance.

I read Spurgeon's Morning and Evening every day. Today, I was a bit startled when the august preacher wrote,

He who is in a wilderness infested with rubber bands must handle matters wisely if he would journey safely.
When I tried to picture that, I thought a re-read was in order. Of course, that isn't what Spurgeon wrote at all. He actually wrote:
He who is in a wilderness infested with robber bands must handle matters wisely if he would journey safely.
Yeah, but... my way's funnier.

Rubber bands and the desert; quite a comical combination.

Or is it the blessed virgin on the surfboard?...there could be money in this....not to mention all the new South American friends you could make.

LOL, Amy.

But it's clearly Gumby on a surfboard.

This is funny. You gotta watch those rubber bands.

Especially in the wilderness!

Infested! I am infested, I tell you! A simple camping trip out into the wilds, and I am simply overcome by these confounded elastic strings! I shall heed this sage advice and try to remove them carefully, lest I get a nasty ping...

Hey Dan,

Thanks for pointing me to the resources on your website. I found them to be very helpful. There's one or two additional issues that I've been wrestling with that I still need to fully articulate (still a little conceptually fuzzy) but, for now, I've put a post on my blog (controversy-inc.blogspot.com) that sort of gets at the dilemma I'm facing

I'd really love your opinion on what I've postulated there. I want to believe in the framework I've described to approach every issue of life. (I've tried to make it as biblically accurate as I know how)

Let me know what you think.

Thanks again for responding to me.

God Bless,
n.e.w.

gumby...I a think I see that....perhaps mmmmm... a gumpy chef

Let's try again

a gumby...not a gumpy! What's a gumpy? but....anyway...I think I'll make use of that "preview" option and check my spelling. Not to mention why did I put an "a" between "I" and "think" I, amy, think... We all know that I don't think, so...

I believe it is a chef gumby.

Maybe a grumpy chef?

In related news, we all watched the President's State of the Union speech back in January. When the camera lit on Senatrix Hillary Clinton's glowring visage, my 6yos erupted in laughter and cried, "Mr. Grumpy Pants!"

Shrewd judge of character, that boy.
