Good Words

Leave a comment

I have two quotes for Good Words this week because they are related each other. The first comes from Jamie at Very Worst Missionary. Her insights are awesome and no-holds barred way of saying things is refreshing (though sometimes she makes me blush.) The second is from musician Don Chaffer. I’m pretty confident that this is the only song with the word condom in it that I like. 🙂

I believe Jesus has competition in the American suburbs like no place else on Earth. Everyone here is surrounded by so much shiny new stuff, it’s hard to see the Light.Here, depravity is hidden behind tall double doors, and the things that separate us from God often come gleaming, right out of the box. The contrast between Dark and Light has been cleverly obscured by the polish of materialism and vanity. – Jamie Wright. www.theveryworstmissionary.com.

I am so often deterred from my actual intent
by distractions in a cellophane wrap
And the cruel voice that taunts me when I open them up
to find just one more box full of crap – Waterdeep
