Appealing Wisdom
Does not wisdom call with her voice?
At the crossroad she takes her stand;
That is making your heart rejoice,
For the judgment as to demand.

She stands and placing in your path,
Crying out at the entry gate;
Guiding you away from the wrath,
Where it is narrow and is straight.

God calls by crying out to man,
The simple ones must learn prudence;
As He speaks of His noble plan,
For the fools need to learn some sense.

Possess an understanding heart,
Hearing the most excellent things;
From their lips what is right impart,
And the righteous

There was a young woman who lived in a shoe

There was a young woman who lived in a shoe

There was a young woman who lived in a shoe,

She had so many lovers and so much to do,

Her neckline was plunging, her skirt up to here,

Her legs where to die for, her body revered.

She's everyone's darling, the drool of the school,

She teaches piano for which there's a queue,

Her fingers are long, manicured, and refined,

Her pupils have trouble with tempo and time.

Her manner distracting, her smile it disarms,

She dresses to

The picture is that of a 21-week-old unborn baby named Samuel Alexander Armas, who is being operated on by a surgeon named Joseph Bruner. The baby was diagnosed with spina bifida and would not survive if removed from his mother's womb. Little Samuel's mother, Julie Armas, is an obstetrics nurse in Atlanta. She knew of Dr Bruner's remarkable surgical procedure. Practising at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, he performs these special operations while the baby is still in the womb. During the procedure, the doctor removes the uterus via C-se

Life Investment
Cast your bread upon the water,
You find after many days;
Sending a son or daughter,
They will find it that it stays.

Give a portion to seven,
You know not what disaster;
As the wrath comes from Heaven,
For you ignored the Master.

If the clouds are full of rain,
They empty upon the earth;
Does a tree feel any pain,
When the seed is giving birth.

Observing wind will not sow,
Looking at clouds will not reap;
But the farmer will just know,
During harvest will not sleep.

You know not of your spirit,
Comes to the bones in the wo

A Dream From The Future
A Dream From The Future

When working at a college
for the maintenance personnel,
I helped in their museum
where my tasks were going well.

One night, I dreamed of entering
a room of antique lutes,
with scores of other instruments
of quasi-ancient roots.

They filled the shelves in front of me
and stretched across the room;
the atmosphere, uncannily
felt something like a tomb!

With fiddles, banjos, zithers, harps,
and anything with strings,
this old display and fine array
had not left out a thing!

The lighting overhead was dim

I changed the water for my "Baby" pigeon,
who was about to lay eggs.
I was about to pour the old water
in the sink and saw minute ripples
around a moth floating on
the surface of the water.

I was amazed by the struggle to survive
put up by the floating moth.
I poured water into the sink,
taking great care
not to let the moth go
down the drain with water.

It lay in the bottom of the sink,
stuck to the bottom due to water.
It could not float because
the surface tension of the water surface
