The Bread Crust 


A couple was celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary. Intrigued by what was behind that rare achievement, a guest at the dinner party asked the husband:

“What’s the secret to staying married for so long?”
He replied, “It’s quite simple, really. You know the crust of the loaf of bread? I love eating it. But every morning when we sit for breakfast, I cut it off the loaf and give it to her.”
Not satisfied with the answer, the guest turned to the wife and asked the same question.
She replied, “It’s quite simple, really. You know the crust of the bread he was telling you about? I hate it! But every time he gives it to me, I eat it without complaining.”

   Through wisdom is a house built, and by understanding it is established; and by knowledge the rooms will be filled with all precious and pleasant riches.
Proverbs 24:3‭-‬4 MEV

I Gotta Speak

I’m ready to speak my piece. That’s right! 

It’s my turn—and it’s about time! 

I’ve got a lot to say, and I’m bursting to say it. 

The pressure has built up, like lava beneath the earth. 

I’m a volcano ready to blow. 

I have to speak—I have no choice. 

I have to say what’s on my heart, 

And I’m going to say it straight— the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.

Job 32:18-21 MSG

Have you heard the story about the man who  woke up early in the morning, looked at the clock, and the time was 3:33? He looked over  at the calendar and noticed it was the third day  of the third month. As he rose from the bed he remembered that he lived on Third Street in the  third house. When he read the morning paper he became even more excited because at the horse races that day there was a horse named Trio in the third race.  

He rushed to the bank, withdrew his life’s savings and rushed to the racetrack. He went to gate three and sat on the third row. He bet it all  on Trio to win in the third race. Guess what  –  Trio placed  third. 

Sometimes things do not work out the exact way we think they will or want them to.
