The Reward for Surviving Rough Seas

The Reward for Surviving Rough Seas
We are all like sea shells tossed about in rough waters and being re-shaped in wondrous ways. But have you ever contemplated the notion that sea shells have to complete their journey through the rough waters before they get to rest on the shore? Yeah, we are ALL like sea shells and Heaven is The Great Shore.

In Praise of the Perfect Bath

Tonight the topic is The Perfect Bath.
Like many of you, I have had gazillions of baths.
Honestly, I usually take it for granted that I am going to have access to hot running water, clean towels, soap, and a milky white tub every day.
And because taking a bath is really NOT a big deal, and even sounds kind of stupid to get all excited about,
it obviously MUSTA BEEN SOME BATH for me to even mention it.

I mean, it's NOT like there's a Bathtime Hall of Fame or anything, right?

Nevertheless, last night I had the PERFECT Bath

For the sake of discussion and laughability, I offer my Bath Assessment grading rubric for your inspection:
                                              (Scale of 1-10) 
                                             Cleanliness of Tub 10
                                             Ambient Room Temperature 10
                                             Water Temperature 10
                                             Availability of Basic Items (soap & etc) 10
                                             Ability to Relax 10
                                             Duration 10                                           
                                             Really Good Reading Material 10

               Last nights' bath got a PERFECT SCORE of 70

lol Veteran Bathers will tell you that this is really kind of rare. lol
Usually at least ONE of those categories is a little less than perfect.

Anyway, as silly as this sounds, I just wanted to point out that when you really need it, even something as mundane as a bath can sometimes feel as a MINI VACATION.
Like the old advertisement used to say "Calgon Take Me Away"

Bottom line: Joy is where ya find it.
                  And ya find it more often when you seek it.

In Him,
