Many years ago, my father was visiting America, from Europe, for the very first time.
He said he wanted to go with me to the supermarket, so I invited him along.
As he went up & down the aisles with me, at the local Giant Food Store, he constantly asked me questions about products he saw.
“Vas diss?? Powdered orange juice??” asked my dad (pointing at Tang).
I said, “Yeh, Dad. You just add a little water, and you have fresh orange juice.”
A few minutes later, in a different aisle, dad blurted out, “Und vas dis?? Powdered milk?” (pointing at a box of Carnation).
I said, “Yeah, Dad. You just add a little water, and you have fresh milk!”
A few minutes later, in a different aisle, my dad yelled out, “Und give a look here!! Baby Powder!! Vat a country, vat a country!”
Seen on a plumber’s truck: “We repair what your husband fixed. – Don’t sleep with a drip.”
Thought for the day
“Understanding your word brings light to the minds of ordinary people” (Psalm 119:130 CEV).
God wants to give light — his light — to every person. He wants to light up our minds with the truth of who he is and his next step for our lives.
