neither should he eat."

Thanks for posting Proverbs 27:23, I've been mulling over it in the last week, in terms of sharpening my awareness of what's going on in the daily lives of my teenage kids and covering them with prayer, listening to them etc..

oh, you hit me in my sore spot, because
i am such a sluggard. i have to reward
myself to finish any chore and yearn for
a quiet corner to read every minute.

Well, I found I had to save every one of these quotes all in a bunch. But I do wish you had put this one at the end: "Deep summer is when laziness finds respectability." ;-)
