Last Drop
Eden And Gethsemane

In Spirit, all Creation exists
And nothing is more or less
The Garden of Gethsemane
And the Garden of Eden, blessed \u2013
How sharp the differences noted
Between such diverse lands\u2026
In one, I hold a seedling or pup;
In the other, I\u2019ve nails through my hands.

Lighter Side of Life

A man was brought to Mercy Hospital and taken in for coronary sur-
The operation went well and, as the groggy man regained conscious-
ness, he was reassured by a Sister of Mercy, who was waiting by his
"Mr. Smith, you're going to be just fine," said the nun, gently patting
his hand. "We do need to know, however, how you intend to pay for
your stay here. Are you covered by insurance?"
"No, I'm not," the man whispered hoarsely.
"Can you pay in cash?" persisted the nun.
"I'm afraid I cannot, Sister."
"Well, do you have any close relatives?" the nun essayed.
"Just my sister in New Mexico," he volunteered. "But she's a humble
spinster nun."
"Oh, I must correct you, Mr. Smith. Nuns are not 'spinsters.' They are
married to God."
"Wonderful," said Smith. "In that case, please send the bill to my

Why Go To Church?

A Church goer wrote a letter to the editor of a newspa- per and complained that it made no sense to go to church every Sunday. \u201cI\u2019ve gone for 30 years now,\u201d he wrote, \u201cand in that time I have heard something like 3,000 sermons. But for the life of me, I can\u2019t remember a single one of them. So, I think I\u2019m wasting my time and the pastors are wasting theirs by giving sermons at all.\u201dThis started a real controversy in the \u201cLetters to the Editor\u201d column. Much to the delight of the editor, it went on for weeks until someone wrote this clincher:

\u201cI\u2019ve been married for 30 years now. In that time my wife has cooked some 32,000 meals. But, for the life of me, I cannot recall the entire menu for a single one of those meals. But I do know this, they all nourished me and gave me the strength I needed to do my work. If my wife had not given me these meals, I would be physically dead today. Likewise, if I had not gone to church for nourishment, I would be spiritually dead today!\u201d

Lesson:When you are DOWN to nothing\u2026.God is UP to something! Faith sees the invisi-
ble, believes the incredible and receives the impossible! Thank God for our physical and our
spiritual nourishment!
