PATCHING HOLES!

Once a young man was asked to paint a boat of an affluent man.  The young man got some red paint and brushes and began to paint the boat, as requested by the owner.

Sleeping through Life

In one of my earlier posts, I mentioned how much I enjoyed storms, whether it be daytime or nighttime. Starting with the approach of the dark storm clouds, then the lightning filling the air, followed closely by the echo of the thunder as it vibrated across the sky. The trees sway in the ever-increasing wind as the approaching storm gets closer. Then the rain droplets begin to fall to the ground slowly, building to a…
