I don’t have any eloquent words — just a reminder to myself to check the tree in my own face before throwing a fit about someone else’s bit of sawdust.


A meager submission to a carnival… check it out to read some people who are actually writing!

  1. Bridget says:

    All I can say to that is… WOW!

    Great reminder for sure. Thanks, Lainie.

  2. Aw, short and sweet and so unlike anything I do with words. How do you do that? Baffling.

  3. jasonS says:

    Hey, great reminders are great for a reason. I can always use this message. Thanks Lainie.

  4. We often think we’re quickest to condemn the outright evil people, but so often we’re also quick to condemn the ones who are “trying” when we think their trying is nothing but self-righteousness. I found myself immediately wanting to condemn the church of this sign, but I don’t need to condemn them either. It’s too easy to be intolerant of the intolerant. So ironic.

    Your post will speak volumes to us today. Thanks for sharing this.

    This speaks words enough.

  6. HisFireFly says:

    It doesn’t take many words for you to make a very sharp point! Well done!

  7. I loved the church sign!!! And also your remark about the tree in our face!!

  8. That sign is awful … please tell me a church didn’t actually do that.
    Your use of it and the few words is excellent … glad you did that!

  9. Steph says:

    Whoa. That sign says it all.

  10. Amazing what’s “out there.” Made my eyes twitch and my brain spin around while I read that. Good thing I wasn’t driving past it; the distraction would have got me in trouble!
