My brain is so tired right now. Deanne says, "Nobody appreciates it, do they?" I replied, "I don't think anybody knows how much time it takes to do this. I think they all suppose I simply show up on Sunday morning and it just kinda oozes out of me."
Years ago, a crabby old lady in the church I was serving came up to me and said in a hard voice, "I don't like the way you preach."
"Oh, why's that?" I asked.
"'Cause it all sounds like it's comin' right off the top of yer head," she replied.
"Well, thank you," I said. "You don't know how many hours it takes to make it sound like it's coming off the top of my head."
