Lint

Yesterday I was reading my favorite homekeeping website, Flylady. Our task was to clean our laundry rooms, including the dryer vent. Failure to clean the dryer vent can result in fire. What!?! In order to clean the vent, one needs a special cleaning kit. So I went to the store and bought one, cleaned the dryer vent (yes, it was pretty linty) and checked that off my list. I am sure DH and the puppies all slept better last night knowing that the probability of a house fire had been greatly reduced.

Have you ever noticed how many things in our lives come with warnings? Nearly everything actually. You know, like "Caution: Improper use of this product can cause harm or death." Do you read every warning label? I do not.

There is one thing where the warning label would be opposite of what we normally see. The label on our Bibles would way "Caution: Use of this product will lead to joy, peace, and life eternal!" That is a "warning" label I can live with! How about you?

nice! if you look at the warning sheets that accompany prescription meds that are supposed to help you, you will discover a greater risk too one's health. it's a catch 22:)

What a great post! Very insightful!
yeah, Bud, I always read the "side effects" on prescription drugs, too. Sometimes, I don't take them then.
Best regards,

Good one Linda. Like your spin on labels. We can save ourselves lots of heartache if we read our Bible first.

At first I was like "lint?" then I read what you wrote and it put a smile on my face! I don't read warning labels very often... sometimes when I do read them I ask myself, "I wonder what happened to make them put that on there?" eek!
