but the snails were unhappy negotiating the cactus spines

 

 

 

Semi-off-topic - I wrote this in response to a challenge to write a poem about a childhood experience of a forum contributor. She went to the outside loo to find it was crawling with snails. He big brother had collected them from the garden, & didn't know what to do with them.

 

I've a whale of a tale to tell you folk,

this tale of a snail is true.

It happened not so long ago

when Kathy went to the loo.

The snails were coming up & up,

while other things went down;

however hard poor Kathy tried,

those snails she couldn't drown.

 

Now snails have eyes on every stalk;

our private parts are private.

She ran back crying to her Mum

who couldn't quite believe it.

Sharks & crocodiles are fierce,

though snails are not so scary;

the bane of every sister's life

is brothers, so be wary.

 

I put it to music & sang it. No-one else responded to the challenge.

to which the thrushes responded "but if you could fly you would be much harder to catch." So the snali began to run just as fast as he could until he got to.....

      I am a researcher and writer at Watch Unto Prayer which I started 25 years ago. On this website there are many well-documented articles and audio programs by myself and other researchers whose ministry is to expose the endtime apostasy of the Church. Now more than ever Christians need information in order to identify and avoid the various deceptions that are in nearly all the churches.
      My husband and I attended the IFB Bible Baptist Church of James Knox a couple of years ago. We left the church after we were informed by the assistant pastor that we were not allowed to express views to other members that do not agree with the views of the pastor and leaders of the church. We were not introducing heresy but expressing our views concerning the State of Israel. We had never been in a church which forbade private conversations on issues where there are diverse opinions. This we recognized as cultlike control of church members. To inform Christians, my husband, who is also a researcher and writer, started a website on the subject: Zionism Exposed: A Watchman Ministry.

      Brother Tony, I read your reply on Anderson, I know you all think I'm argumentative but, when you don't agree.....the first thought I had is, I wish you would introduce me to the guy that hasn't sinned, maybe David, that had a man killed so he could commit adultery, yet, he was & is a man after Gods own heart, or maybe Paul the guy that persecuted and had Christians killed, or maybe Richg or Kent H, or even you ! I used to listen to personalities also when I was younger but today and for some time, my only concern is, does it line up with scripture & to me its hilarious that you think "I'm in a fix" LOL, I interpreted what we've discussed perfectly, not because I'm smart, but because with an open mind to things of God, its an easy read.

      Why is it here in 2022 that truth is all of a sudden arrogance ?
