Fun Reads

I heard these this morning from David Jeremiah and Ravi Zacharias. Enjoy!

Lines from an Unclaimed Rib
Oh, unknown man whose rib I am,
  Why don't you come for me?
A lonely, homesick rib I am,
  That would with others be!
    I want to wed—
    There now, it's said!
      (I won't deny and fib)—
I want my man to come at once and claim
       His rib!

Some men have thought that I was theirs,
  But only for a bit;
We found out soon it wouldn't do;
  We didn't seem to fit.
    There's just one place,
    The only space
      I'll fit—(I will not fib)
I want that man to come at once and claim
       His rib!

Oh, don't you sometimes feel a lack,
  A new rib needed there?
It's I! Do come and get me soon
  Before I have gray hair!
    Come get me dear!
    I'm homesick here;
     I want—(and I'll not fib)—
I want my man to come at once and claim
      His rib!
– The Independent, Volume 69 

If anything weakens your reasoning, impairs the tenderness of your conscience, obscures your sense of God, or takes away your relish for spiritual things—in short, if anything increases the authority and the power of the flesh over the spirit—that to you becomes sin, however good it is in itself. – Suzanna Wesley
