I’m starting my Three Quote Challenge with a well known quote from the Bible, I Cor. 13:4. “Charity suffereth long, and is kind . . .” by relating an incident from Pete and Amy.
Amy had a skillet . . . a Teflon skillet . . . a welcome addition to her kitchen duties. The skillet was well worn and probably time had come for it to be discarded. However, it was still among her cooking pans.
When she returned from town one day, a smiling Pete triumphantly held up a bright and shining skillet for her admiration. Alas, he was showing her a shining silver aluminum pan which he had so diligently scrubbed removing all the Teflon lining. Amy, with good grace, didn’t have the heart tell him he had removed all the Teflon from the skillet.
Moral: Charity suffered long by scrubbing that skillet, and charity was kind by Amy accepting her nice shinny pan.
I am carrying the baton for the Three Quotes Challenge. The baton was passed to me by Jacque. Seems like everybody knows Jacque, Hop over and get acquainted if you do not. She’ll become your daily fix. http://acookingpotandtwistedtales.com/2015/11/12/are-you-overlooking-the-small-clay-pot/
