“Thank God for dirty dishes,
They have a tale to tell.
While others may go hungry,
We’re eating very well.

With home and health and happiness
We really shouldn’t fuss.
For by this stack of evidence
God’s very good to us!

This little poem was given to me a long time ago when I was a new wife and mother. Our pastor’s wife at the time was a really special lady, and she took up a lot of time with our little family. Several things she said and did remain with me still. And one of those is this little poem that she had displayed in her kitchen. She was not the most conventional of pastors wives. She was a godly lady, but, she really did hear “another drummer drumming.” Actually, as I see it now, she was just not afraid to be her true, authentic self. Thanks, Mrs Laura Nell Harrison, for your impact on my life. I remember you this Thanksgiving and give thanks to God for you.
Be well and happy.
