The Worldly hope men set their hearts upon
Turns ashes-or it prospers; and anon,
Like snow upon the desert's dusty face
Lighting a little hour or two-is gone. Rubaiyat Of Omar Khayyam
Don't these three girls look like hip, with it, cool chicks? The play we went to last night was set in the 50's, and these actresses played the sassy gals who hung out at Skid Row Florist. They kindly struck a pose for me after the play, even patiently waiting as my camera messed up the first picture. My father-in-law would have said that these girls were way too WORLDLY. You see, he was an extremly conservative Mennonite preacher. No T.V.'s, no radio, no reading the comics in the papers. And certainly NO plays. He did not want his family going to any organized entertainment of any kind. The kids could not go to the go cart races, nor to gym, or any of the sport events at school. Not even band. All too worldy. This is a picture of Phil's parents with three of the children. It's about as far away from my first picture as you can get. But one day, when daddy was away preaching, mom decided to attend a play at the high school, and take her son with her. That would be my husband. I think she was a bit more more fun loving than his dad. Off they went, and both enjoyed it. But when dad got home and found out, he was NOT happy. The bible speaks many times of not being of this world, being set apart, so I'm not saying this was really a bad thing, as Phil and his five siblings have turned out really well. Not one of the six has ever gone astray or gotten into any serious trouble, and all are Christains. You can't argue with results. Tomorrow I'll show you some people who are REALLY set apart.
