Ode to a Missing Beard

In honor of St. Patty's Day I offer this limerick:

There once was a curious servant,
who shaved all his beard for Lent.
He was caught by surprise,
by cheeks of great size,
and said "Razors are money ill-spent!"

LOL that was a good one !
an as for about an auctions, it is a good ideal,
but I'm not and auctions person,
I like sales where they put a price on the stuff they want to sale. does that make any sense ?

anyway take care and God bless

Thanks for the feed back.

Try on ebay. I have sold framed photographs for up to 40 dollars.
Your painting looks like it should be hanging in a gallery. Maybe you could sell copies of the original on ebay.

curious servant said...

I'm not sure.

I really don't like being a salesman, and I am a little sorry I even proposed this idea here.

I'm open to whatever He wishes me to do. And that includes selling painting to raise money for the rebuilding... but I'm not sure.

I have nearly deleted this post several times today.

For me it isn't about art, or a product, or even raising money. These are about praying and being obedient. I'd just as soon give them away, or paint over them.

We shall see. Patience is another good lesson for me.

CS, Patience is a good lesson, one i need myself,
and to if your not sure about doing this, maybe you shouldn't,
if it is to be God will show you the way, and he will give you peace about it !

take care and God Bless!

Funny limerick!

I don't think it's a bad idea to sell your paintings and use the money in and for God's service. I have toyed with the idea of selling my drawings. So far, I have just given them away and I am happy with that.

God's Grace.

Do you speak English? Do you think it might be a good idea, especially if younger people are on this forum, to try a little harder?
