Needle And Thread

Poem By Ruth Glass

What would you do without the needle and thread? They go together like meat and bread. What would you wear to cover your hide? A leaf is a little skimpy for those with pride. There would be no pattern; there would be no style; You'd wear your birthday suit with a smile. You couldn't repair a rip or a tear, for there would be no clothing for you to wear. You might wrap yourself in an animal skin; to keep it in place, you'd surely need a pin. Whoever invented the needle and thread, deserves a halo for his head.

I'M The Tree

Man, God made me
And God made you too.
I was happy—and so were you. Man, you disobeyed God.
You allowed yourself to sin.
