Got Scrap?!?!?

A scrap metal recycling center opened up the road a few miles from our home.  They have a big sign at the end of the road on the fence that says,
 "GOT SCRAP?".  
Right as you get to the sign, just for a couple of seconds, there's a telephone pole that hides the "s" and here's what you read.....

I get a chuckle out of it each time I see it.

When Pappy and I went by there yesterday, I told him it reminded me of these verses of scripture......

Luke 13:6-9
He spake also this parable; A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard; and he came and sought fruit thereon, and found none.
  Then said he unto the dresser of his vineyard, Behold, these three years I come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and find none: cut it down; why cumbereth it the ground?   And he answering said unto him, Lord, let it alone this year also, till I shall dig about it, and dung it:  And if it bear fruit, well: and if not, then after that thou shalt cut it down.

Sometimes we have to go thru having a lot of dung thrown on us in order to make us grow and mature!!!

My blogging friend, Ms. Becky at Rise Above Your Limits referred to it in a previous post I did along these lines as....
Mature Manure!!!

Isn't that we should all strive to be?!?!

Happy Wednesday, Sweet Readers!!!

In HIS Most Precious Love....and with mine!!!
