A Touch of Irony

We took our grandsons out to eat a few nights ago to a place we believed they particularly enjoyed–a buffet restaurant.  Partly due to the unexpectedly high tab, the next evening we took them to Subway.  As Jarod wolfed down his 12 in. sub, he commented on how much more he enjoyed that meal compared to the previous night’s.  Surprised Richard said, “But I thought you and your family enjoyed ________Buffet.”

“No,” my grandson replied.  “We only go there to eat when you’re with us since you like it so much.”  How ironic.  Richard and I chuckled aloud since neither of us enjoyed eating at that particular food chain.  In an effort to please one another, we’d all remained silent and endured a meal of too greasy, starchy food and over-cooked veggies, that the famous chef Julia Childs would have called, “Fodder.”

Jesus said, “Ye shall know the truth and the truth will make you free.” John 8:32 KIV. Sometimes the truth can be unpleasant; other times, a wise thing would be to reveal it, but it always will set you free.

As the wise man said, “There is a time for everything under the sun.”  A time to speak and a time to refrain from speaking.  Learning the difference is the work of a lifetime.
