The difference between "true love" and the "near-stuff"

"The difference between true love and the near-stuff is that true love goes out and gets a job when she finds that she has taken her husband for worse, while the near-article hustles to the divoce court." - Edgar A. Guest

Though I'm not in favor of any lady working a regular public job if she can avoid it, Mr. Guest has a thoughtful point. If a husband cannot work due to an accident, or if he refuses to work from laziness, a wife who possesses true love, Bible love, will do whatever is necessary without divorcing him. Being careful what work she did would be important since it is often the public work places where a woman meets someone to casue her to hustle to the divorce court. "True love" never fails; it is for better, for worse, forever.

Simple skirt

Recently, I made a simple gored skirt from something like cotton twill.

True - - -

The shoemaker sticks to his last and he's right;
By divorce, though, we wouldn't be cursed,
If everyone else in this great world of ours
Would be willing to stick to his first.

Yet all is well since ruled by Thee.

"O let my trembling soul be still,
And wait Thy wise, Thy holy will!
I cannot Lord, Thy purpose see,
Yet all is well since ruled by Thee."
