Why I Love Eccles...

... and hope someday to be as saved as he is.

So he writes a very amusing post, that convinces me I must embroider a sampler that says "Sona Si Latine Loqueris" (though I'm thinking "honk if you LOVE..." might be better.)

Then a commenter has a little snatch of a lyric or poem that I had to hunt down.
And now I know that Oliver Wendell Holmes wrote this delightful little almost-limerick.
God's plan made a hopeful beginning. 
But man spoiled his chances by sinning. 
We trust that the story 
Will end in God's glory. 
But, at present, the other side's winning.
I suppose I should have entitled this, "Why the Internet is Such a Time Suck."
