What's a vice?


In case you were wondering Amy, (the only reader of this blog) a vice is used to hold something while it's being welded, cut, shaped, etc. One turns the handle to tighten or loosen the jaws around the object. Now you know.

Can you see how this relates to my life? The word "vice" is a double-entedre. It can also mean:

1 a : moral depravity or corruption : WICKEDNESS b : a moral fault or failing c : a habitual and usually trivial defect or shortcoming : FOIBLE vice of curiosity>
2 : BLEMISH, DEFECT
3 : a physical imperfection, deformity, or taint

The sinful nature of man. The vice we fight against.

You are a really good writer. You should write a book. I bet it would be fun to read and full of grace, mercy and encouragment...just like you!

I love you a ton!

came across your blog via david cottle's...i really like this post, and i've been thinking about it the last few days. it's not very comfortable to be held in the vice, but in order for something to be shaped and molded...it sort of needs to be! looking forward to your next post! -stefhash
