Saran Wrap

Saran Wrap

A verse I read this morning reminded me of Saran Wrap.

I cling to YOUR commands and follow them as closely as I can. LORD don’t let me make a mess of things (Psalm 119:31 NLT).

In 1949, Dow Industries introduced Saran Wrap, a thin, clingy plastic wrap that was sold in rolls and used primarily for wrapping food. It quickly became popular for covering food items stored in the refrigerator. It really preserved the food’s freshness, while keeping odors, or liquid from spilling in the refrigerator. The hard parts were, 1- getting it cut, and 2- transferring it to the item you want wrapped, without it grabbing onto, and clinging to something else.

On Memorial Day, several of my kids and grandkids showed up for a bar-b-que.  It’s always such fun to have a bunch over, often talking over one another.  My oldest relieved her dad by manning the grill.  After everyone ate to their full, the guys went to sit in the shade and talk, the teens on their smart phones, and the little kids ran across the street to play at the park,  with my daughter in hot pursuit, to keep an eye on them.  So, I went to put away the food.  There were containers for everything, except for the half of watermelon that didn’t get eaten.  I sure could have used some Saran Wrap.
As in the verse I read this morning, I urge you to be like Saran Wrap. Cling tightly to the Word of GOD, don’t get stuck on the things of this world!

I cling to YOUR commands and follow them as closely as I can. LORD don’t let me make a mess of things (Psalm 119:31 NLT). 

Looking unto JESUS, the Author and Perfecter of my faith.

Hugs
