The Paper Shredder

Recently I bought a paper shredder for the church office. It's now my favorite toy.

The box said the machine would shred up to 8 pieces of paper at a time. What it didn't say-- and I have since discovered-- is that a paper shredder offers free therapy.

Frustrated about something? Run a piece of paper through the shredder.

The whirl of the motor, the grinding of the blades, and the sound of paper getting destroyed is sweet music to the ears. With the shredder, you get a passive-aggressive moment with your problems. If those annoying situations won't go away, at least you can visualize their eventual end.

God and His Word is the first place to go when you have a problem.

But the next place I'm going to is the shredder.
