I was grown and married before I realized that I could have a “whole” napkin at the dinner table.
There were six of us at the table and my mother was very frugal, thus, the napkins were always torn in half. Half a napkin was actually enough and maybe everyone in the world used a half.
Often half is plenty –half a piece of cheesecake –half a football game –half a million dollars, etc. The queen of Sheba told King Solomon, “the half has never been told” of your riches.
It has been said that even half of heaven or half of hell would be endurable. I disagree, of course.
I want ALL the glories of heaven.
I want to see his blessed face and spend ALL of eternity with him.
The half has never yet been told of his love for us.
