A Layman's Pearls

Each aphorism is a gem inspired by Lawrence A. Weil’s grandfather’s appreciation for his first bundle of joy, his mother. He named her Pearl.

Encouragement to publish a book of aphorisms came from Lawrence’s pastor who was served up a new on Sundays while the two prepared for worship. Many Sundays passed before Lawrence was satisfied that he had produced enough rhetorical thought that would capture the reader’s imagination. Thanks go to Pastor Ron Unger, Pastora Rachel Ringlaben, and Phyllis Fitch for further encouragement.
