Remarks Upon Giving A Special Gift to a Fellow Salvation Army Recruit

DH, we have watched with delight as you have become Dangerous D, Budding Evangelist.

This gift, antique Samurai Boy, was probably the most valuable object in our house, after our ridiculous van and musical instruments.  It was given to Mrs. P by a woman friend in Japan, it having been in her family for decades. We believe it to be a museum quality piece.  We give it to you freely because we've enjoyed watching you grow and expect to see you become even more a child of light.

Ephesians 5:8

King James Version (KJV)
For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light:

The samurai code didn't allow them to be underhanded and dirty and dark, so they hired the ninja to do the dark work.It's all human vanity because the only righteousness any have is that of Jesus Christ. 

1 Thessalonians 5:5

King James Version (KJV)
Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.

With love, in Him, from your fellow Recruits, P&P
