I reached over my head, pushed the button and the sunroof obeyed by closing – but not before I heard a noticeable “clank.”


The stock market closed, but not before it lost an incredibly noticeable 5.55% of its value. Sure was clanky.


I got a call from the doctor’s office to schedule my last appointment with him before he closes down when he retires. Speaking of health, if I push my body, there are more than a few clanks in it, as well.

Nothing lasts forever except: “The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God stands forever.” … Isaiah 40:8
