in Houston. Another plane is occupying our gate. How rude!
complaining about me giving him the wrong time to pick me up: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eUpmQhfMZfI
about to take a shower, pack and head for the airport. Today I’m flying to Nashville, TN to perform tonight at Legacy Five’s annual Labor Day Weekend event at The Opryland Hotel. I’ll try to upload pictures and videos from there.
I just got off the phone with my sister, Missy. We were talking about Mama, Daddy and family stuff. Then she told me about a girl she works with. Missy is about to be a nurse so she’s doing her intern-stuff.
The girl, we’ll call her Sheila, uses a lot of curse words. One day Missy and Sheila were working together and Sheila started humming, ‘Mary Did You Know?’. Missy told her, “My brother wrote that song.”
Sheila said, “G** D*** that’s my favorite Christmas song” and continued with a few extra expletives. Missy told me Sheila also (lovingly) calls my sister, “M***** F*****”…a lot. Sheila said, “Now I’m going to have to call you ‘Child of God.’” Missy told her, “Don’t change. Just be you.”
I was so proud of Missy. Overtime, as she develops a relationship with Sheila she will able to tell her about her relationship with Jesus.
Who knows? Sheila may already know Jesus.
Can you tell by how someone speaks if they are or or not a Christian? Maybe. Maybe not. But it shouldn’t stop you from loving them and befriending them. You might be missing out on knowing a very interesting person. And once they get to know YOU they may fall in love with the JESUS in YOU!
Arguing with people about their indecent language is not productive. Arguing with people about religion and Jesus is also not productive.
A baby has never been argued out of the womb.
P.S. And besides, if she was humming, ‘Mary Did You Know?’ she, at least, has great taste in music. :)
Okay, so I tweaked the recipe, a little.
While at Kroger’s I went to the meat/seafood department and asked for clams — thinking I was supposed to get fresh clams. They said they didn’t have any. So I grabbed two tubs of crab meat, thinking “Clam, Crab, they both start with a C.” Then I went to the aisle looking for ‘clam juice’ the recipe called for. I got two bottles of that and saw sitting right next to the juice, cans of minced clams. Then, I looked again at the recipe and noticed that’s what it called, ‘2 cans of minced clams.’ I thought, it’s too far to walk back to the seafood department and I bet these two will go good together.
And they did!
