I was so excited to reconnect with an old college friend and roommate yesterday. (She joined facebook and added me as a friend.) We’d written a couple letters to each other over the years, and I have a pic of two of her girlies on my fridge (she now has three. how fun!), but we’d lost touch the past three years or so.
She married the guy I was dating when I met Gabe. (hence the old flame title) Their 10-year anniversary is today. Happy Anniversary, Dan and Sarah!
All that to say that Dan was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease several months ago (the same disease Bethy’s hubby Stew has). It’s a pretty bad case. Would you pray with me for healing for my old friend? Thanks guys!
Okay, so the Chipotle story still makes me want to yell, but here goes. The Columbus Dispatch ran an article 2 days ago entitled, “Free Burrito to Ease Your Gas Pain.” Muy clever, eh? From 5-8 pm, all 30 Columbus stores were offering 1 free burrito (or tacos/bols) per customer. Greedy me is planning how I can get a burrito for all 5 of us at one store, then hop over to another one and get 5 more…
We got to Easton right before 5:00, and there were already about 300 people in line. Seriously. 300. If you’re familiar with the Easton Chipotle, the line went through the store, out the door, down one store front, along the side, then down the whole back.
We stood there for 15 minutes. Then it began to thunder. Then rain. Then pour. We had no jackets, no umbrellas, and we were a good 90 minutes from getting inside the restaurant. We waited 3-4 minutes then ran to our van sopping wet and cold. Grrrr…
Gabe wanted to try another one. We stopped at home for jackets, umbrellas and Skittles. I knew when we were still a couple miles from town that we were in trouble. Traffic was already backed up. We finally get there. Another massive line. Still pouring down rain. Gabe had a meeting at 7:00. We went home and ate hot dogs. Grrrr… We wasted over an hour (and still had gas pains!).
They did say that anyone in line at 8:00 would get a coupon for a free burrito, but Gabe was gone, and the thought of dragging all 3 girls to Chipotle, parking a million miles away, all for a couple (scrummy, delicioso) burritos…well, I was still mad and didn’t feel like going.
On a different note (shocking that I would flit around so much from one thing to another), an idea popped into my head yesterday and I can’t get it out. (which is unfortunate because I need to be thinking about the opposite sex for my talk tomorrow) Without going into detail, I’d really, really like to write some fun commentary/Bible study stuff sometime. Like Bible exposition of specific books (of the Bible) for busy women who aren’t overly scholarly-minded (me). I have a couple Bible books in mind, but let me ask you this. Let’s say you could read a fun book that explains a book of the Bible in a fun, easy-to-understand way, that makes you think and makes you hungry for God and His Word.
Which book of the Bible would you love to dig into first? (and why?)
Have an awesome weekend!! And if you’re up at 8:45 a.m. tomorrow and think to pray for me, oh, I’d be soooo grateful! Hugs and lovin’!!
