Baby didn't sleep well last night, I think it was teething. By about 6am I was delirious. I heard a child sneeze. "Bless you," I tried to say, but nothing came out. I tried again. Nothing. I decided to holler it to see if I could force the sound out. "BLESS YOU!" All I heard was some mumbles. I tried once more, "BLESS YOU!" Mumbles again. At this point I started laughing because I realized I was in that "you-think-you-are-awake-but-you-are-not" zone. Ever been there? Well, I laughed myself awake with a befuddled husband and son staring at me like I had lost my mind. One of them politely asked, "What are you doing, Mom? You sound like a dying cat." "Just enjoying the morning, son. Just enjoying the morning."

Dockers Anyone?

From Paul Washer

Now, I have been called by God into the ministry to preach. I have been called to preach…there is a sense in which I have been called and that calling is irrevocable. It is not based upon me, I did not make the decision. God called me into the ministry. Now, if it goes good in the ministry, wonderful. If it goes terrible, I am not going anywhere. Why? Because I did not get into the ministry for the sake of the ministry or for some benefit to myself. I got into the ministry because God called me to go into the ministry.

I love the mexican people. When we were down there in March, I really appreciated the beauty in the women's long, black hair, even amongst the small villages. Long, black and shiny. Mine is dull and brown, and tends toward the frizzy. Well, I saw in the store a small bottle promising shiny, sleek hair. I decided to try it. Brown shiny hair would be lovely, healthy and radiant, right? I used some on Wednesday before church and let my hair dry naturally. It controlled some of the frizz. The bottle said for 'best results' blow dry. We had a funeral to attend this morning so for time's sake, and 'maximum results' on the shine factor, I used the blow dryer. Did you know that gray FAR outshines brown? I was shinier than the silver bells that are out this time of year. I pray that Jesus shines in me far more than my hair color.
