This month I learned:
Cooking grilled cheese sandwiches and blogging are NOT a good combination. #burningitup
They guy in front of you at the UPS store may or may not be asking how he can overnight an envelope of "powder" to China and how much would it cost. (In case you are wondering - $7200). My daughter and I sat in the parking lot watching him because as you can imagine our imaginations were working overtime!
I tend to misspell spinach (which I grow and love in salads) every ding dong time I type it.
Hearing the lovely Irish music played more often during this month somehow makes me think I can get up and do an Irish dance equal to those on the television. Sadly, it is only true in my mind.
Speaking of television, (this did NOT happen in March but I feel I must mention it all the same) the Parenthood TV series ended and I ugly-cried my eyes out during the last few episodes. It was such a well done, pretty real to life program and one they wrapped up beautifully.
You can be driving (well husband was driving, so technically I was riding) along on a four lane freeway, after dark with, might I add, no cross walk in site (obviously, hello - it IS a freeway!) and out of the corner of your eye spot not one but two adults half running, half WALKING across your lane (of, again, a four lane freeway with posted speeds of 60 miles per hour). Thankfully I was able to shout to my husband who slammed on the brakes barely missing them both. They were dressed in dark clothing and he didn't see them. Oh by the grace of God...#heartpoundingthanks
Even though I did not sign up for it, I received an e-mail from Purina inviting me to their Chicks Days Event, gave me instructions on giving the chicks a good start AND enclosed a $2 off coupon on feed. A coupon! IT MUST BE A SIGN! Well, my husband apparently does not believe in the same signs as I do. Whatever. There is always next year and I don't give up that easily : ) If you want to follow someone who raises some pretty cute chicks check out this lovely lady.
Just like many of those celebrating during the original triumphal entry we, too, can have the Messiah right in front of us and yet miss who He really is. May God blow our selfish assumptions away that we may see Jesus for who He truly is this Easter season.
Linking up with Chatting at the sky today.
