As I was cleaning this morning, I found myself cleaning like my mom – behind the refrigerator, inside the oven, inside the microwave inside the cabinets, behind the couch, under the pillows on the couch, and inside drawers.
Do you all remember Joseph, the son of Jacob in the Bible?
Joseph had been having dreams that he would one day be King. He was excited about the dreams...as he should have been. He did what most of us do- get excited, then run and tell everyone what God has revealed to us.
Do you all remember Hannah in the Bible?
She was one of the wives of Elkanah. Elkanah’s other wife was Peninnah.
Hannah had no children and Penninah did...and Penninah, with her mean self, taunted Hannah because of this.
Penninah knew how badly Hannah wanted kids, and I can imagine how badly Hannah felt.
Thursday when we boarded the ship for vacation, I was surprised to hear an African American’s voice over the loud speaker welcoming us as the Cruise Director. Surprised, simply because out of the many cruises I’ve been on, this was a first. Alriiiggghhtt, Carnival! Lol
How many times have you taken your phone out to take a picture of something, you click on the camera icon, and somehow the camera is already on the front camera, rather than the back camera?
Or maybe you take your phone out to take a picture and you accidentally flip the camera to the front camera?
Wednesday while in the middle of an engaging lesson, I pulled out my phone, asked this student for his parent’s number, I called the number,and put it on speaker phone.
You should have seen the look of suspense and uneasiness on not only his face but also on all the other students’ faces.
Last night around 9 p.m., I walked into my apartment to a stench that made me yell, “Lord!!! What’s that smell?”
My immediate reaction was to spray Febreeze and light candles.
That worked for the moment, but about 10 minutes after I lit the candles and sprayed, the smell reappeared.
Last Thursday, it rained here in Memphis for the first time in September!
Earlier that week, while working out, I overheard the meteorologist say that this has been the longest drought in a while.
He went on to add, “and it does NOT look like any is in the forecast any time soon.” (Catch that).
While I was out and about this weekend, running a couple of errands, I decided to take the Walnut Grove exit (which is my least favorite) to return home. Immediately, after exiting, I regretted it for the very reason that it is my least favorite. Traffic was backed up....as always!
