Friday's here again and I'm joining Mrs. 4444 for Friday Fragments.....go on over and see what's left in brains everywhere. Go on.....there's just not much left in mine! Note Mrs. 4444's (pronounced Mrs. Fours) has a new button and I've managed to post it on my blog!
There isn't much left of my brain this week so I've got precious little to frag about.....but here is all I've got......
Our little town has attracted the attention of a little group of haters that I'm sure you've all heard about from time to time in the news. I have no idea how we attracted their attention, but if they were going to come they should have done it during spring break! Anyhow.......many of us have decided to give them the silent treatment since, as my niece says......and I quote......, they are filthy attention wh****. OK....I couldn't type that word on my family friendly blog! You get the drift.
One of our television stations has put out a notice that they won't be covering this dubious event, but apparently our newspaper didn't get the memo because they printed an article about it in today's paper. Just so there is no question in your mind, even though this group uses the word church in their title, they are by no means representative of Christians.
This has been a stressful week and really, which week hasn't been lately? There has been a paperwork mix up that is going to be a royal pain to redo and I was recently standing in the lobby of the retirement center where my mama lives waiting to be seen and listening to a group from a local church having a sing a long. I guess I use the word listen lightly.....my mind was a million miles away thinking about the problem at hand, but apparently I was staring a hole through the pianist. He pointed at me and said "and what's YOUR favorite hymn?" I pulled myself back to earth and said "Are you talking to me?" He was. My mind, previously crowded with anxious thoughts, went blank. BLANK. I know and love lots of hymns, but at that moment not ONE came to mind. So I said....I'm sorry, but I'm drawing a blank.
The next day I was having lunch with a friend who happens to be on staff at that very church and I mentioned the incident to her with instructions for her to tell the pianist that I should have said VICTORY IN JESUS because I sure did need it that very moment! Or maybe I NEED THEE EVERY HOUR....see what I mean? After I was out of his sight, I thought of every hymn in the book.....literally! Such is my mind!
Anyway since that's how this week is going and since I should at least pretend to be productive, I'll say have a great weekend friends!
