Loose Ends

  • Yesterday's coffee date yielded another pile of Unfinished Conversations. Friends who visited a Ugandan orphanage recently are already feeling the call to return in 2011. I wonder if they will one day decide to not come back here? Anything is possible with those sold out for Jesus.
  • The Stone Soup/Turkey Chili was perfect... as Tortilla Soup. The first batch is a base that can be used for sauces, a layered enchilada casserole, or thickened and spiced up to be true chili. An experiment that didn't quite yield Texas Chili, but that can be considered a success since both households enjoyed the dinner offering.
  • Walker (a.k.a. Twiggy) and I passed the middle school cross country runners again on our morning walk. This time we were waved at by those who have previously suggested that we had nothing better to do than stalk them. I blew the trio of giggling girls a kiss, and Walker and I marched on in our ongoing quest to not be fat.
  • The Boy has his second Cross Country meet tomorrow. Last week, half his relay team failed to show up. Hopefully, this week he will have an opportunity to make a fair showing that reflects the months of training he has put in preparing for the race season.
  • Love the end of John. Jesus meeting with the Disciples post-resurrection still leaves me awestruck. Dumbfounded. Amazed. John closes Chapter 21 with Verse 25 saying, "And there were also many other things which Jesus did, which if they were written in detail, I suppose that even the world itself would not contain the books that would be written." Ah. Having walked with Jesus, and having recorded sufficiently his testimony of those days, John really need not say anything more on the subject no matter how many other tales might have remained untold; yet, the disciple Jesus loved (a title that tickles me) closes his account with this line that sparks the imagination. Intriguing. The text of the Bible just never gets old.
