Lands!! The Pacific NW knows how to dress in pretty weather. Have you looked around? If not, do so quickly. The rhodies are blooming and its a gorgeous time to be alive. I'm going to draw a winner for free dessert (think Burgerville Strawberry Shortcake ) from the people who post a pretty picture of the blooming rhododendrons in your life. Email me on at firstname.lastname@example.org or post on the QuirkyFaith Facebook page. I have a prize too for the first person who comments and knows what book I got the word Lands from as an expression.
Quirky Faith has a birthday coming. Whoop whoop! Today though I am happy to report a milestone. Quirky Faith must be official. Here is proof. Yup that's right. We hit the big time. We now are receiving junk mail.
I was out of town last week at a work conference. One night I was eating by myself at this classy restaurant with a view of the river. Sometimes alone is lovely. I ordered a huge plate of pasta. As I sat there I thought about fake pasta. You know. Zucchini noodles and chicken sausage. I get it. I like my pants to fit too. But really. The fake pasta has nothing on this big plate of cheese, meat and carb goodness. I do that in my spiritual life sometimes. Substitute conversations about God instead of prayer. Read commentaries instead of the actual Bible. I plug in a lesser and pretend I don't notice its not as good as the real thing. Do you?
I love Jesus. I think my two daughters can change the world. I think you can too.
