My night last night…

So, its 6:30 pm right now, and i just woke up a half hour ago… no, I’m not kidding. I still feel really tired, and can hardly move, but don’t want to sleep anymore, so i decided to write on my blog… 🙂 Yesterday I started to feel not so good around 3pm, but didn’t think much of it, because I was busy trying to get everything ready for our YP service (which was awesome by the way!) Unfortunately I was only there for half of it… I had to excuse myself from the service because I could feel that I was about to get, ill put it this way, “very sick.” Unfortunately, I was right… I got very sick! My husband and cousin found me in the children’s class room, in a not so good state. (I’ll spare you the details!) Kate rushed me home…I hardly remember it…next thing I knew I was in my bed, continuing to “get sick”… then the next thing I knew, I was in the hospital with an IV hooked up to me… they gave me 3 doses of medicine, said I was very dehydrated and most likely had caught a mean flu bug, or food poisoning. Yuck! I was told by my husband we finally arrived home at 2 am, but I was so sick still, i didn’t fall asleep till 5am. And that is why I just woke up and slept all of Sunday away… 🙂 Wow, what a night! It all feels like it was a weird dream… 🙂 but I am actually feeling much, much better right now! Thank you Jesus!!!

I found this picture online. What do you think of this little cutie above??? I think I want one just like him! What do you all think…

I know, it sounds so sophisticated huh? 🙂 I just discovered yesterday, thanks to Rachel, that this is actually the “real” name of the drink my husband orders… He calls it a “grande 2 splenda, extra foam latte.” It’s so much easier now to pull up to the “Buck” and order one dry “Capp” please! Mmmm, yummy….

How not to witness…

So…today at Starbucks

I got witnessed to.

This has only happened to me once before… What was so funny about this time was

1.) how it happened, and

2.) why out of all the people in Starbucks, this woman chose me to share her “one tract” with.

I had a good prayer time this morning… I read my Bible… I had just got out of staff prayer… was the anointing not evident? 🙂 Did I look the most, out of all the people in there, that I needed Jesus? Don’t get me wrong, I have had my fair share of witnessing to people that turned out to already be saved… I just thought it was kind of funny… 🙂

Which brings me to how it happened…

I was at Starbucks with Meg and Kirst. We walked in, got a table and then I got in line to get us all drinks. I had been in line for a few minutes when a woman came up to me with a $5 bill in her hand. She said to me, “I think you dropped this…” I knew that I hadn’t, so I said “oh thank you, but I don’t think I dropped it.” She then quickly said, “well i think you guys were the last ones to walk through the door, so it must be yours…” then put it in my hand. And took off. Literally.

I was pretty shocked for two reasons…

1.) It had been 5 or 6 min. since we had walked in. It’s Starbucks. Come on… I’m pretty sure 8 people walk in per minute.

2.) Most people (unfortunately) would have just taken the $5 bill… I was pleasantly surprised at this woman’s honesty…

So I walked back to the table to ask the girls if they had dropped it…

only to discover it was not even real.


I then realized as I opened it up that it was a gospel tract.

Oh boy….

What makes me so uneasy about this approach to witnessing is that it was completely deceptive!!! This woman’s whole premise was that she was full of integrity and honesty.

yet the $5 bill was not real, and she knew I did not drop it.

Lucky for this woman I am already saved and love Jesus..

I can only hope that all of us find a more better approach to sharing the TRUTH with those that desperately need it…

without giving em fake money… 🙂
