Vanishing Stale

I had the privilege of traveling down to Cincinnati to visit my sister on New Years Day. My sister was throwing a party and I looked forward to the joys of spending time with my sis and her roomie, Sarah. The party went well with much laughing and talking with new faces. Matt, Tara and I played Pirates of the Caribbean Life and we played a white elephant-type game for presents. The game became quite lively with a few key presents being fought over. It was fun.
Around 5pm the party had died down and most of the guests had left. Sarah, Jes, Matt, Scott (Sarah’s boyfriend) and Megan remained.
“Want a sandwich?” Jes asked me knowing that I had not eaten lunch [or breakfast for that matter].
I happily received the offered tuna sandwich on Rye.
After getting a few good bites of sandwich, Sarah asked for a bite.
I was in the process of finding a new music selection, so I tossed my response to her over my shoulder, “No prob. Have as much as you’d like.”
Sarah took a bite.. “Oooo… the bread’s hard.” Came her quiet comment.
When I returned to my seat after happily discovering a Josh Groban CD guess what I discovered…
the parts of the sandwich that were the softest remained on my plate.
Sarah’s selflessness is amazing.


Have you ever thought that the all-sufficient Savior has promised those who walk in blind faith more than our minds can ever comprehend? That the only True Savior renews our minds, even when we feel most useless toward His Kingdom work? The Lord of all dares to touch our hearts, even as we stumble to find obedience. Oh how this soul wishes we Christians would embrace His Truth! And that the world would be different because of obedient hearts. Lord, change me. Lord, change us. All for Your glory. ---------- I am a Jesus-follower, a Homemaker, a Wife of the best man EVER, a Mom of 4 wonderful girls, a missionary in Africa, a Friend, an Encourager, a Seeker of integrity who is unsatisfied with a mediocre walk in Christ, and Blessed beyond any words that I could ever express. Thanks for being interested in my little slice of the world.
