The Saturday 7 (on Friday)

I'm going on ladies' retreat this weekend, so here you have the Saturday 7 one day early!

1. We received a huge blessing last Saturday. Someone close to us called and said she wanted to buy us some groceries and to meet her at Meijer. I thought she meant maybe a week's worth of groceries and was so excited. However, when we got there, she told us to spend $200! That's a month's worth of groceries for us. Amaaaaazing!!! Of course, two hours before the phone call I was crying on the couch because we couldn't pay our bills. God is so faithful.

2. I came across this funny story this week:

Students from an advanced biology class were taking their mid-term exam. The last question was "Name 7 Advantages of Mother's Milk" worth 70 points or none at all. One student in particular was hard put to think of seven advantages. He wrote:
  1. It is the perfect formula for the child.
  2. It provides immunity against several diseases.
  3. It is always the right temperature.
  4. It is inexpensive.
  5. It bonds the child to mother, and vice versa
  6. It is always available as needed.
And then the student was stuck. Finally, in desperation, just before the bell indicating the end of the test rang, he wrote . . .
      7. It comes in two cute containers.

He got an A. :-)

3. I've only read one more chapter of Radical since that last entry. My two biggest fears before starting the book were that I'd question my salvation and that the author would tell me I have to move to Africa to be a good Christian. Check and check. Haha. I'm thankful for all the input and encouragement from everyone, though, and I do intend to finish it. Fear is my go-to emotion. If I wrote off everything that scares me as "from the Devil" I'd have to live in a hole. Although I'd probably be scared of that too.

4. I ran over a possum last night. It made a really loud clunking noise which really grossed me out. On my way to the grocery store today, I saw the poor dead possum on the side of the road and felt a little bad. Earlier this week, I found a squished frog in our driveway. Blaming that one on Justin.

5. I loved "The Office" last night. And I made it home too late from work (10am-10pm: whoa!) to catch the beginning of "The Mentalist," but the ending was amazing as usual.  Love that show. So glad to have some quality TV back. ;-)

6. I'm pretty sure I saw Justin for about an hour total this week. Monday night I had Bible Study, Tuesday night he had a game, we actually saw each other Wednesday night from about 8-10! Last night I saw him for 5 minutes since I worked so late and he had to go to bed early. And tonight I'm leaving for Ladies' Retreat as soon as he gets home. Crazy! So ready for soccer to be done!!!!

7. I can't think of a seventh and I don't have time to deliberate. So that's it for now. Have a good weekend, everyone!

  1. Wow... it is SO awesome that someone bought you groceries! That person is proof that you don't have to move to Africa to be a good Christian.
