It's amazing what God can do with a loaf of bread and three slices of turkey...

This past week (it was a Tuesday, I do believe) I met up with a friend at a very delicious deli, namely that of Firehouse Subs. They are best known for their numerous hot sauces and giving you much more meat than the stingy Subway (though the calorie count will get ya). We were a good ways through our meal and nearly wrapping up our conversation when I thought I recognized a friend walk into the store. I wasn't quite sure if it was in fact someone I knew or not, but after she ordered her food and was facing our way, I made eye contact and beckoned her towards our table. Sure enough, it was a mutual friend of ours and she had come in the restaurant to eat by herself.

No one. Should eat by themselves.

The three of us engaged in delightful conversation for the next 20 minutes or so and then parted ways. I learned in hindsight that Stacy had actually prayed that morning to not spend lunch time alone (as she had the day off and knew she would be Christmas shopping by herself). At the last minute she walked into a different restaurant of choice then she had been planning on and unexpectedly ate with us.

While this is just a little story about how God moves in mysterious ways, it is really humbling to see what God can do with a smile, a wave, and a loaf of bread with three slices of turkey.

Xmas parties

When you throw two Christmas parties over the course of 2 days to two different music groups at church, and you only get a .231 appearance it really worth it?

Rent to Own Garages of Greatness

I've recently come into a great partnership. I have often wanted a place to store my tools and keep my car dry on rainy days. But I haven't figured out a good way to pay for such an expensive proposition. Of course I could build one, but I recently found that there is a company here in Ohio who builds these garages for a small mark-up and will deliver it ready to use.

Cincy Sheds offers these garages for sale or in a rent-to-own option. You pay 36 payments on a monthly basis of somewhere around $500 and you own the garage at the end of everything.

Why pay to have storage space at some location at a big storage facility when you can have a storage unit brought to your house? And these look classy too!


Running Start

"The worst that could happen is wet shoes and a broken ankle."
Those were the encouraging words Katie offered as we walked around the backside of the pond a second time.

On the front side of the pond was a little island, about 7 feet away from the shoreline. It appeared to be the home for the geese and ducks who flocked about the water that warm winter day. From a distance it looked like an easy jump to make it from the bank to the island, but the closer I got to the edge of the pond, the further the jump appeared to be. I definitely knew I wouldn't be able to make the distance from a standing jump but I felt fairly confident I could make the jump with a running start.

If it was just a matter of jumping from point A to point B, I would have attempted the jump with no hesitation, but there was some risk involved. Wet shoes, a broken ankle, and wounded pride were all fairly low risks overall, but still, it was enough to make me second-guess my parkour abilities.

So I decid…
