Regarding a spouse who shifts from belief to unbelief
Two things happened yesterday to prevent me from writing on the above subject:
1. My husband John is sick. Women, you KNOW what that means: Serving up soups, teas, and barbecued steak (he uses illness to his greatest advantage); shopping for anything and everything that even alludes to the words “flu or cold,” including FLUid, FLUsh, FLUffy, and ice COLD Coca-Cola. Also gloves, wipes, masks, germicides, and anything with alcohol — just the rubbing kind, of course. Although I’ve heard Vodka can be used as a disinfectant, readers of our local newspaper could misconstrue the headline:
LOCAL PASTOR’S WIFE BUYS CASES OF ABSOLUT FOR “SICKNESS”
(Just so you know, I had to Google “popular vodka brands” in order to write that last statement).
2. (The main reason). I’m scared to death to write on the subject hitherto mentioned. I’m no expert, and judging from the private messages received, I’ve hit a need beyond my expertise- the sum total of which is listed under number one of this post (i.e. cooking, shopping, and avoiding bad press).
I spent the better part of the last two midnight shifts pondering and praying for enough courage to rise up and just plunge ahead, but I got a bit side-tracked as is my habit when stressed, so if any of you want to know how to make your own coffee-pods like for K-cups and the Starbucks Verismo, just ask. I’ve stockpiled a bunch over the past two mornings.
I’ve now run out of excuses, and I hear the heavy breathing of the “Still, Small Voice,” so I will venture on just as soon as I finish surfing the web on “How To Make Homemade Pellets for The Wood Stove.”
