Don't you love my new tee-shirt? I do! When my cousin, Mary Jo told me she and her husband were going to California, I asked her to bring me a souvenir tee-shirt. Then I told her this little story.....
On the first day of a new Bible study, the leader had us go around the room and tell about our favorite pair of shoes. It was meant to be a get- to- know- one- another thing. The leader started off by saying she loved new running shoes. She said she always felt like she could run faster and jump higher and had so much more energy when she had new running shoes. Another girl said her favorite pair of shoes were the ones the leader had on and she wanted to know where she got them and were they expensive. After a discussion on how we could all get sandals just like the leader's, we continued around the circle. The last person to tell about her favorite shoes was a new girl to our group. Really sweet girl and rather quiet. She said that her favorite shoes were also her running shoes explaining that she didn't run, but her shoes made every body think that she did! So funny. So true. Love those perceptions.
Thus my request for a tee-shirt from California. Now God may have a wonderful trip to some exciting place all planned out for me but so for I haven't been let in on the plans. Let's just say that where I travel these days you could get souvenir tee-shirts for about 10 for $10. Now we do have a beautiful vacation spot right over the bridge, but how impressive is it to wear a tee-shirt from the town that's next door?
So now when I wear my new shirt to the grocery store, the people in line with me will think the reason I look so relaxed and rested is because I just got back from San Diego. I just hope they don't ask me where I stayed or if I have any pictures from my trip with me!
And how exciting is it that it is a large and not an extra-large?!?!?!?!
