For the birds.....

At work, we had a potluck dinner with fried chicken and Italian beef. Somehow, we ended up with WAY too many buns, and had over 4 bags full of French rolls left over. It was a LOT. Way too much.

Actually, it kinda reminded me of the loaves and fishes, because it really did seem like the buns multiplied, and I even kind of joked about it with one of my co-workers.

I think maybe they were like the loaves and fishes, and here’s why.

I have a neighbor at my new home, she lives in the condo directly below my condo, and every morning, she feeds the birds.

She has quite a flock that comes to us now each morning. Sparrows, robins, cardinals, sometimes bluebirds and bluejays. My cats (of course) love it, because they can watch birds flying all around, and it is great fun for them.

Well, because Alice feeds the birds, she buys a lot of bread and birdseed. A whole lot. She usually goes to the bakery outlet, and gets her loaves on a deal.

The birds really like the bread (of course they like the seed too).

So - back to work - we distributed the left over bread to those who wanted some, and I took a bag for Alice. It was really full, and actually kind of heavy.

But I figured she could use it with the birds.

What I didn’t know at the time, and didn’t discover until I got home and stopped by Alice's condo to give her the bread…

Alice was out of bread.

I didn’t know. But God did. And He made sure the birds had food tomorrow morning.

Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? (Matthew 6:26 NKJV)

This is a real cake.....

A friend forwarded me this cake picture.... And I have NOTHING against Wal-Mart....I love the store.....

Wal-Mart Cake

Keep in mind this actually really did happen. This is someone who was moving from an insurance claims office.

Okay so this is how I imagine this conversation went:

Walmart Employee: 'Hello 'dis be Walmarts, how can I help you?'

Customer: ' I would like to order a cake for a going away party this week.'

Walmart Employee: 'What you want on 'da cake?'

Customer: 'Best Wishes Suzanne' and underneath that 'We will miss you'.

STOP LAUGHING! You can't fix stupid....
