The Big Five
Early this morning I was sitting on my bed with my beloved daughter who is now a beautiful 6 month old. She is playing with her pony that Shelley brought her back from Wyoming (because every girl needs a pony). I am reading. I glance at her and a huge amount of white foam is coming out of her mouth! I start freaking out thinking my first born is having a seizure. She had stuck her hand in her mouth (chewing it) so far that she made herself start throwing up! I still have not recovered from this moment.
I just turned white writing out the story.
Keep us in your prayers this week. We are off to Carolina Creek to lead worship and then I am speaking at Camp Tejas for
River of Life Community Church. I know I won't make it through my talks without singing that childhood song atleast once.
Sing it with me:
"I've got a river life flowing out of me
It makes the lame to walk and the blind to see
Opens prison doors and sets the captive free
I've got a river of life flowing out of me
Spring up, O well! Gush! Gush! Gush! Gush!
within my soul
Spring up, O well, splish, splash!
and make me whole
Spring up, O well
and give to me
that life abundantly!"
So, now that I have said nothing spiritual or even really worth reading, I thought I'd talk to you about the
The Big Five.
Denbigh and I are confessed Mexican food snobs. There is only one place that meets all the criteria (besides Emily's Mama who makes a mean taco!). That place is Garcia's in Buda, Texas. It is in an old restored home on mainstreet. All the waitresses know us by name and comment each week we go there how Laomai has grown in the past seven days! What are the big five you ask.
Let me break it down for you.
1. Good beans. You can hardly find authentic, home-cooked beans.
2. Good rice. Rice that is not drowned in that weird red sauce and actually tastes like a Mexican made it.
3. Chips. Thin. Crispy. Salty. Warm.
4. Salsa. Must be puréed and have a little kick!
5. Dr Pepper must be perfectly blended and on tap...not in a can. (Garcia's also serves the best sweet tea!)
The best thing...you can easily leave there for 15 bucks for 2 people.
So, my props for my talks are a box cutter, some black face paint, and a pair of snake skin shoes. I am going to try to record some of it so that I can put it on You Tube. I truly feel like the Spirit of God desires to bring healing and revival to this group of women.
Please keep us in your prayers!
Our sessions are at 9:15 and 4:15 on Saturday.
Pray that God shows us the land we are to buy and provides the money to get it. I am praying many blessings on you. Spring up, O Well, within your soul!!!!! (Rebecca, did you have that baby yet?)
