I spent my Saturday running errands and shopping in the city this weekend. We saw a lot of things, made some good purchases, had interesting conversations, and discovered a little bit more of secular humanism's influence in America.
Among the things we saw:
Two car accidents.
The providence of God - had mom rushed along like I was pushing her to do towards the end of the day, the chances are very great that we would have been around for both of them.
People who worship very different things made manifest by the way they talk, dress, and act.
Cute old people - 'nuff said.
"Corner!" at Outback Steakhouse.
Comments among the conversations we had:
"It's not their place to judge....Everyone has a right to be who they want"
"I really admire that. It takes a special person to follow God [so religiously]."
Some amazing things about the day were the amount of things we got done...the provision of the Lord in the way of some new clothes to add to my wardrobe (with the styles of today it truly is a blessing when I pick up modest clothes that fit my figure)...mom lasted longer than I did...God gave us safe travels, good fellowship with one another, and more reasons to be thankful for the community we live in!
