Ah!
Now, here's the thing...
You noticed that I am indeed a Christian and that I am a woman.
So far so good..
But..
Did you notice that I'm a Brit?
Hence my ignorance of a reuben sandwich.

Btw, what on earth is a Christadelphian?
Apparently they don't have Google in Britain.
I'm lazy.

All born of the Spirit Christians will know what a Reuben sandwich is. Reuben, the firstborn of Jacob and Leah, the symbol of Jacob’s strength. Reuben, who invented the most delicious Christian sandwich in the World!

Are you really Christian? or are you playing religion?

Am i really a Christian?

I believe in God.
Christ is my Saviour.

So, yes. I really am a Christian.

Playing at religion?

No, im learning about religion.

Flie...
My faith is who i am. I have no idea how my faith fits in with religion. I know i try and follow Christ. Im learning about God still and im not well versed in Scripture but i have accepted Christ into my heart totally and utterly. I pray regularly. I talk to Him all the time.

I know i worship God.
I know i love God.
I have, and continue to, confess my sins.
I am broken, imperfect, a sinner.

Christ takes care of all of that.
A gift.


So yeah im a real Christian.
Led by my faith in God.
I just dont know Scripture (well)

Just had my staples removed....
Through all of this I only cried once.
But that, I cried like a baby.. it was just.. enough.

I'm tired

I feel so fragile right now. Afraid to crack.. I'll shatter



My leg will heal.
It has a surgical rod.. support.
I will heal.
I have God.

No more bikes, either.

And while we're at it, you should probably not ride a bus, you may fall off that too.

This is where I'd usually tell you to stay in the kitchen, but with your track record, you should probably stay away from electrical appliances, and sharp knives.

There’s nothing to worry about. Storyteller said she was British...so she’s probably still using flint knives and stone tools in the kitchen.

And tin openers.

I cut my finger on one.

I’ve seen some very pretty tea sets. They seemed too nice to actually use. When fooz visits you, serve his instant coffee a plastic cup.

I see you’ve caught TacoMan’s Canadian tick. Americans drink coffee. Chase & Sanborn, Chock Full O’ Nuts for people who ride the bus. Starbucks for those with a car. Instant Coffee for those on food stamps.
