Update:


In case you haven't noticed, there is an additional child in our family photo. I would like you all to meet the newest member of our family. She is the pretty little 7 year old in the purple dress. "Eloise" now has a little sister. We have decided to call her, "Amelia Bedelia".

Really?....

Tonight we went to Whole Foods on Magazine,
 because today was Hubby's parents' 41st anniversary
 and his mom is currently in the hospital.

 I wanted to bring them flowers
 and a couple of goodies to celebrate,
so I headed to the bakery
while Hubby & Eloise went to pick out the flowers.

 I briefly scanned the bakery department.

 There wasn't anyone in line, so I took my time browsing.

As I turned to my left,
 I realized that I was looking eye to eye with a man who I thought looked a lot  like Sylvester Stalone.
 He turned towards the front of the store
 and I went back to browsing.

After a while I turned back to the employees behind the display case to select my pastries.

 I tried to get their attention, but they were all whispering and pointing, so I turned to see what all the commotion was.

There was the Sylvester- looking guy getting in line with a tall, thin, model-looking lady
 and a young girl (12 maybe).

Really?

In my own defense, I never forget a face,
 but I haven't owned a television or been to the movies in almost 2 decades,
 so I wasn't sure what his family looked like.

 When I got home I googled
 and was instantly looking at a picture of the same people I saw standing in line at the grocery store,
 but in much fancier clothes of course.

I then went on to read that he has chosen New Orleans for some of his current movie projects.

Well don't that beat all?

I had to laugh, because I wouldn't have even realized who I was looking at had it not been for the excitement, of the people who obviously  knew more about this man than I did.

I got to thinking (as I have been known to do on occasion), does my enthusiasm about Jesus cause others to pause and investigate further?

 When the King of Kings arrives on location
 in the midst of busy people,
 who don't know much about him,
does my response lead them in the right direction?

 I want the people I come in contact with to leave thinking,
 "Really?....I've got to find out if that was really Him!"



I know, I know...
 that last part was a little deep for some of y'all.
If you found this post a little bizarre, it's ok.
I'll tell you like Bishop....
"Just send me a chocolate cake and $50 and I'll forgive you".

Love & Prayers,
Me

P.S. Is anyone else having problems posting pictures with blogger's recent changes?

No way! I always wondered if I would recognize someone "famous" if I actually saw them in public. Lol

Blogger always gives me problems with pics, so I have no advice. :)

cool! that cool to see famous people. I saw Zack Efron because they were filming a movie on our street.

I don't have problems loading pics at all!
