A pleasant visit

A good friend told me that she listens to various speakers while she is exercising. I thought that this was a great idea except I have no smart phone, only an iPod so that isn't an option for me. I still liked the idea of hearing from speakers who have already challenged me through their writings so I decided that listening to them on the laptop while I sew would be the next best option.

So my sewing afternoons are now filled with the voices of Francis Chan, Graham Cooke, Heidi Baker, Christine Caine, Shane Claiborne, and others.

I may, however, be spending too much time listening to them.

The other night, I had a dream and into my dream walked Christine Caine. Apparently she was speaking somewhere locally and needed a place to stay so she stayed with us. I shared this with my friend and she said that it wouldn't be a terrible thing to spend some time chatting with Christine Caine and she hoped that it was a pleasant experience.

It was, but it was also a bit awkward. Somehow I didn't know she was coming. My best guess is that The Good Doctor volunteered our home during some meeting but forgot to tell me. It happens all the time. Then I have to act all pastor's wifey while trying to slyly throw the mislaid socks under the couch or the dropped Cheerios into the seat cushions. So while I was happily chatting with Christine Caine, I was also playing hostess to my entire extended family because we were also having a family reunion at the same time. I kept having to explain who she was and why she was here.

But other than that, yes, we did have a pleasant visit.
