Lucky number 13...
Well, well, I'm going to try a different font and size to see what I like. I will "jazz up" this blog in time, but I am just trying to get some thoughts down as they come to me.
Before I married, my name was always pretty far down on the class roll. (I sure am glad I am a "B" now! LOL) In 3rd grade, I was number 13 in our class. Everything from my locker, to my papers were marked with that number all year long. For me, it was always lucky--as opposed to the dreaded number 13! Today, my little boy (!) now wears a size 13 shoe! WHOA!
I know some, if not all, buildings don't even number their 13th floor. So, does that mean that a fifty story building is actually only 49 stories?
Tomorrow is Friday the 13th. I am sure there will be stories of how unlucky the day is supposed to be, but I will be quietly smiling, remembering my 3rd grade year, and how far I've come to see my young man wearing a size 13 shoe!
Thought for today: To be different, I am going to open my Bible to a page; whatever book it is, I will go to chapter 13 (if there is one) and verse 13; let's see what happens. "You call Me Teacher and Lord, and you say well, for so I am." John 13:13 I really like the verse that follows: "If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another's feet." John 13:14
