Not fair

My sister went to Las Vegas and touched Billie Joe Armstrong's hand and I am jealous.


Drina-diva, this is utterly off topic, but...

In the book THE RAGAMUFFIN GOSPEL, Brennan Manning tells the story of a man who had sinned greatly.

He repented. He wanted healing, so he went to the LORD, and said, "Lord, they won't let me in because I am a sinner." To which the LORD replied, "What are you complaining about? They won't let Me in either."

"I stopped beside a church house/ Where the citizens liked to sit/They say they want the Kingdom/But they don't want God in it"---U2 & Johnny Cash, "The Wanderer"

Kid, that has to be one of my favorite books, and even though it's been a few years since I read it, I always remembered that anecdote. How true it is!

Drina-diva, I've never read the book; the story was inserted in our church bulletins Sunday.

Grace and Peace, Kid Charlemagne

Allez à la bibliothèque, maintenant!

Ma cherie Drina-diva, je n'ai jamais temps sufficient pour aller a la bibliotheque! Zut!
