Then he talked about Lawrence (?) of Arabia -- some book he wrote, I think -- and how he gathered up all the nomads, crooks and bums in the desert to be in his army. He had to take them into a town one time where they all stayed in a hotel. At some point, the hotel manager went to Lawrence and told him his "army" was tearing up his hotel. Lawrence went to the rooms to see what was going on, and his people were tearing the faucets out of the walls. They told Lawrence that they were going to take the faucets to the desert so they could have all the water they wanted. Lawrence, of course, explained that you had to have a WATER SUPPLY in order for the water to come out of the faucet.
The point is that if you aren't teaching the truth from the Bible, then you are a "faucet in a desert" because you don't have a "water supply". Remember, he is talking about being a leader or Elder in a church.
Also, I didn't get out of bed until 9:00 this morning. That is very bazaar for me. I always wake up at 6 AM to either blow my nose, tinkle or both. Then I can't go back to sleep, so I get up and drink my first cup of coffee. Another benefit is my allergic reactions are much improved. I bet I took only 2 Benadryl all last week. I haven't had any at all yesterday or today. I even walked through the perfume department of Dillard's yesterday. I did hold my nose, but I didn't have a reaction of swollen throat, rivers of mucous and runny eyes.
Jerry sent me an article yesterday about caffeine and all the malfunctions it causes in our bodies. That includes chocolate. The article said that it takes a month to get all the caffeine totally out of your body -- or was it six months..... Whatever.
I am drinking decaf teas, and they are just as good insofar as being hot and tasty -- maybe even better! Here are the three I have right now. I'll have to find some more so I will have options for my new caffeine-free style. I will put some in my purse so I can just order hot water at a restaurant, and then I can have a hot drink.
Gotta find something to make so Phylly can do the fitting on me tomorrow while she is here. She is going to start sewing her red linen Vogue dress together.
