That is quite a question. I know that I matter to many people and God. Perhaps that should read God and many people. I know that I matter to God. He sent His only Son to die for me and I accept that with gladness.
However, the other day I was visiting with a couple of ladies and of course, talking. We hit a great many subjects, but what got my attention was when I chimed in on the conversation, they went back to their comments. You know what I mean.
" So, Sally, how are the kids?"
" Oh, doing well, Nancy."
" How are you're kids?"
" Oh, the other day my daughter called and told me the cutest story about her daughter. Breath.
" Nancy did you say you were going to Branson next week?"
You will notice that when I introduced my daughter, they went to another subject.
Perhaps, I was not supposed to introduce family names. Anyway, the conversation continued.
" Nancy, where have you worked?"
"Oh, no where, acutally. I was a stay at home mom when the kids were little, and now, a stay at home wife." Nancy said.
" Where did you work, Sally?" Nancy asked.
" Oh, I was an admin til I retired and now, I do part-time secretarial." Nancy replied.
" What did you do?" and they both looked at me.
" I was an alligator trainer." I replied.
" How nice."
" Nancy, where would you like to go for lunch?"
I held my tongue.
We went to lunch at a nice little restaurant where they serve specialty sandwiches.
Mine was a tongue sandwich.That way, I could talk with tongue in cheek.
