Pentecost.
Acts, 2, I believe.
When the Holy Spirit fell like tongues of fire on the apostles and others gathered in a room in Jerusalem.
Remember Jesus told them to wait in Jerusalem till the holy spirit empowered them to preach.

Pente means five. So 50. This happened 50 days after the Ascension...Easter.

Corpus Christi means the body of Christ. It's only a Catholic feast day, I believe...
It's a city in Texas.

So, I woke up this morning and had on my mind a list of all that I don't give a damn about:

What my family doctor says about me being "a cardiac patient".
What tests other people think I should have done on my already-tested-to-the-hilt heart.
What Trump is doing.
What the DNC or media says that Trump is doing.
What Comey is saying OR what anyone else is saying about Comey.
What the alarmists are saying about climate change.
What North Korea is threatening to do.
How high our sewer bills are going to go in Forsyth County.
Whether or not our mayor will be re-elected and serve more than his current 40 years.

Today, the weather forecast is: 100% chance of top-down driving, I'm gonna go get my car, put the top down and head north until I see pretty mountains and curvy roads. Who's with me? :)
Hey listen, my doctor was talking to your doctor and they have big plans for you.
My cardio doc gave me a clean bill of health
6 months later I almost died of an AAA abdominal Aneurysm that had been growing a lot longer than that.
So my new cardio doc is a vascular surgeon

Actually, my cardiologist is a group of three vascular surgeons. The guy who saw me in the hospital is one of the three I see each July. :)

Pizza,

I know what you're talking about.
So it's good --- what you plan on doing.
Today is your day. Enjoy it.

This is the day that the Lord has made.
Let us rejoice and be glad in it.

I woke up with a sore throat, so I'll probably be needing to stay home from church tomorrow. I have a friend at church who gets sick very easily and even a cold hits her hard.
But I don't want to be home alone tomorrow either. I might go to church with a neighbor (who doesn't attend my church), or my brother's church.

I just got over what you have. Sore throat, slight fever --- some kind of light cold.
Hate being sick with the nice weather...!

I went to church last Sunday, but was sorry I pushed myself.

I'm at that stage of sick where I don't feel like doing anything and can't sleep either but my brain is still active and going stir crazy. This is what being a zombie must feel like.

There was a Pokemon "fun pack" at the dollar store with stickers and a coloring book. My brother thinks I've reverted to a five year old, but I don't care.

Welp, I own a fidget spinner now. I didn't realize it could be so addicting. (I fidget a lot, whether it's because I'm a nervous person or just because my hands need something to do.)

I must say im very impressed with the customer service down the road. Everytime I go there the workers are always so polite, ask how you have been and all sorts, there is only one guy who will very polite but calls me Sir.

If there is one word that offends me in this world its Sir. I hate being called Sir, only important people like to be called that.

Yea, that's like "Mame", I know a few women who HATE that term.

One lady at the office will correct you, "In the south, we say 'Dear', not 'Mame or Madam', Mark".
