2 Random things that made me laugh today...

Get on the tube, sit down, not really noticing the man who comes and stands next to my seat, UNTIL he whips out an accodion and starts loudly playing in my ear! He then sends a small boy to poke a paper cup in all the passengers faces to collect money. Not sure he wouldv'e got alot going by the sounds coming out of the accordion!

At Wagamamas with Christina, 2 middle aged business men come and sit next to us, one has a soup based dish and halfway through dips his head to take a slurp and his glasses fall off and into the bowl of soupy noodles! Hard not to laugh as he is right next to us!

In the frustration of trying to encourage someone that despite the hard times they are going through, God is in charge and He does have a good plan and them not listening or believing it. Knowing I too struggle to see that so often. But knowing God is good and He is in charge and He can work and transform people and cares for them more than i do.
