This one has been in my drafts too long. It’s almost stale. I haven’t eaten a nacho chip since!
I just about didn’t post this today. Then I saw Andrew eating nacho chips. Knowing full well that I haven’t bought any since I wrote this post, I said to him, “Hey where did you get those nacho chips? “
He says to me, “They were at the back of the cupboard. They’re kind of stale.” Then he made a face. I died laughing.
That was totally Jesus. I wrote the first line of this post this morning. Yes, that was definitely God. I seriously needed that laugh too. Alright, now for the actual post.
I was trying to get a response from Andrew as to what time he wanted me to book a grocery order for pickup. Andrew’s standing at the bathroom sink as I call out, “What do you want? 12:00-2:00 or 2:00-4:00?” I don’t get a response so I ask again.
Finally he comes out of the washroom as I’m loudly saying, “What do you want!?” I didn’t get the rest of this out before he cuts me off and says, “Whoa, hey, I want to get out of the bathroom.” I start laughing to near tears so he phones his mom…. That just makes me laugh more.
By the way, I’m never ordering him nacho chips again. I ate the whole bag myself! I blame him for serving me a nacho chip as communion bread that one Sunday. I got the munchies and apparently there was no stopping me. I’m a weak weak woman.
Andrew should have said, “Hey, they na-cho chips girl.” I still would have eaten them. I’m a chip thief.
I rarely order them for myself because I don’t want to eat them. It works sometimes, but Andrew usually tells me to order twice as much because he knows me too well.
No more nacho chips! I don’t even really enjoy them! Andrew knows this, too, so he says to me, “You’re going to eat my chips and then tell me you don’t like them.” Sadly it’s true.
This isn’t why he doesn’t want me mooching in his bowl. He has territorial issues. That’s his bowl. And what’s in his bowl is his. He’ll share with me, but I have to have my own dish.
“And [Jesus] called the people to Him and said to them, “Hear and understand: it is not what goes into the mouth that defiles a person, but what comes out of the mouth; this defiles a person.”Matthew 15:10-11
Christ shows that the defilement they ought to fear, was not from what entered their mouths as food, but from what came out of their mouths, which showed the wickedness of their hearts. Nothing will last in the soul but the regenerating graces of the Holy Spirit; and nothing should be admitted into the church but what is from above; therefore, whoever is offended by a plain, seasonable declaration of the truth, we should not be troubled at it. The disciples ask to be better taught as to this matter.
