I think that God is intensely funny. He jokes with me all the time and yesterday was no different. So if you were following the Facebook feeds, you noticed that I was born in Seguin (home of the largest Pecan), I lived in Arizona (home of citrus), and now I live in the land of Pistachios. Does this mean I come from the land of nuts and fruits? Some have said I am a nut. I’ve been pondering that all day.
Thank you so much for understanding while I took a day off to get some much needed sleep. Seven and a half hours later, and my brain is a ticking again. But here’s what I think is funny. My daughter has said for years that I am so much fun, that I could make mashed potatoes fun.
My last words on Facebook, were something about making today even more fun, and then I saw that it is National French Fry Day.
Are you serious?
I can’t even make this stuff up.
So, we could have contests on which is the better fry, why fries are not healthy for us or we could do something totally amazing.

This one is so amazingly cool, but from what he says in the video, you can use cornstarch to get it now, or wait a few days to make this work. I think this is safe for anyone with allergies. It is no more than tonic water and potatoes.
I am a huge fan of Monsters, Inc. I get such a kick out of Billy Crystal. When I saw this fun craft with potatoes, I knew what we were doing today.

Downloads from God – Journal Entry #11 – Death
In the last two days, I have had two people near me die. My mind is still swarming with the reality of it.
The first man did not care for me, or my God. He was not much older than me, and had a wife and kids. I had spoken to him only two weeks ago and was very frustrated by our conversation. I was so upset with him that I had a chat with God about it. My relationship with God seemed to always interfere with my conversation with him. I did the only thing I knew to do, and that was to turn him over to God. Release it and be at peace.
The news that he had died of a heart attack on Sunday night hit me hard. I spent most of Monday pondering it.
Another man that I have known for a long time, who has been ill for the last 6 months died on Tuesday. He is a Christian and is out of pain, and sitting with my God enjoying His company right now. His death brings comfort to me, and all of the church body that has been praying for him over these last months.
Two men. Two deaths.
One in hell. One in heaven.
It is sobering to think of our mortality. Death is very much apart of life, but for those that know the Lord, it is only a passage, a bridge to a greater life.
Today you will ponder your OWN mortality. If today was your LAST day which of the two men would you be.
The one in hell? or the one in heaven?
If you are unsure, then today’s download is for you. The first man, as many times as I could have told him would not have accepted heaven. His heart was hardened. And I am so grieved.
But your heart is not. Humble yourself right now before the Lord, ask Jesus to be your savior and receive Him as the Lord of your life. Believe in your heart that Jesus was raised from the dead and has the power to forgive all of your sins and confess that He is now your Savior and Lord.
Today, I welcome all of you that have made Jesus your Savior. He has been my friend and my Lord since I was five. We have had the most wonderful time together and I know you will as well.
Write this day down for sure. Your lives will NEVER be the same.
