“Don’t think you have to put on a fund-raising campaign before you start. You don’t need a lot of equipment. You are the equipment, and all you need to keep that going is three meals a day. Travel light..."
Matthew 10: 9-10
My family enjoys traveling. It took some convincing, but now my husband seems to enjoy flying to our various destinations as much as the rest of us. That said, something bizarre typically happens on our trips, by car or plane.
What's a girl to do? Is it my fault I was born beautiful? To hear my parents talk, you'd think it was a sin.
Enough was enough! I didn't choose gorgeous hair or skin like porcelain.
So, when the first good-looking guy came along with an invitation, I was outta there!

37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ 40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
My husband and I were packing to go on a short trip. As we were gathering our clothes to take, I got into a heated argument with the pants hangers.
Loser! Failure! Freak!
