So I am a southern baptist. But I have great respect for the jehovah's witnesses.
I may not believe in what they believe in, but they sure do believe in it and they put their money where their mouths are.
It's the same reason I like a slew of people.
I love Martin Sheen, the actor...Lady Gaga the singer....
The same reason if I ever get mormon missionaries I invite them in to have vigorous bible debates.
I don't agree with them, but they let it all hang out, as it were.
I admire that.
Same thing with this nice gentlemen who comes by once a month to leave me those watchtower books.
He is about 65 and is always sharply dressed....He isn't obnoxious, but a gentlemen.
I really like him.
My husband always wants to know why I don't just tell them to go away.
I don't want to discourage them.
It's their mandate, to spread the gospel.
So every month he comes to my door, and every month we have a discussion.
Always respectful, always polite.
One time he wasn't the one to come to my door, it was another young man who was a bit pugnacious.
Our conversation went like this:
"Hello ma'am, are you a believer in Christ?"
I say, "Indeed I am, I"m a southern Baptist
Kid looks taken aback.
"But ma'am...do you really believe a loving God would send people to hell?"
I say "With all my heart."
He says "That doesn't bother you?"
I say "No, there has to be some sort of justice for pedophiles and murderers..wouldn't be very fair if there was no punishment"....
He says "For eternity"
I say, "Yep".
"And that doesn't bother you?"
I say "Nope, If every pedophile burns eternally in a lake of fire..it doesn't bother me one iota."
He says "Have a nice day"
I say, "You too"..
The next month the nattily dressed gentlemen was back...lol.
Last month was a little strange...kind of awkward...He didn't say much.
Well, today I found out why.
HE THOUGHT I WAS MY DAUGHTER.
When he finally realized it was me, he turned to the little guy he was training and said..
I came to the door last month and wasn't sure if it was her or her daughter....
(My daughter is 5'8 and a size 8 btw)
He has been dropping these magazines off at my house for over two years now...
(I think he thinks he's making progress, God love him.)
Anyways..the fact that the dude I see once a month didn't recognize me..huge NSV.
I MUST look different. lol.
I went for my big ole hike today.
I am going back to the gym tomorrow.
I think for May I am going to switch it up and on wednesdays, instead of doing my hike, I'll do 10 minutes on the stairstepper, walk two miles and jog one and then a 20 minute interval training session on the stationary bike .
Sunday, Tuesday, and thursday....elliptical and weights.
Monday and Fridays 5.6 mile walks.
Wednesdays walk/jog...stairstepper and bike.
Ending weight goal for may is 155.
Have a great night Guys...
