Big Brother Google

My birthday was recently and I was pleasantly surprised and slightly freaked out to have this Google page all day long.   I quickly caught on that these were all cakes and cupcakes.  They are strategically placed to spell out Google.  How creative I thought.  I wondered what coincidence there was to my own birthday that would precipitate  this creativity.   But if you look closely, you'll see the little sign that says Happy Birthday and it is followed my name.    Now that is kinda freaky.

I know Google knows just about everything about me, but this just made me feel a little bit too much big brotherish.  Almost makes one consider the benefits of going off the grid for awhile.

Ponder on this....

Keep your face always toward the sunshine - and shadows will fall behind you.

My cousin's daughter had this car accident last week. Luckily, she escaped with only scrapes and bruises. When I saw this picture of her car, my stomach actually began to hurt as I thought how close she had come to dying.  God had his hand upon her and was protecting her. 

I can't imagine what would be going through her head as she saw the other vehicle coming towards her, knowing that she was going to be hit.  Or was it so quick that nothing went through her head?  I know in past traumas I have suffered, time seems to go in slow motion.  Regardless, whether she thought about it as it was happening or went over it in her thoughts afterwards- it must have been terrifying.  

Have you ever been in a serious car accident?

What's Up with That?

I was making a nice meal the other day and to go with it I bought a loaf of Italian bread from my local big box super department +grocery store.
As I sliced it, this is what I found...... or rather what I didn't find.  An air bubble so big that there was very little bread.

What's up with that?
