Declaration: I am devoted to God's purposes

The pastor of the church that both Scott and Kelli's families attend, Pastor Ray Johnston of Bayside Church of Granite Bay, CA had the church make this declaration on Easter Sunday:

"I am devoted to God's purposes. I will live the rest of my life serving God's purposes with God's power for God's glory. I will value worship over wealth, character over comfort, service over status and people over possessions."

Love that!

Dear Scott,
I heard ya say that you would rather be ignorant than know the calorie content... I don't normally use this phrase, but it seems to fit your situation: "Ignorance is Bliss". ;) Have a wonderful day!

"3) Panda Express- 2 entrée lunch: Orange Chicken, Sweet & Sour Pork, Fried Rice, Hot & Sour Soup, 1 Egg Roll and a large Soda

Ok, seriously this is the meal someone would pick only if they were attempting to kill themselves by overeating.

Let's pick the worst things off the menu, add in soup, an egg roll, and a large soda. I hope this isn't typical of America, because that is a huge huge lunch!! A lunch that large is utterly ridiculous!!

Seriously ditch the soup, ditch the egg roll, ditch the horrid for you soda, and you would shave this meal to a more reasonable 800 calories I bet.

Better yet, pick entrees that are not deep fried, and instead filled with vegetables, and you would have a quite healthy lunch.

Surely Christine didn't mean to sucker punch this establishment so heavily by only picking the worst of the worst off of the menu.
