What did you call me?

For a couple minutes during each Sunday church service, an adult invites all the children to the ambo to hear a short discussion that illustrates the previous Scripture reading and upcoming sermon. Sometimes, the children's sermon is easier to grasp than the sermon intended for the mature.
Last week, the church lady adult illustrated the 1st Corinthians body analogy of our different talents and unique gifts with a toolbox, as in, if you had a nail, you need a hammer. Each tool has a job. No tool is more important. We need to use each tool correctly.
And then she said, "Look out there at the congregation. What do you see? I see lots of tools. Lots of tools just waiting to be used."

And you would've been so very proud of me. I didn't laugh, snort or spew but I did bite my lip.

Sometimes a tool for God,
but rarely a sunbeam,
I am,

I am really proud of you...don't know if I could've resisted a sideways smile...

It would be hard to stifle a laugh on that one. I have poor impulse control when it comes to stuff like that. I admire your restraint.

Reminds me of my mother-in-law, Frances. One day she announced to a room full of family members on Christmas day to just call her "Mother F". Well, I lost it as did everyone else in the room. Of course she had no idea why we were laughing.
