It has been an interesting week in the Boldea household. For the first time in a long time we saw the sun in Wisconsin, and I don't believe anyone should be that happy to see the thermostat inch over seventy degrees, especially the last week of May, but there we were, my wife and I giddy as school children.
We decided it would be the perfect time to buy a grill, we had been talking about it for some time, and I went to the local have it all warehouse, and bought a gas grill, since we are not allowed charcoal on our balcony, which had the reassuring words, "some assembly required" stenciled on the side.
Some assembly turned out to be over one hundred odd shaped pieces, with four different kinds of screws, two screwdrivers, an an instruction manual that looked like a good sized magazine. Since we know that grill manufacturers are known for their honesty, and the instruction manual promised I would have it done in under forty five minutes, I set to work, being careful in the assembly process, because I had not stenciled in permanent damage,facial scarring, or third degree burns for that particular day. Four hours later I was still tinkering with the grill, and when I finally got it done it was too late to cook anything, and we decided to leave it for the next day.
I was too cheap to buy a cover for it, and it rained through the night, so the next day I spent most of my time trying to dry out the grill I had wisely placed on the balcony the night before.
Two brats, two hot dogs, and one strip of bacon later, I am now a grill master of the first order. No explosions, no burns, no scarring.
Throw a wedding, television filming, finishing a book I've been working on for the past six months into the mix, and the week evaporated as though it never was. Yes, this is my exciting life, and some still wonder why I snicker when I hear people say they are envious of me.
I guess what I'm trying to say, is that the final teaching on the conversion of Saul will be up sometime tomorrow. My apologies for taking so long.
With love in Christ,
