Amazing Fry & The Tsunami

<>You've seen the bumper sticker: "What Would Jesus Do?". Given the recent diet fads, ever wonder if he enjoyed his carbs? :-)

As an aside, that isn't a bad reflective question to ask yourself if (when) you find yourself in a moral dilemma and need to make a decision. And, most things have moral underpinnings (eg: should you invest some of your disposable wealth in a mid-life Harley-Davidson, or help 1,000 recent Tsunami survivors make it to next Christmas?)

So two nights ago the family was eating a quick meal. The kids love "steak frys". They're an easy side dish... just pour out some frozen sliced potatoes on a cookie sheet and bake them till they're golden and sizzling.

It's unusual that we have the TV on during dinner... but the News was in the background, showing coverage of the almost unfathomable destruction of life and dreams caused by the most powerful earthquake in 40 years. Kinda puts life and death and material pursuits in perspective.

We're trying to explain to our 7 and 9 year olds what happened and how people are helping when my wife looks down to grab another fry (okay, I'll admit, we'll eat some too... blood sugar addicts that we are :-) and this is what she sees!

I do believe God reveals himself, but generally thru more personal and profound and life changing ways than a french fry! My wife wouldn't let me eat it :-). I read that a faint portrait of Mary in an old toasted cheese sandwich just went for $28K on eBay. Hmmm. We've got the fry in a sealable baggie in the fridge. If anyone wants to buy it, make your check payable to the Salvation Army disaster relief fund. You never know....
