Here in Texas, we love our BLUE BELL. We like sweet tea, talking about how hot the weather is going to get, Bar-B-Q and Blue Bell. We talk about football, how the team will be this year and discuss the date we believe Blue Bell will return.
Chocolate, Vanilla, Strawberry, Blackberry Cobbler, Rocky Road…
Whatever the fave may be, Blue Bell is the choice around here.
One of my friends said today, “If you are really wanting ice cream, any of it’s good.” To most Blue Bell Addicts, that would be fightin’ words. That would be the beginning of a major debate.
I do like ice cream, but as my friend said, if you are wanting it, almost any of it will satisfy you. We like to be obsessed about so many things in this world. I’m not trying to dis Blue Bell. I do like Blue Bell. I do!
My observation today is just this: ICE CREAM is good. This life is good, but we as crazy humans have to find something to talk about. Blue Bell has been a current event for several months now. It’s been in the news, on the radio and the topic of several conversations all over Texas and beyond for a while now.
Why aren’t we so quick to talk to people about what Jesus has done for us? Why not share GOD stories just as quick as we start small talk about a brand of ice cream? Isn’t HE just as sweet as ice cream?
As most all of my blogs go…I’m talking to myself! Why don’t I share Jesus MORE? I want to tell people about the crazy awesome stuff that happens in my life, because I know my God is real. I do! I want to be able to talk to others just as easy about HIS return as I am about the return of Blue Bell. You never know which will be first!
Don’t ask yourself when Blue Bell is coming… Ask yourself are you ready when JESUS comes?
I hope the second question is much easier to answer than the first one.
