Carrying COOKIES!

“I usually travel with a Posse. I roll deep.
I travel like a rapper, yet without the artillery.
We don’t carry guns, we carry COOKIES.”

Eating Half of The Inventory

“I was always a kid trying to make a buck.
I borrowed a dollar from my dad,
went to the penny candy store,
bought a dollar’s worth of candy,
set up my booth, and sold candy
for five cents apiece.
Ate half my inventory,
made $2.50,
gave my dad back his dollar.”

Be Your Destiny

Of Pablo Picasso & his Mother:
“His mother told him at a young age,
“If you are a soldier, you will become a general,
if you are a monk, you will become the Pope.”
He, later, was quoted,
“Instead, I am a painter, and became Picasso.”
He found his gift and gave it to the world.
His life, filled with meaning and purpose,
serves as inspiration for artists, designers,
makers and philosophers around the world.”

On the Rotisserie

Three rows of rotisserie chickens
“The first time I was cooking for my wife, Stephanie, way before she was my wife,
I actually put three chickens on the rotisserie and I closed the grill,
which is really a bad idea.
But I just wasn’t thinking very straight that day.
And I looked outside and I saw, like, smoke and flames.”

You don’t even want to look in the mirror
after you’ve had a baby, because your stomach
is just hanging there like a Shar-Pei.”

The Last Bite of Cookie

“On more than one occasion, the camera has cut to me after a break as
I’m still trying to swallow the last bite of cookie.
Those of you who have thought to yourselves,
‘That guy talks like he has marbles in his mouth,’
should know that they are not marbles, but oatmeal cookies.”

Oh, My Goodness! I’m Becoming a Poet, and I Didn’t Even Know It!

Well, I hope that title makes you smile as often as it has made me smile.  The title for this post was my reaction to a statement I spoke to the Lord this morning, after getting out of bed!  I stated:

“Good morning, Adonai.  Thank-you for the blessings that have already come.
Thank-you for the blessings already on their way.  Thank-you for the blessings here,  for today.”

~ Michelle’Chaella’ Boddie

Scripts with “Adonai”: Genesis 15:2, Deuteronomy 10:17, & Psalm 136:3.
