oh THAT's what I wanted to hear!

I was invited to a Bible Study Friday. What a treasure! This group was started over 30 years ago as a mens group. Now everyone is welcome, but I love being around the wise elderly people. They meet at a local coffee house called "The He-brew."
One of the younger men makes lunch for everyone for $5.

So, we were talking about how we came to know the Lord and get Baptized in the Holy Spirit. My friend Darlenna said something about me being Jewish and I told the story about the kid at the grocery store... The guy that makes lunch said, "I guess it's 'cause now you've got the whole Grandma thing going on."

I smiled at him but I was crying inside... in fact, my bottom lip is still sticking out...

You look just like...

I'm still chuckling to myself. When I went to the grocery store, the checker said,"Oh my goodness! You look just like that famous actress!"
I looked around, saw no one else and said,"Me?"
He said,"Yes! Oh I can't remember her name! She's Jewish, she's really funny and calls everybody meshugunah."
I still have no idea who he was referring to and it is the first time in my life anyone has ever said I looked Jewish! When you grow up blonde and blue, I don't think anyone considers it a possibility!
