In Shreveport today teaching a class and had lunch at Herby K’s, a seafood joint, and I mean joint, in the best of ways, a classic hole in the wall where nothing changes and the food is awesome. Famous for it’s shrimp Po'boy sandwich, I had fish and shrimp etouffee. I think it sits about 20 people tops and then a patio on the side for the rest. A favorite of the American Pickers, Mike and Frank, it has been around since 1936!
Saw today Dr. Fauci recommended kids don’t come home to see their parents this Christmas. Screw that. (That’s all I say lest I really say what I think.)
Here’s what I would like you to do with your Christmas Holiday:
Remember why we have Christmas in the first place, a child was born. Do it somberly, reading from scripture, no technology anywhere.
Plan your upcoming year. 2020 has obviously been crazy. Take charge, what do you want to accomplish, what things will you stand for?
Build up your faith community. Get stronger, don’t remain divided if you are, keep standing strong if have been.
Remind yourselves that America is and has always been different - land of the free and home of the brave. We have not always lived up to it, but that is who we are. Act that way.
