Look! I'm a handlin' the snakes now

Hey CraftiMama, go get Wingtips. He's going to need to see this. He's not going to like it, but he needs to see it. My grandfather was a snake handlin' pentecostal preacher. Seriously, I'm not kidding you. Anyhoo, I went on a GROW (church visitation) visit tonight and I met Lucy the snake. The couple we were visiting came to the door with Lucy and after a little while, they said, "Do you want to hold her?" and I said, "Sumer with one M, will you go get my camera out of the car."

I'm afraid I would have said, "forgive me Lord" and been backing out of the driveway faster than they knew what rang their doorbell.

Have you completely lost your mind? You refuse to eat asaragus but you have no problem wrapping a snake around your neck?

I'm thinking you immediatley thought "Ooooo! This would be a great blog post!!" Not "Hmmmmm this thing could constrict and squeeze the life out of me."

You are crazy. That is all.

You know, I thought about coming to make visits last night with you, but I didn't. Now I know it must have been okay with the Lord that I didn't, because I wouldn't have made it with that snake. Oh my goodness.

Seriously, you will do anything for a little attention!

I'm glad Sumer asked you to go this time and not me!
Did you give them your blog address?

What a kodak moment. That's right up there when NC wished she had her camera in ER with her little cutie patootie. So, are they coming back to TSC?

For those of us that are a little scared of going on GROW visits- this SO did not help!

Wow! I have heard that everyone wants to come help with GROW now. Good job, snake handler/preschool minister. That just ain't right! This will be a cute photo for all the new mothers to check out before turning their sweet blessings over to you...hmmm.
