Happy Gobble, Gobble Day! Whelp, it's the holidays and the Fitzies are together again imagining delectable delights and the yumminess of Pink Fluff, extra cups of butter and Michelle's caramels. And then, once the feasting is over, it's time to fall into a food coma so you can be ready for your Black Friday shopping -- You'll be amazed to hear what some parents will do in order to get that perfect toy and what one woman did because her beau at all the salsa. Then Elyse will answer Satan's question, "Can a man be right before God?" Listen while you baste your bird.
In celebration of the Veteran's Day holiday, some sweet little kids joined us on the front porch were discussions ensue about whether bacon causes cancer or not (everyone agrees not eating enough bacon would be hazardous to your health). The conversation migrates to our favorite episodes of America's Funniest Videos (Elyse does not take any responsibility for the things the children say during this discussion), while Jessica draws a delightful analogy between high school cheerleaders who are confident in their identity and how Jesus has sought us and freed us. We got some wonderful fried okra goin'... stop on by, will ya?
After their road trip up to interview the certified smart guy, Dr. Dan, the Fitzies rolled on home and set up shop again on the front porch. This week, we talk about why making your bed is a mortal sin. Jessica proves her gifting by recalling the prophecy she made about the KC Royals, which led to a conversation about the Royals' can-do spirit, The Martian, Matt Damon, and the "glory story." Joel closes out our time together with a devotional about God's shocking generosity in light of our failures. Thankfully, there were no trucks backing up.
Today the Fitzes pile in their ol' jalopy and head on up the road to Concordia University in Irvine where they spend some time with their ol' amigo, Dan Siedell, a certified smart guy. Dan's area of expertise is contemporary art and he really knows how to "engage culture" as we say. Sometimes we even know what he's talking about. But... he's also an expert on the Skunk Ape, Sasquatch and Black Eyed Children. Note: Parts of this program might not be appropriate for little kids or adults who like gazing at their Thomas Kincade paintings. Enjoy!
