Dan the man

there once was a man named Dan

Dan likes squirrels, gnomes and
onions that have not been in the refrigerator.

(photo borrowed from facebook)
he traveled to the great state of KS to visit his friend Lucas

Lucas brought Dan to Indianapolis (street)
(on a Monday)

There was food.
(and even some fire)

Hippirate met Stewie

and Dan told a story about a stuttering turtle

there was a captive audience, who continued to laugh
(and laugh, and laugh, and laugh)

and finally the story ended.
with a very good moral.

MNGP's defined

Definition of MNGP: Monday Night Gal Pals

Background: It started with a house on Indianapolis street, a desire to invest in women and a need to learn how to cook. So I get the idea to invite these girls over, we'll eat together, we'll share life together and then see what happens.

It began in the summer under the name of Monday meals at my house. The menu was always different, though taco salad became the favorite and LOTS of diet coke was the norm.

We hang out. (sometimes, yes watching ridiculous television)

We laugh A LOT. (and sometimes cry)
We circle the wagons
and pray together.

We process life together.
We walk through life WITH each other.
We face it together.
the hard stuff.
the good stuff.
the life changing, holy moly God, what are you up to stuff.

And we will continue to meet together.

Most Mondays.

These girls are dear. I love the time we spend together. Monday's are rather strange when they are not sitting in my living room. I am excited to see what the Lord has in store for each of us as we scatter about the globe for a couple of months this summer. In August we will all reunite and how sweet it will be. Our time together is precious. They each encourage my heart in a unique way. Time with them is refreshing. I am grateful for the opportunity to be involved in their lives. My cup overflows.

"I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with JOY."

(we need an updated pic with you Vic!)
