When you open up your fortune cookie (irony alert: never actually seen one in China) and you see:

Fortune cookie day

Fortune cookie day

If you’re having a post-Easter “wrong cookie” day, the hope of the empty tomb covers this too. True that each “cookie” you crack will come with a different fortune, but none can really be wrong because there is

Nothing

Noone

Nowhere

that can’t be reached by redemption.

And it gets better … the Comforter is coming, just you wait!

{Still, those “wrong cookie” days aren’t fun.}

I feel mildly compelled to tell you that this cookie was opened by a five year old niece and it went right over her head. I basically snatched it out of her hands when I saw it. Working on impulse control :)

What kind of a fortune cookie day are you having?

    Yesterday, started out as a “wrong cookie day” but ended as a “you landed where you needed to day.”

    On “moving day,” walking into the boys’ (Sebas/Mauri) dishevelled, not nearing packed apartment evoked a myriad of responses: dumbfoundness-sheer lack of orgnization/cleaning on their part, frustration/anger-expectation that Marco and I would “fix” things, sadness-one brother left the other to figure things out while he went to work.

    As the day progressed, the emotions turned to: compassion-they needed Marco and I to guide them, love-hugging one of the boys as he poured out his heart about how he’s been feeling lately, joy-being invited into these relationships has been/continues to be a journey with unexpected rewards :)

    The last week has seemed like a wrong cookie day. Issues of placement and planning take me to James 1 and Jeremiah often. I know when it’s all said and done, I will know it was exactly the “cookie” meant for us, but it’s difficult to see in the “here and now.”

    People in the office know I love fortune cookies so if they eat at the Asian restaurant, many times they bring back their fortune cookie for me. So, I get a lot of fortune cookies. However, the other day I got an epic one. It said, “Are you tired?! Because you have been running through my mind all day.” Yes, my stale fortune cookie had a pickup line it. And sometimes, I think that’s just how my life is. AKA sometimes you just have to laugh.
