Y’all, I know I can be a tisch over the top at times.
But there are things that are worth getting THAT excited about. And π is one of them.
Several years ago I was looking for an illustration for the the amazingness of God as seen in unexpected places (this was before my love of signs) and was reacquainted with pi.
It’s been a love fest ever since.
Thursday is going to be π Day! You know pi, the circumference of a circle divided by the diameter? And the answer is 3.14159, so March 14 is Pi Day. An obvious way to celebrate would be to make and eat pie. Like this:
As you dig around looking for you pie pan (this is hypothetical since I don’t really cook), think about this: circles are everywhere. Glance around you and notice how many you see. Go ahead, I’ll wait.
Every single circle reflects God. How? In that pi it never repeat, never gets old, and never ever stops.
Every single circle.
So, in honor of Pi day this Thursday we are going to have some fun this week! There will be singing, there will be laughing, there will be poetry, there will be pie :). You knew it was coming.
If there are 31.4 or more new subscribers to either this blog or to my newsletter by Friday evening in China, someone in will get a pie to be mailed in the US (so if you don’t live in the US, you can have one sent to a friend or loved one in your name). I’ll be using Mom’s Apple Pie if you want to check out your choices. To be eligible for the drawing, all you need to do is leave a comment this week and help pass the word on!
It’s easy to subscribe, just go to The Messy Middle and in the upper ride hand side you can input your email address and follow the simple instructions. Bonus, if you haven’t gotten a copy of Signs of Eden Regained, you’ll get one free by signing up for the newsletter.
To set the mood, here’s the theme song for the week:
There is also this gem as to what Pi sounds like:
Coming tomorrow: Pi jokes (so you can be ready for Thursday)
Wednesday: Pi cartoons (get ready to spit out your drink, they are funny)
Thursday: We bring back Pi-ku from last year (Haiku but with 3 – 1 -4 syllables — starting thinking now)
And you’re welcome for that catchy tune being in your head! Pass on the word and let’s get folks signed up for the fun!
