This time of year there is lots and lots of talk about Black Friday. Statements like "we give thanks one day and the next we fight people over STUFF." We have never really played into all that.... but we do go out on Black Friday. Lysa and I pull an all nighter. We usually leave around midnight or after and drive to the closest "big" town... about 2 hrs away. By the time we arrive most of the crowds/fighters have left.... Around 5-6am when Lysa is getting sleepy I treat her to a Starbucks!
We are always at Lifeway at 7. We are always looking for the Jesus Story Book Bible because most years they are $5. We give them away. This year we hope to give some to our Backyard Bible kids.
We love Lifeway .... people do not push or grab. In the line we talk to others and once I met a girl and we connected. She shared how she loves Compassion and her sponsored children. We are now friends on facebook.
We go to lunch and may even take a nap in the car. Last year Lysa didn't feel very well so we decided to take a break and we went downtown.....
That's how we do our Black Friday......
