Nail emergency


Yesterday I had a "nail emergency." Yeah, I know, I know. Sounds ridiculous. Only women would understand. Speaking of church "for men only" I have been thinking - if we had church "for women only" we could provide an on site nail tech. People could get fills, mani's or pedi's while they are there. :-) (I know, that's about as ridiculous as....church for men!)

Anyway, yesterday I did have a nail emergency. My husband laughs at the thought but truly there is such a thing.

When I woke up yesterday I noticed one of my nails was lifting off and a little water got underneath so I thought, "ugh, on a Sunday!" I made it through the morning service without doing anything about it but I thanked God I had extra time yesterday before evening service. After lunch I headed over to my nail place. You would have thought the second coming had arrived.

"Deeeeeeena! Whachoo doooeen heeere? It Sundaaaeeee! Yoo nah ah churcsh?"
I assured them...yes indeed, it was Sunday...I did have church, in fact I was headed back there. I had not resigned. Jesus is still Lord. I just had a...nail emergency.

So I sat there and got a fill while watching "Deja Vu" (very intriguing movie)...got a beautiful marble design (pink and black, thank you!) and headed back home to get ready for church. 

I've been thinking...what are some things we would have if we had exclusive "church for women"? According to some men out there, we already have "church for women". But I don't think so. If I were going to be so selfish as to demand church just for my gender, I'm sure a few changes would be made.

In addition to the onsite mani's and pedi's, why not go with chocolate communion wafers? 

Pink pews? 

Instead of a Christian bookstore on site, we could have a purse boutique on site. 

And I for one would like to have at least one man in the place. Perhaps Sawyer from Lost to give the announcements by video. Nothing like a little eye candy in church. :-)

Ridiculous? Yes, but I make the point again, no more ridiculous than "church for men."

Perhaps we could make it gender-inclusive by having Sawyer from Lost AND Angelina Jolie work together to bring us our weekly announcements. I think that would cut down on the complaining, lol!!

I know how it is to break a nail especially before church. Last week I broke two and it happened while I was at work .I went to get them fixed right after.
