Mr. Toad's Ride

Did you ever want to meet a friend somewhere, but your friend lived on the other side of the county and you could never figure out the right place at which to meet? Or maybe there's a group of you and you don't know where to get together so no one has to really drive much farther than anyone else.

Well, enter "A Place Between Us." You can enter as many addresses as you want, and the program will come darn close to finding the epicenter ... you can even tell it what type of place you'd like to meet - coffee shop, restaurant, church - and it will peg the ones nearest to your epicenter.


It was the first time my four-year-old daughter had been to Disney World. She couldn't wait to go on Mr. Toad's Wild Ride. As the car zoomed through the crazy rooms, into the path of a speeding train, and right through walls that miraculously fell away at the last second, she sat clutching the steering wheel, white-knuckled, and screaming.

When the ride was over, she looked up at me and shakily said, "Next time you drive. I didn't know where I was going."

WISDOM for YOUR WEEK: "Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another -- and all the more as you see the Day approaching." (Hebrews 10:25)
