What’s Rich smoking anyway??

I am smoking here a Honduran cigar.  My patio is one of my quiet-time-thinking spots.  Cigars help me think and are great as a treat once in a while but really are something to enjoy with the guys.  While enjoying this smoke I was reading my iPod Bible (www.youversion.com) and thinking about friends.  Life is not meant to be a lonely proposition, it is meant to be lived in community.  The finer things in life are so much sweeter in that context.  That is true for cigars, and it is true for our life as Christians.

What things do sometimes enjoy alone that are better with friends?

  1. Cigars are an awesome way to seem uber manly. This is why I smoke them in staff meetings, PTA meetings, and during intercessory prayer meetings.
    Seriously, I love stogies as well. I always have ulterior motives for Cuba missions trips…

  17. I know I can always make my hubby smile by bringing him back a cigar from wherever I have been in the world when I have to travel. He has to smoke them outside (but I do like them:)
