Guilty Pleasures

Why, you may ask is John Edwards a guilty pleasure?
I made the mistake of watching the show with my husband one time—big mistake. He would not let me enjoy it at all, he complained the whole time about how general this or that comment was and how he was fishing here or making it up there! He just took all the fun out of watching that show with him, so now the show has moved over to my long list of what I like to call “guilty pleasures”—not because I feel guilty for watching it alone, but because I don’t feel guilty!
The Ghost Whisperer is another such show, that I have to watch when he goes out of town. Add to that all the BBC shows that I love and now Twilight!
He has his own “guilty pleasures” shows—Man vs. Wild, Survivor Man or whoever those guys are that eat bugs and freeze to death in some remote part of the planet. Then he has the Mithbusters and Dirty Jobs, basically all the shows he loves to watch with the boys without the “euhs” and “yucks!” that he gets to hear from me.
…So why not, right? Why can’t John Edwards have a gift?
I guess part of me always wonders if he is for real or a total fraud. I lean toward believing in his gift… why not? Doesn’t the Bible say that we are all given gifts?

1 Corinthians 12: 7-10

While the jury is still out on John Edwards, I have to say that I do believe that some people have gifts. I have seen them in my family and friends. Prehaps you are gifted in some way?
