I am a sandwich lover! And I’ll admit I once spent a full hour in an airport sitting on my phone looking at photos of sandwiches on the internet. During Exodus 90, I sometimes daydream about Philly Cheesesteaks, French Dips, Reubens, or an ultimate Alabama BBQ Sandwich with White Sauce. But the simplicity, as well as the ability to glide right down my gullet, makes egg salad one of the greatest sandwich fillings of all time! 

“Actions speak louder than words. Let your words teach and your actions speak.”
