March 23: OK Day

I hope your day goes well, or, at the least, that it’s OK. March 23 is OK Day!

While you’re having your OK Day, pull out some corn dogs and some chip dip for Corn Dog Day and National Chip and Dip Day, and don’t forget to celebrate the fact that the Earth didn’t get destroyed by an asteroid in 1989.

“Have mercy on me, my God, have mercy on me,
for in you I take refuge.
I will take refuge in the shadow of your wings
until the disaster has passed.”
Psalm 57:1
