To Niece with LOVE

I didn't get to watch my niece grow up.

But she was always in my heart.

She's about to become a teacher.

Here's her new school bag.
To my niece with LOVE.

Easy Sunday

As I mused with a girlfriend about the nuances of volunteer involvement in local education support groups.

Goodwill

Have I rejoiced with and for my neighbor in virtue or pleasure? grieved with [her] in pain, for him in sin? ... Have I revealed any evil of anyone, unless it was necessary to some particular good I had in view? Have I then done it with all the tenderness of phrase and manner consistent with that end? ... Has goodwill been, and appeared to be, the spring of all my actions toward others?


- John Wesley, quoted in A Guide to Prayer for All God's People

Happy Mother's Day

From my family I received a lovely book...


and candy sushi.


I woke up to breakfast in bed courtesy of Snowden, and was bestowed a mother daughter bracelet (not shown) by Grasshopper.
We had lunch at Abuelo's, a favorite restaurant and remembered family far away.
Happy Mother's Day

Work

Work is the worship of the Lord. Do not make any distinction between menial and respectable work.
