Motivational posters on cinder block walls
Dry erase markers in red, blue, and green
Twenty-four student desks
Students paired in conversation
Graded papers to record and return
Field trips to Rancho Grande
Black felt sombrero
In response to a challenge by Brave and Reckless to write about a life experience using only 10 objects
A Message of Forgiveness from Philemon
Please be warned that today’s post touches on some painful memories. As I mentioned at the end of yesterday’s blog post, I’m going to make myself vulnerable to you because I believe someone out there needs to understand in no uncertain terms that God is interested in every situation and in every life. And there is nothing so big, so ugly, and so horrible, that He cannot transform it into something beautiful. Your situation may be far worse than mine, but God is bigger than your problems. Please let that sink in as you read my story.
A Poem for Memorial Day
Open the pool,
Fire up the grill,
Invite the neighbors—
It’s Memorial Day!
Funny we’ve forgotten what it is we’re supposed to remember….
A Song for Sunday
lyrics & music by J. B. F. Wright, 1925
Precious mem’ries, unseen angels
Sent from somewhere to my soul
How they linger, ever near me
And the sacred past unfold.
