On Saturday, I went to a funeral of my Uncle Burt’s mother Lois
Kingsley. It was a very good for me to learn about her amazing life of
faithfulness, prayer, teaching and love. My cousin Suzie said it well
when she said that I hope at the end of my life I make half the impact
on others lives that Lois did.
Right now, I am sitting in parent teacher conferences thinking to
myself… when was it that adulthood came upon me because I feel like
I totally missed that big event.
Last week was busy. It was very good to spend quality time with family
this weekend. I am grateful for it.
Today, it was a huge highlight to have my brother Ryan and sister-in-
law Lindsay bring our nephew Caleb over to hang out. The came to
church with us and then we went for a walk on the Falling Waters Trail
which was entirely lovely and rejuvenating to converse with them and
walk in the autumn cool weather with starbucks in hand.

Sometimes, people give me great joy. Like today, I was just watching some of my students helping each other with math while others were just laughing and socializing in a study hall today and it gave me great joy.
The reason I went into teaching was so that I could both learn from and engage young people who really can change the world. I can honestly say that I am learning from students today. I do believe and hope that these kids change the world through love and service as unto Christ. They have got this potential. Don’t we all? Oh, that we could just believe it to be true so that our actions might be congruent. Lord, help me to believe.
Check out this site. It’s brilliant – guess the correct word and the sponsors at the bottom of the page donate 10 grains of rice to someone who doesn’t have any.
Boo! Like a ghost, I return to the blogger.
