Thoughts of the Day

"I think Jesus had in mind that we would not just be "believers" but "participants." Not because it's hip, but because it's more accurate, more fitting that way. He wanted people who got the "do" part of faith, not because He wanted activity, but because He wanted our faith to matter to us. It's not just being politically correct; it's about being actually correct. We need to make our faith our very own love story." -Bob Goff, Love Does

Ways I'm Seeing God Show Up Today:
1. Hearing Bailee talk about what she's learning in Mark
2. Talking to Chloe about the first chapter of The Story
3. Dinner with Emily and Rachel, good friends that are such a part of my history and future
4. Working with people like KCraig and Lori that really get that teaching is about so much more than just the academic piece
5. Roommates who make me laugh, watch funny videos, plan chambray shirt days and share so well
6. Catching up with Annie and hearing her joy increase this semester
7. Starting to read the God Box from Mrs. Dewolf and being encouraged to pray like this mom
8. Getting to be up on the 8th grade floor for two days and seeing so many of my kids multiple times
9. When people go out of their way to be helpful
10. Fresh ideas and the audacity to try something new

Precept #6
Kind words do not cost much. Yet they accomplish much.  -Blaise Pascal
