some assistance please.

What is compassion? What does it mean? what does it mean to you? And do men and women view compassion the same way? Just something that I am struggling to understand right now.

keeping the pace!

It"s day #3 on keeping up with my promise to myself. I have challenged myself to keep an up beat attitude by being "patient" and showing my "kindness". Well let's say it has been easier said than done. However i am sticking with it and I don"t plan on ever looking back. When I was younger I was very patient and very kind just like my son Lukus and after the kids got back from camp OC yesterday that's all everyone said about him. WOW! and I started this on Wednesday, someone is there for me.

The past 3 days have tested me and I am sure the next 3 days will also test me. Today is the final day for me to get ready for The 4th and Ian's 14th birthday on Sunday. And most of the responsibilty is in my hands to get everything ready. I will not fail at this. I will keep up the pace and keep moving forward.

Hi there!

I found this check in the basket and it has my name on it. What is it?

It's not a check, it's a savings bond. It's for college.

Oh...ok! Thanks! Bye!

(5 seconds later......My phone rings again)


Dad?? This is Emilie!

What if I don't want to go to college? Do I get the money?

Well, yes....I guess. I would like you to go to college. Don't you want to go?

Well Yeah! Do I have to stay overnight?

Well yes! But you have to stay longer than overnight!

HOW long?

Years! You have to stay for years!

Well forget that!!!! I'll just keep the money!

Eye opener...

Well, yesterday was my first day to ever teach a class at church. However on the same note it was a choice I made after church camp. I really wanted to learn and understand what it is like to be 10 again. Well let me tell you I only had 4 boys in my class. I was expecting them to be really quiet and to have ackward moments of silence, ahhh not. Mitchell, Braden, Johnathan, and Lukus talked my ear off. I had planned on spending my first Sunday getting to know the kids in my class, and thats exactly what happened. The 45 mins flew by, we all chatted for about 10 mins while we drew our names on a big sheet of paper, to help me put a name to a face. Then we took about 10 mins on the floor and each of us prayed. Then I took them outside and we traced out our images with chalk and talked about how we were created in the image of God. And then back to the classroom to finish off the day, and let me tell you our room is about 6' x 6', so the personal space is not available. Anyways I had a great time and I can't wait for next week.
