Week-end and Kind hearted people...

This week-end was the Heritage retreat. It was a lot of fun, and I am so glad I went. Also, the speaker, who happened to be Jake's cousin, was incredible. God placed some strong and important things on his heart to say to us about holiness and where it begins.

I went to the grocery store today with only a $20 bill because I didn't want to spend so much, and when my total went over and I had to give up my avocados, the man behind me in line offered to pay for them for me! He was a total stranger, and it was so nice of him to do that! Now I am excited to go eat some avocados.

Bellydance starts up this week. I can hardly wait, as there is so much anticipation!

Hi my darling,

Glad to hear that you retreat weekend was a good one.
Does Jake’s cousin go to the school?

As for you grocery shopping … How nice that there was some one there who helped you out with your purchases and that you didn’t’ have to put the avocados back.
I’ll bet they will taste extra good.

It was good to see you last week and have some time to visit. We will have to do it again sometime.

Have fun with your belly dancing classes.

I hope this will be a great week
I close with this little poem.

Lots of love NAN

Bookends of Life

In life, we have two bookends
A beginning and an end
The things amid have filled the gaps
Whereby, our lives do blend.

The volumes which are written
Reveals the light of men
The print upon the pages
Contain the breath within.

The chapters stack so neatly
Are bounded at the seams
And filled with aspirations
Our failures and our dreams.

The many happy chapters
Hold sorrow in between
The valleys and the mountains
Are parts of life's great scheme.

The fiber of our being
Is glue that makes it stick
The text that fills the pages
Are choices we did pick.

It takes a set of book ends
To make one's life complete
The content comes together
When both the ends do meet.

One day upon completion
Our lives will be made whole
When Jesus reads our memoir
The mirror to our soul.

We cannot change the content
Once written, nevermore
It's stored amongst God's archives
Upon that golden shore.
