Outside my window: Winter light. I ran this morning as the sun was coming up, and the sky was all streaky-clouds and honking geese.
What I’m hearing: O is reading Matthew’s account of John the Baptist. M is doing her flash cards. It’s like a tiny cacophony in the school room.
In my prayers The families sundered Friday. Refugees and displaced people: here, in Syria, in Haiti, in Sudan, in Thailand and Burma, in Mindanao… Our friend Sarah. That my children would recognize Jesus.
On my mind: (This is a paraphrase, because my copy of A Christmas Carol disappeared in the weekend’s “reorganizing”.) In A Christmas Carol, Scrooge says to Marley, “You were always a good man of business.” Marley replies that his proper business was compassion and kindness and mercy.
What’s on your mind today?
