Someone said she'd make a good Jew, and indeed she did. We attended the Crossroads performance tonight. It was a blessing for us to watch, and it was a blessing for Rachel to participate.

School Shopping

"Well, I'd like to buy these, but really I should first find out if they prefer Zaner-Bloser or D'Nelian. ... Wow, Mom, don't I sound like a professional??"

Foot Washing

"May your heart be clean, may your mind be clean, and may your feet be clean," she told me as she dried my feet.

The Joys of Missionary Life

... or not.

I saw a friend today who is leaving tomorrow for a month on a company business trip. "I'll be living like a monk in a tiny hotel room," he told me. What I wanted to say to him, but didn't, was "Well, you could have used your frequent flyer miles to take your wife with you. She'd like to go, you know." The reason I didn't speak is because I knew he had, of his own free will, used his frequent flyer miles to book this trip, saving the company a chunk of money. Nice for the company, but not so nice for his wife.

Go Mavs, part II

Yay! Someone actually read this blog and sent me a few more photos to go with the one from yesterday. I do remember David saying, after coming home from this game, "He's the nicest billionaire I've ever shaken hands with."

Go Mavs!

I have had a lousy day. I've been both irritated and irritable, both annoyed and annoying. But we all hate those blogs when people just air out their gripes, don't we? So instead, I'm going to "fake it til I make it" and show you this funny photo. Actually, the funny part is the pink "Go Mavs!" note that was stuck to the back of this photo, placed there nearly two years ago by Doro, our German exchange daughter. Before she left us she hid dozens of these little notes around our house, and as you can see, we're still finding them. This one surfaced tonight when we were cleaning off a bulletin board.

Palm Sunday

The one day Christ got the praise he deserved--nevermind the fact that those who praised him had no idea what they were saying and would kill him later in the week.
