OK, I need to get to work and have no time for blogging at the moment, but I did want to show off this one nice photo I got last night while hiking around the Center trails.

Is Everyone In a Bad Mood?

It seems like many people with whom I have normal interaction are going through sizable amounts of stress at the moment, and as a result are being, well, grouchy. At times like this I struggle with my responses to them. Or more to the point, not my responses really, but more my attitude. Sometimes I'm tempted to act nice even though I think my efforts could indeed be acting. It would be better if I were just strong and mature enough to honestly bless those who curse, and really not be hurt. Instead, maybe the best I can do is "dishonestly" bless and pretend not to be hurt. Is there any wisdom in the "fake it 'til you make it" idea?

The whole concept of doing good when I feel like doing evil is one I struggle with.

Sarah and Stephen's Wedding

We had a busy and fun weekend celebrating the marriage of the little girl next door (Sarah) to a Wycliffe MK (Stephen). We've known Sarah since she was a toddler. The guy she has chosen is the kind of man any Christian mother would want for her daughter--a mature believer, kind, funny and with good communication skills. Sarah, you done good! We pray God's blessings on you both for a strong and happy marriage.

Click below to see photos in a web album. Many of the photos are of not that great quality, but you'll get the idea. (My little camera doesn't do so well in low light.)
