Be joyful even though you have considered all the facts...practice resurrection. -Wendell Berry

no picture today, just an invitation...

Having young people in my life keeps me on my toes. My kids and my daughter-in-law and their friends,  help me to be in the midst of a different generation, even though I do not belong to it. My work on the boards of two pre-K thru 12, and the other, a college...give me the gift of involvement with the future.

Thank goodness for these blessings. I do not ever want to be out of touch with the hope and promise of young people.

I invite you to pop on over to the blog of one of my favorite young people. Jamie is an Earlham grad and his Change from Within is worth a read every time he posts. Today's is a gem, (inspired by Andrea Gibson), and I would love to see any of you leave a comment over there.

Being vulnerable helps us grow.



  1. ha! that gave me a laugh....a deep laugh of understanding....
    Now to write one of my own....
    so much , so many parts...such little space
    thanks for the wonderful link
    it comes on the eve of bad news from a dear friend.....a granddaughter's suicide
    what parts did that poor child hate and couldn't overcome.....

  2. "Thank you" sounds so pallid, Karen, but I mean it with all my heart.
