What she wore: blue jeans with embroidery on the pockets, blue and grey striped button up shirt, black stappy leather slides.
I’ll be spending the rest of my Spring Break in New Orleans visiting family and friends. This may hamper my blogging, so I thought I’d throw in a Sunday blog.
Today at church we had a visitor who was talking about a ministry with inner-city kids. Actually, I know that many of the kids I teach are involved with this group, so I was very interested. They have camps, tutoring, one-on-one mentoring, and other programs. I would love to volunteer this summer, so I signed right up.
One thing the man said stuck with me. He said, "Invest your life rather than spend it." This really lines up with my personal philosophy–what you do for others is an investment in the world. What we do for ourselves is gone as soon as we finish. Our good deeds can grow and multiply, perhaps have effects we are unaware of. A nice message to hear.
To add to my good day, in the car I heard the Hub and I’s favorite song–we joke that it’s "our song," but it’s hardly a romantic one. The song is David Allen Coe’s "You never call me by my name." Silly, but it’s the first song the Hub and I ever danced to when we were a youthful 19 years old.
I hope your day was as nice as mine.
