Made. my. day.

Just got this email from a close friend from Rez, about a conversation with her 4-year-old.


Just saw a picture of you from this summer's Bolivia trip on the Wheaton homepage!  This reminded me that I wanted  to tell you something cute A. did a week or two ago.  She's in pre-K now and they have a devotional and prayer time each morning.  A. informed me one day that she had prayed for Miss Emily during this time, "since she's moving far away and that's sad".  I was so surprised because we hadn't talked about you recently.  So I chalk it up to the Holy Spirit.  

Just thought you'd feel loved by that!!

Hope the transition to new school, new home, new church, new friends, etc is going well."

Have I mentioned I love my babies?
Also, why is my life so wonderful.
Also, I miss my Wheaton community.

I'm assuming this is our favorite professor? Super cute! I agree with A that you moved far away and that's sad. Love you!

Emily said...

Yes!! Isn't that so sweet? I was going to forward it to you and then I realized I wanted to fwd it to the whole world hence the blog post. I love you too!

Human Needs Global Resources Covenant, 2009

As fellow travelers on this journey, we commit to this covenant before God. Lord, in Your mercy, hear these our prayers:

When confronted with scarcity, need, and inadequacy, may we be nourished by the Bread of Life and the Cup of Salvation. Abundance overflows from Your table, sustaining all who come in faith. Father, help us.

When monotony blurs our vision and dulls our senses, may we encounter others as Christ did, through intentional presence in daily life, submitting as clay to be formed into vessels filled with the Spirit. Christ, guide us.

When wounded by the fractured condition of Your people, may we be united by Your Lordship in faith, hope, and love; seeing, as through the facets of a diamond, the beautiful spectrum of Your light reflected onto Your holy Church joined in praise. Spirit, empower us.

When all Creation groans, afflicted by injustice and driven to despair, may the promise of redemption root us in the hope of Your Kingdom: "Behold, I am making all things new!"

Holy Trinity, send us now into the world in peace, and grant us strength and courage to love and serve You with gladness and singleness of heart.
