Hot date.

I went to Starbucks with a cute boy yesterday.

He melted my heart with his excellent hand-holding skills, his wide grin... and his shoes that light up when he walks.


He's a cheap date, too. His only requests were a chocolate chip cookie, apple juice, and that we sit at a "really tall table" and take a picture so he could show Daddy how he climbed in it all by himself (he really did, too!).

 (Salted caramel mocha for this cousin!!! Heart fall.)

We brought Mama back some coffee and she was happy too.

"Hey Wyatt, want to know something?"
"I love you very much."
"I already knew that!!"

Such a blessing to be near my sweet family.

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.
