There's a Mary in my house!!!

 Thank GOD.

Oh, I just love this girl sooo freakin' much.

Look! It's Mary! In my room!
I like this one of her doing art. IN MY ROOM! Because she's here! In Oregon!
She's designing the front cover for Robby's middle-schoolers' spring band concert. CUTE, huh?

As the story goes,
we were such cute and close best friends in high school
that her mom said,
"Aw, you know, when you two are grown-up and married,
you'll just have to buy a duplex you can live in together."

We agreed that would be a great situation, except,
"...But won't the boys be lonely on their side?"

Well, there is something sparkly on her left hand as of a few weeks ago...
and what with my whole moving across the country thing,
it looks as though she and Robby may have to weather through the first year of marriage without me living with them.
Sorry, guys.
Robby, dry your tears. You can make it. :-)
(Click on the link on his name. The website opened:
Me: Look at that picture!
Mayr: I KNOW! What a stud, right?
I think it's good they're getting married.)

The traditional bosom friend photo spree goes west-coast. Sooo thankful for this beautiful girl.

Whoops! I meant to say:

Looks like a fun visit!

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.
