My Mary.

Back on American soil. Bolivia was... just incredible... and I will post more next week (in the meantime, you don't want to miss Ash's post on our final adventure).

But this weekend I am in Maryland and it is all about supporting and celebrating my bestest friend and her boy.

I love this beautiful girl so much. Can't wait to rejoice with her on Sunday.

Pic: Us last month at her bridal shower. 

(PS: I spent the first week of this month camping in a national park.
The next two and a half weeks running around urban South America.
And the last 60 hours internationally traveling.
On Sunday I am the maid of honor in a country club wedding on the Chesapeake Bay.
My stylishness standards are gonna need to jump a few notches fast.)

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.
