i love valentines day!

first of all:
a shout-out to my sweet beautiful wonderful friend claire,
my valentine since 2003.
when we took each other (well, our parents drove us) to see How To Lose A Guy in 10 Days in theaters to celebrate.
i miss you terribly. and sorry my valentine's package is getting there late.
(it involves chocolate!! that's all i'll say.)

my outfit today:

displaying some valentine's love for my favorites.
(don't miss my heart-shaped earrings!)

felt-heart barrette made for me by elli, age 10. love her.

last night was valentines-making and valentine's baking.

and of course celebrating today.
my cohort never misses a chance for extra fun.

happy day
from my heart-filled corner of the world to yours.

now go hug someone you love.
(and eat chocolate.)

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.
