#875 The Light of the Gospel
"Our heart is like the darkened earth; the Gospel is like the sun,
enlightening and giving life to our hearts.
May the true sun of Thy righteousness shine in our hearts, O Lord!"
~~St. John of Kronstadt
#876 Mercy for the humble
"...he began to shout, 'Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!'"
#877 The community of the body
"It was he who gave some to be apostles, some to be prophets,
some to be evangelists, and some to be pastors and teachers,
to prepare God's people for works of service,
so that the body of Christ may be built up
until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God
and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ."
Author's Note: "Extravagant" to one may be perfectly ordinary to another.

#843 Workin' trucks...not pretty, but very useful
#844 Bugs on a van...and the sense of accomplishment that comes with washing them off
#845 Car wash "Ballerinas"---the headless, loud, dizzily spinning variety, but fascinating to watch
Author's Note: Two days ago, a neighbor was burning brush in the back yard. I love that smell. Alas, no burning of that sort on this day, but there were other gifts to be found....
#839 Flare of enthusiastic labor from The Only Boy
#840 Candles & Conversation with Women of my Heart

#836 Love notes from the Eldest....never gets old.
#837 Since I missed it at church yesterday, I read it today, by myself.
#838 A review of last night's chapter....
"'Yes, they are; but it would be far better to be eaten up alive by them
than live, such a worthless creature as you are. Why, you're not fit to be thought
about by any but bad, ugly creatures.'
This was how herself talked to her."
The Lost Princess, Chapter Eleven: Rosamond in the Peat-moss
