A Collaborative Website:

A collaborative website can have many collaborators, as long as what is contributed to the whole is in line with the purpose of the website. All right!  So, you see, I am putting this website together for you.  Why?  Truly, the conaravirus and you are the forces moving me in this direction.  Parenting and education have long been of the utmost importance to me. And now, with school beginning again, my heart goes out to all teachers, children, students, parents, grandparents – everyone!  Remember how we didn’t think the pandemic would last this long?!  And now we wonder if it will ever end. I’d love to have you participate in this venture.  I’m open to suggestions; but for now I’ll be working on sections this way: Grade School; University/College students; Out Working; Parents; Teachers. That’s it for now.  Please pass this newsletter on to all your friends, to schools, to churches, to anyone you can think of. Thank you – and I look forward to seeing your comments in the comment boxes.

what’s in a name?

Hopefully, within your name is most of what and who you are.  We probably all went through spells of disliking our name and thinking of what we’d rather have people call us.  And then we come to an acceptance of it.  And finally we embrace our name.  After all, it may have been the strongest and earliest element of bonding our parents maintained with us.  It’s such an important thing – pre-natal bonding. 

My Dad named me.  What’s the story of your name?  Does it contain your identity?  Who are you?  A strongly embraced YOU is the most important suit of armour you could possibly have – and it starts with you head (your mind) and then your heart.  And it’s covered and shielded by your soul.  You have a race to run. 
Called Life.

The Call to Happy Perseverance (Hebrews 12:1-2)   1. Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off every encumbrance that so easily entangles, and let us run with endurance the race set out for us. 2. Let us fix our eyes on the author and perfecter of our faith


a spot for thought:

“It’s time to start living the life you’ve imagined.”
Henry James 

Gus said, “This is wonderful news you want to hear,” and I asked him, “Fine, what is it?” and he said, “You are going to live a good and long life filled with great and terrible moments that you cannot even imagine yet!”
John Green (The Fault in Our Stars)
