You have a work that no other can do

I teach 6- and 7-year-olds at church on Sundays. Nine of them. Sundays can be a little crazy. But now and again, a bolt of inspiration and encouragement strikes through the chaos.

Not chocolate, but just as inspiring

On my phone, I keep a list of ideas I'd like to blog about, as well as a weekly reminder to guilt-trip/annoy me into posting somewhat regularly during the times that I feel utterly unmotivated. I referred back to that list when my reminder popped up today and had to laugh when, in the middle …
