1) Yesterday, a student at school stood up and growled/yelled, “I HATE YOU” in a deep voice in my immediate direction. Yikes. Angry, but quotable. I mean, did anyone hate YOU today? Probably not. But you also didn’t assign the massive 10 math problems. I know, I’m a slave driver. (Yeah right.)

2) On another note, I was reading aloud to my kids during lunch (so sue us, it was an amazing book- we didn’t want to quit) and I was trying to spread butter on my sweet potato with one hand while staying in the story. As I read, I felt little fingers grab my fork from my hand and whisper, “I’ve got this one, Ms. Downs“, and I watched as she gently fixed my lunch. It almost made me cry. And THAT is why Jesus loves the little children. It was a selfless act because her quesadilla got cold in the process. I want to serve people that way- I want their sweet potato to be worth more than my quesadilla.

3) Gilmore Girls quote of the week: “Just eat the whole [darn] pie, Bill!” (Marie, Caroline, KTB, that’s for you.)

4) And my personal favorite:

Titus 3:4-5
But when the kindness and LOVE of God our Savior appeared, He saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of His mercy.

I truly love Him more today than yesterday.
