What a week of wonder...

This week we had two interesting things happen.

1. A worm virus hit my computer and sent an inappropriate email to everyone in my contact list. (You probably got one.) The cool thing about it? I "spoke" with people I haven't talked to in months and, in some cases, years! How awesome that something potentially rotten can turn into something so fun!

2. Henry had a student tell him how wonderful he is as a teacher. She reminded him that you reap what you sow and gave him a gift of bananas. Sounds a little odd, huh? The cool thing is that it was raining during lunch one day this week so Henry volunteered to stay in the classroom and eat his lunch there so that any student who wanted to do the same could. In doing so, he shared a banana with one of the students. Another student left the classroom and returned in a little while, pulled a chair up to talk with Henry and proceeded to tell him how thankful she was to have him as a teacher. She said she had never had a teacher who cared about the students like he does, not just academically, but as whole persons. She said, "the Bible says you will reap what you sow. I brought you some bananas because you gave that student a banana." What a wonderful reminder of the opportunity to do ministry wherever you are.

Tonight we celebrate Heather's birthday. She turned 26 on February 8th. Hard to believe.

Blessings to you, Pam
