his love endures forever.
2 Let the redeemed of the LORD tell their story—
8 Let them give thanks to the LORD for his unfailing love
and his wonderful deeds for mankind,
9 for he satisfies the thirsty
and fills the hungry with good things.
i am forever grateful, forever counting... eucharisteo from the 1100's
Joi Williams basketball camp for girl-love and boy-love
their tales of fun, discipline, learning, and laughing
being home to enjoy conversation with my I do
clean sheets and
laundry dried out on the line

sun, sand, and surf
sand fleas and mussels captured and placed in a beach pail for observation
a stop at mcdonalds on the way home
the Dutch princess saying, "let's sing!"
singing every song we could think of
all five voices singing Amazing Grace

eight-year-old boy-love sweaty kisses
ten-year-old girl-love sitting on my knees talking with me at basketball
looking back to realize service was sometimes where i least expected it

opportunities to serve within the box
I will praise you, LORD, among the nations;
I will sing of you among the peoples.
4 For great is your love, higher than the heavens;
your faithfulness reaches to the skies.
5 Be exalted, O God, above the heavens;
let your glory be over all the earth.
24 The LORD bless you
and keep you;
25 the LORD make his face shine on you
and be gracious to you;
26 the LORD turn his face toward you
and give you peace. (Numbers 6)
