...was the author of that quote below. What a great brother!
A Happy Almost Birthday to me! Greg took me to Abuelo's for lunch, as there are junior high basketball games Monday night. "A good time was had by all." I had a salad with chicken ("chicken little," come to think of it!), spinach, and tortilla soup. They no longer had steak and shrimp (which is exquisite), so I went with the simpler. We sure like Abuelo's. They haven't done us wrong yet!
Fifty three. Wow. The Lord has brought me a long way since eighteen! And I am so thankful for the grace that keeps me.
As I think of Misty and Sarah, I remember a poem I learned when our children were small.
Leslie Pinckney Hill
LORD, who am I to teach the way
To little children day by day,
So prone myself to go astray?
I teach them KNOWLEDGE, but I know
How faint they flicker and how low
The candles of my knowledge glow.
I teach them POWER to will and do,
But only now to learn anew
My own great weakness through and through.
I teach them LOVE for all mankind
And all God’s creatures, but I find
My love comes lagging far behind.
Lord, if their guide I still must be,
Oh let the little children see
The teacher leaning hard on Thee.
