Use your gift – Forthright Magazine
You are a unique person. No one else is like you. God made you an individual with characteristics, personality, and tastes that distinguish you from every other human being who lives or has ever lived.

“Identical” twins aren’t. People who know such twins can usually tell them apart from their manner of being.

[uplift] 30 Years of Ink
I ran across an old article of mine in which I’d mentioned we had started our Brazilian magazine, Edificação, in August, 1987. I’m not big on anniversaries, but this reminded me that, if that date is correct, it’s been 30 years publishing this teaching tool.

 Brazil,  
Taking a little trip this afternoon, 2.5 hours one way, for an organizational meeting for an orphanage. They do a good work. We're more cheerleaders than anything. Our little congregation sends some monthly help.

We also cleaned out our closets of clothes to donate. A lot of stuff I can't wear anymore after slimming down. A lot was given to me that I just don't use. In both cases the clothes are in very good shape and will serve someone well. Most of it they'll probably put in their bazaar to sell, I suppose.

On the way back, we'll make a stop at a friend's house for chili. (Yes, @giac hellvecio, we know a Brazilian who loves Mexican food.) So it'll be late by the time we get home tonight.

Let Me Not Forget

The choice to be glad |

Heavenly Father, we thank you for time to be with family and to enjoy the good things of life. We ask you to bless those who have neither, those who are alone on this day, in prison, in hospital, in travels, in care homes, at service, or living alone. Bless them through us, that we might serve them in some way.
