Happy Father's Day!

Fathers are the best friends The loving mentors, loyal guides, kind protectors Brave heroes who are valorous Children seeing the world in their fathers Seeing love in their Father’s Eyes, ways, plays, hoping to be likewise Following in their foot steps
To be just like them To be as honorable and just like The best man they know Being as kind, loving, faithful to others As selfless, serving others with Kindness, raising their children opening their hearts With love when they fell When they cried over little bruises as They cried over not having Their own way, when they don’t understand What is right and wrong
Giving their all for children Who will grow up being amazed at The wonderous of their Fathers Both Heavenly and earthly, hoping to be More like them in spirit More like them in actions, and ways.
Thank the Lord for Fathers Who aren’t perfect, yet they are perfect Thank the Lord for being Our forgiving, gracious, loving, Heavenly Father Thank the Lord for giving Us our Fathers who are our heroes

Happy Father…

Chapter II Part I of To Zander. With Love, Hanna!

Chapter II Xander stared at the word Decoy. He and Hanna had never used Decoy as a game. It was a code that he and Hanna had made after their Father died, so if they needed help they could tell each other without other people knowing what they were saying. D.E.C.O.Y. Danger. Entrapped. Come. Overwhelmed. And finally, the Y stood for You’re the Best. “If one of us were in danger, we would send Decoy to the other. We made the code inside of a code and only the two of us knew of Decoy.” Xander mumbled to himself, “How does Decoy explain where she is?” Oakland watched Xander pace on the porch, waiting for an explanation. “Xander, I guess you don’t know me by my first name Oakland, but you’ll know who I am from my last name Soaring-Eagle.” Oakland said to the now wide eyed young man. “You are Dad’s friend?

Anne of Green Gables Spotlight

Eleven-year-old orphan Anne Shirley has just arrived at Green Gables, and already her guardians want to send her back. First, she’s not the boy the Cuthberts expected. Second, she talks too much.

But when tragedy hits, Anne must choose between her dreams and the only home she’s ever known. In this beloved coming-of-age story, Lucy Maud Montgomery drew from her own experiences growing up in Canada during the nineteenth century to introduce generations of readers to one of literature’s most original and inspiring characters.
How do I forget to do a spotlight?
Anyway, I am rereading Anne of Green Gables, and thought it would be a good book to do as a spotlight. I will review it soon. (I hope…

Open the eyes of my heart.

The Wheel on the School Spotlight

Why do the storks no longer come to the little Dutch fishing village of Shora to nest? It was Lina, one of the six schoolchildren who first asked the question, and she set the others to wondering. And sometimes when you begin to wonder, you begin to make things happen. So the children set out to bring the storks back to Shora. The force of their vision put the whole village to work until at last the dream began to come true. 
It's been awhile since I read The Wheel on the School :( and I should read it again soon.
