fall break

Today I spent the afternoon with Gloria's sister, Evelyn. Her daughter, Lisa, was there, and Gloria's daughter, Amy, came over for a while. I was very fascinated with Amy. She seemed to put her whole heart in everything she did. She had so much passion for life! I thought after she left that I need to delight in what I do. I need to devote myself to even those small tasks I must perform each day, because they are where the Lord can use me. My song says, "the place to serve is where we are." Bill Gaither, Amy's father, has said people should bloom where they are planted. This is the best way that I praise the Lord, and in praising Him I can tear down the walls that Satan tries to build around me.
