I've been mysteriously sick and that sucks but what's awesome is I have good friends who bring me food and give me rides and message me to check up on me. It's pretty cool.

Last week I tried to give a gift to a friend and I kind of preached at him about how important it is to graciously receive gifts, without a fight or without keeping score in a friendship.

God seems intent on making me eat my words.

By the end of the conversation my friend had not only refused my gift but somehow managed to work it around so that he's giving me something.

Within 24 hours 2 other friends have shown up at my doorstep with gifts.


OK, God, message received.

"In friendship...we think we have choosen our peers. In reality, a few years' difference in the dates of our births, a few more miles between certain houses, the choice of one university instead of another...the accident of a topic being raised or not raised at a first meeting--any of these chances might have kept us apart.

But, for a Christian, there are, strictly speaking no chances. A secret master of ceremonies has been at work. Christ, who said to the disciples, 'You have not chosen me, but I have chosen you,' can truly say to every group of Christian friends, 'You have not chosen one another but I have chosen you for one another.'

The friendship is not a reward for our discriminating and good taste in finding one another out. It is the instrument by which God reveals to each of us the beauties of others."

C.S. Lewis in The Four Loves

That was a good day.

I'm currently job hunting. It's surprising how many openings ask for a recent photo. And tragically for the world and lucky for me, this white face, blue eyes and curly auburn hair give me a distinct advantage, particularly in the #EFL field.

That's messed up.

Recently, work has been kind of rough. But my students, my kiddos...they light up my life.

Have I mentioned that I'm looking at moving this summer? On the short list is Turkey. But things like this make me wonder how likely I would be to be in the middle of a war...

I had a +Google+​ album of all my +Snapseed​ edits. This album automatically converted to a Google photos collection/album. Does it still exist here on the Plus? Is there a way to automatically transfer all those photos into a Plus Collection?
