Yours forever

“Oh the joy of knowing that we are yours forever, Yours in the trials of life, and Yours in the last dread trial of death, and then Yours in resurrection, Yours throughout eternity! We do therefore worship You, O God, not under coercion, nor under terror or pressure, but cheerfully and gladly, ascribing to You praise, power, dominion, glory, and honor, world without end.”

C.H. Spurgeon

Snow kisses

I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says, “Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.” – Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

Classroom Sweet Classroom: train of thought

L: I need to go to Mexico sometime, because I need to practice my Spanish because I forget it.
Me: You need to practice your Spanish so you can speak English and Spanish really well. Then you could be an interpreter or translator. You could do a lot of things if you know two languages.
L, nodding: Uh huh.
-pause-
L: I use dental floss in my house.
