There is a time for everything... Ecclesiastes 3:1
We are headed to Ohio today to return the girlie to her school home. It's been such a joy having her home but there is a time for everything and now it's time for school.
My post today Is one to start you thinkin a bit. How would you define Mercy? This week the middle lovelies started our Year of Mercy lessons and that was the first thing I asked them. Before I share some of the amazing things they are discovering and sharing I'd just like you to do some thinking about what Mercy looks like. To start your thinking here is the working definition we're using..."Mercy is showing kindness instead of meanness. Mercy is showing kindness even when it isn't shown to us."
What do you think? I'll be back next week with more but just ask yourself why is this such a big deal that Pope Francis has declared this the Jubilee Year of Mercy, inviting the whole world; peoples of all faith, races and background to join in? Why? What does it matter?
A Seed To Plant: Just do some thinking!
Blessings on your day!
