the smell of steam from the dryer mixed with the scent of rain
rainy Saturdays perfect for curling up to read
my former students (now pre-teens) who come to my classroom after school to talk about The Hunger Games trilogy. I try to convince them to join Team Peeta. They roll their eyes and say things like “Of course, you’d like Peeta. You just don’t get Gale.” Then I kick them out of my classroom for blasphemy.

This morning while getting ready for work, I hit the shuffle jackpot. You know it’s going to be a good day when your iPhone spits out this delicious combination of songs:
We’re a rag-tag group of people vigilantly pursuing self-sustaining educational & employment opportunities with and for students and their families living in rural communities in developing countries. We believe in asking hard questions like, “What do you need and how can we help?” We believe that communities know their needs better than we do and that it’s our job to listen. We’re big on being kind for the sake of kindness and we believe that even the smallest acts of kindness can make a big difference. We believe in keeping vigil over one another and watching for opportunities to help, no matter how far off the beaten path those opportunities take us. We’re vigilant in our belief that God has given each person unique gifts and that one of the highest forms of worship is using those gifts to serve others. We believe God has a purpose for each life and Vigilante Kindness is our purpose. Join us as we live out wild adventures in service of God and others. Join us in committing acts of Vigilante Kindness.
