Read this today.

Gracious God,
our sins are too heavy to carry,
too real to hide,
and too deep to undo.

Forgive what our lips tremble to name,
what our hearts can no longer bear,
and what has become for us a consuming fire of judgement.

Set us free from a past that we cannot change;

open to us a future in which we can be changed;

and grant us grace to grow
more and more in your likeness and image,

through Jesus Christ,
the light of the world. Amen

A first

Esther: When can i have a ceremony

Me: When you become Prime Minister

Shiloh: I didn't think Girls could be Prime Minister

Me: Well it is rare now, but it will be far more normal by the time Esther is Prime Minister.

Me: Hey Buddy that's what's so special about the ceremony today. This is the first time there has ever been a Black president of the United States.

Shiloh: Cool.

Me: You bet it is buddy!

Shiloh: I guess that's why they're having such a big party.

Me: You bet it is Buddy!
