A Life for a Life

                from A Life for a Life

    Oh, the comfort—
    the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person—
    having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words,
    but pouring them all right out,
    just as they are,
    chaff and grain together;
    certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them,
    keep what is worth keeping,
    and then with the breath of kindness blow the rest away.

  4. I\’m only on chapter four of the Koontz book and I\’m sucked in. I kept trying to "get away" and go read this weekend but it didn\’t work. It is really good sofar – I have never read a Koontz book before and I love his writting style! You should buy it. Or wait until I\’m done and I\’ll tell you if it stays as good as it is now!
     
    Hope you had a great holiday weekend!

  8. Beautiful!
    Ryan\’s project was to build a 44\’ foot bridge way up in the woods at Camp Good News (plus a horse hitch area). For those other readers, Camp Good News is not a Boy Scout camp, which would make the project ineligible for Eagle work. It was quite the project as we had to do most of the work right on the spot. It was great, especially since it brought back the old ways of doing things. He dedicated it to his grandfather who has volunteered hundreds of hours trailblazing for the camp.
    You bet Sharon was glad to be rid of that yellow shirt (and I agree with both of you).
    Yours will be a great week!
