Everyday Heroes

Heroes can be "regular" people who enrich our lives just being who they are, knowing that others are on the journey with them, following the Word's command to love your neighbor.

Amy, for her love of words and things that are true, the best hope for the next generation.

Laura, student assistant extraordinaire, who magically makes copies appear on my desk.

Ann, whom I've never met in person, yet she blesses me every day.

Danny Joe, who keeps his pockets full of candy to sweeten up the day.

Super neighbors.

Joyce, quiet but wise beyond measure.

The staff at the post office.

Ern and Lucy, in their eighties, who live life to the fullest, enjoying every step of it.

Charlotte, who always does what she says she will do.

Sonny and Dot, who feed me from iron pots of stew.

Brenda W, beautiful and so strong.

Mike, for years of music. be continued
