Flower Show - Inspired and Inspires

Well, guys, I haven't blogged here since Christmas Day, and if I have any readers left, hello and thanks! :)

I was touched today by a story on the BBC about homeless people having their own flower exhibition at the famous Chelsea Flower Show this year. Not only did homeless people from the Shekinah Mission build this special space, but they designed it as well, giving them confidence and a wonderful feeling of accomplishment that they could proudly share with others.

Faith and Hope

These are not just beautiful spiritual words anymore--conjoined twins Faith and Hope are alive and kicking, much to their mother and father's relief. They'll have to make a decision very soon about surgery to separate the girls, but even the fact that they are alive is a miracle in itself. The sisters each have their own heart, and even though they share a liver, amazingly this is the only organ that can regenerate itself if cut in half.

I'm looking forward to hearing a wonderfully positive outcome!

Redemption Letter from Thief

A shop in Bristol, UK has received a letter of apology and 100 pounds from someone who used to be on drugs and stole from them. Sounds like a redemption story to me!

100 and counting...

This is my 101st post, everybody! Give me a big pat on the back...

Or how about some mongo tears. This article about Poles being awarded for their good deeds in the Second World War really tugged on my heart strings.

Wanda Bulik and her sacrifice to save a three-year-old Jewish boy made me so grateful I can be with my two little dudes and watch them grow up. Ms. Bulik was recognized at the ceremony, but she kept the focus on the boy she raised for a few years: "Though she expressed satisfaction at being honored by Sunday's event, she said that what gave her the most happiness was the full life that Greenberg went on to live."
