Small specification: all my Sunday school students are angels- except my son, who spends most of the lesson devising elaborate ways to escape the class – it is a very heartwarming experience!
Same ingredients, same ratios.
I took a first sip in my car. Shock and disbelief!
It simply did not taste the same. In fact, my fangs grew longer, the hair became greener and a third arm was trying to sprout from my left shoulder.
On the best day, I feel like I have spun out of my own orbit a hundred times. Running from work to home, making supper, taking care of any household chores and then rushing to whatever sport/activity on the schedule for the night. I am out of breath simply recounting what an average day sounds like for most parents.
The idea came to me for the book when I was thinking about my son and his love of superheroes. I said to my husband, I wish Philopatir understood that he already has superpowers as a Christian child that are WAY more useful than a cloak of invisibility! So that’s where the idea of the Superholies came from.
I often wish I could go around with a “closed for renovations” sign around my neck. Imagine what that would entail? People have less expectations of any establishment that is “closed for renovation”.
I had found 4 “perfect” seashells, one pebble and an intense realization- and appreciation- of God’s mercy, acceptance and His longing for our salvation.
I sat there and marveled. Before the beginning of time, before the Sun and the Moon and the Stars were fashioned, God knew that on this day, in July 2016, at this precise minute, Captain Crow’s family would be nourished by the generous hands of the little child who shared his fries.
