Everything goes along pretty fine . . .

... and then something happens like yesterday down at Fort Hood.

How do we make sense of it?

Well, I don't think we can. And maybe aren't meant to.

A few months back my aunt (Helen (Ruth)) sent me a link to some daily devotionals. They're from her former pastor in Dallas. They are really good... and extremely timely.
Well, today's was WONDERFUL. It's about that horrific shooting. Click HERE to read it. I hope you do. (It's not long at all.)
(I thought it was so good that I linked it on facebook a few minutes ago.)

In other completely different news, did you hear about the New York Yankees manager being a Good Samaritan? It happened on his way home from winning the World Series. Click HERE for the great story. I mean, it is GREAT... and it sounds like he even put himself in danger to do it.

In still other COMPLETELY DIFFERENT news, did you know this year marks SESAME STREET's 40th anniversary? Whoa. That makes me feel old. I mean, I was seventeen year's old when it started. That tells you it was never part of my childhood.... ah, but I bet most of you don't know who Captain Kangaroo is (was)! Got you there!!

I hope you have a great weekend... and don't forget to pray for the families affected by that terrible shooting.

What an inspirational post Nancy! Thanks for sharing those links.

I, of course, remember Captain Kangaroo, Mr. Green Jeans, the Dancing Bear, and the Magic Blackboard that did those Picture Pages. Mr. Moose and the ping pong balls, Bunny Rabbit and his carrots, and the cartoons of Tom Terrific and Lariat Sam. I watched Captain Kangaroo every morning before school while I ate breakfast. It was my favorite show.

Speaking of Good Samaritans, you need to ask Ryan tonight about the accident he encountered on Wednesday on his way home from school.

See you soon!

I know about Captain Kangaroo! He was weird.

I loved Capitan Kangaroo! And Betty Lou and the House with the Magic Window. That may have just been a local show in Des Moines, though.
