Friday Letters 3.27.15

Dear Spring, I thought we were past this?  Freeze warning tonight? Seriously, get it together, wasn’t it 80 yesterday?

Dear AK, Thank you for being honest about being in trouble at school this week.  I know you will work harder to not play during lunch.

Dear Philippians, Way to call me out this morning.

Do all things without grumbling or disputing, that you may be blameless and innocent, children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and twisted generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world.  2:14-15

I have been grumbling a little too much lately. I get it.  Hey, when is this two month study going to end?  There might be other books in the Bible I need to check out.

Dear Sadie, Thanks for being my accountability partner, not just in exercise but also in the rest of my life!  I am loving our 6 AM torture sessions work outs.

Dear Orchid on my desk, I loved you, I really did.  I know I don’t show it very well but I am just not very good with plants.  I don’t know if you will make it to next Friday, if not RIP.

♥ Elizabeth
