See for Yourself

On a roll

I attended a roller derby. I was expecting a brawl-type atmosphere, which was erroneous. Today's roller derby skaters do block and push and pull to accomplish each "jam," but it's done with integrity, good sportsmanship, and skill.

A little pruning

See for Yourself - There's that passage from John 15: 2 that explains a lot about the human condition and the reality of suffering around us: "He removes every branch in me that bears no fruit. Every branch that bears fruit he prunes to make it bear more fruit."

A lost art

See for Yourself - The beautiful longhand with its display-card-quality perfect shaping of the letters belied her years of teaching the primary grades. I, for one, remember vividly the penmanship classes in grade school several times a week.

A little love

See for Yourself - "If you show them love, they'll run their hearts out for you," so shared an unlikely horse expert. Unlikely only because I wasn't expecting one of the banquet servers to tell me about the horse track.
