Friday 8/30/13 written Sunday 8/25/13 ice skating...

We went ice skating yesterday. We haven't gone in a long time. William went with us. That was nice. He is older and doesn't go many places with us any more. We also took one of Beth's friends. We had a full car. When we got there, there were only about five other people going in. As time went on more people showed up. Open skate is for an hour and fifty minutes. After skating in a circle for that long with the same people it becomes like a neighborhood. We begin to know which people are there as families or groups, which little kids can skate so fast around everyone. We become like a new neighborhood. There together in a small area, but all too new to have spoken and introduced ourselves. We exist together, but separate for a while...then open skate is over. We can't say goodbye to them, we don't know them...we all go back to our own lives. The next time that we go it will be a different neighborhood.

August 2013 Bible verse: "But my life is worth nothing to me unless I use it for finishing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus - the work of telling others the Good News about the wonderful grace of God." Acts 20:24
