My favourite colour is purple. I like most colours, except that I'm not too fond of yellow. I'm a teacher, a student, a wife and a step-mom to four young adult-ish kids. My favourite room is my craft room. I like to play with photography, paper, scrapbooking, book and card making. Thanks for checking out my blog!

1st week of Lent, story #1

So the act.s relentless acts of justice story of the week can be read here.

I've been thinking of Sylvie and her children today. I wondered what time they got up and when they got to work. I am especially moved when I hear that children want to go to school, dream about going to school, and they can't. Children should go to school.

So this week, for the focus on 'worthless', I am trying the living more simply idea by not purchasing anything that is not needed for basic survival. I will not buy coffee or meals out. I will make do with what is in my fridge. I know my fridge is way more than Sylvie and her children see in a long stretch of time. So it is a little step only. I will also be thinking of Sylvie each day.

  1. Thanks for blogging your thoughts, Joan. I'm participating in this as well, and find your reflections both encouraging and challenging. This week I'm aiming to eat only $14 worth of food (still debating whether to put Elizabeth through this, though that would sure heighten the feeling of "lacking" if I can't even feed my family well, right?). May God bless you as you take steps to enter into Sylvie's world.
