Today's pick of wonderful fresh raspberries from our thornless bushes.

One of the reasons we love July. And they remind us of Eveline Ritchie--a true saint and the one who gave us the berry starts.

 






Addition to the playground equipment. Many thanks to all who helped to assemble, collect "Boxtops for Education" coupons and participants in our funraisers.

Well, the laundry room project is now almost done! Yesterday Michael came over to help me hang cabinets--he was alife saver!! The room is now brightly lit, the plumbing in the ceiling is mostly covered, and the room is clean and new.

I (Dan) took my class (High School U. S. History) to the Holocaust Memorial in Farmington Hills (the first such place in the U.S.). It is a sobering experience--always is. As in past trips I have made there, we concluded with a half-hour hearing the story of a holocaust survivor. Some day, these stories will only be shared on video--but there is something special about looking a person in the eye who was there. The man today was a child who was hidden by kindly gentiles who really did not even know him, separated from the rest of his family for the bulk of the war years. The depths of evil, inhumanity and deprivation were depicted today. Juxtapositioned against determination, ingenuity and adaptability--the will of the human spirit to survive--made the darkness even more stark. And illustrated the depths of evil lurking in our own souls if not repressed by a miracle from God.

A very excellent post from a missionary in Niger about modesty. You need to read this.
