Pamela's Daybook: June 14th

Today: I wasn't able to go with RB last night. It was a "terrible, no good, very bad day." I've been working double speed this morning. One of RB's students celebrated her last class last night, complete with a luscious strawberry cake the graduate baked. She sent me a piece. It was so fresh, with strawberries in the not-too-sweet cake and a light icing. Unfortunately, she's a caterer and doesn't use a recipe. I think it could easily be made with a natural sweetener.  

At my writing desk: I got my article in early afternoon. Worked on blog promotion, and just now getting to curriculum. I'll be working this evening. I don't mind, but usually I do it first, because I think better in the mornings.

Praying for: The victims' families in the Orlando terror--still!

Thankful for: Surprise 5-minute visit from Emily.

I'm reading:  30 Days and 30 Ways of Doing Good  by Maurice Smith. It's a "read for free" book on Amazon, with practical ideas how to shelter others, along with a devotional for each day and hyperlinks to different ministries, podcasts, and printables. One of the best books I've read on the subject lately. 

Postmarking: Finished up last week's list and am ready for our new addresses.

Favorite quote: Good deeds should be done with intention, not attention. (unknown)
