It's been an interesting week. It seems that the Middle East and parts of Africa are about ready to explode. It remains to be seen how all this is going to shake out, and hopefully the U.S. government will come down on the right side of freedom in that region. My own week was a bit frustrating. I'm learning that I can't fix the kids that I work with, that the only thing I can do is love them and leave the rest in God's hands. That's hard for me to do, because I want to see results. I guess that's where trust comes in. :)
So anyway, here are the links for the week:
