The Word

  • 1 Corinthians 16:14
    Do everything in love.
  • Philippians 4:6, 7
    Don't worry about anything, but in everything, through prayer and petition with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses every thought, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Sheepish Annie

Anne Frank's story is powerful and one that influenced me rather strongly when I was younger. It certainly does make one reflect on how lucky we are to live in our time and place even if it does come with it's own challenges.

Hard to believe your mom's visit is at the half-way mark!!!


Glad to see your post -- missed you but glad you and your mom have time together.

Anne's life was certainly difficult, but seeing it through her parents' eyes, as you have showed us, must have been even more heartwrenching. We are certainly blessed in our country.


We got to see Anne Frank's hiding place in Amsterdam when we were there, years ago. It was very moving.

We are blessed.


The Devil's Arithmetic is a movie that I'd recommend - it gets a little preachy in parts, but also makes you think. The question for me is, that injustice and genocide is still going on in the world today, what am I doing to make the world a better place? So I really liked that you combined your post on Ann Frank with the opportunity to help others.


I remember reading Anne Frank's diary many years ago and it was so touching and sad. I cried so much, reading that book. What a courageous and special person she was. We do have so much to be thankful for.

Tell your mom I send my best wishes!!! Huggs, G
