What's this?

Yes, it's a hard boiled egg. :-)
But it is also, the perfect visual to discuss
the Earth's crust, mantle and core! ;-)

Thoughts on Kindness

"Be kind. Everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle."
~attributed to both T.H. Thompson and John Watson

"Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear
and the blind can see."
~Mark Twain

"You cannot do a kindness too soon,
for you never know how soon it will be too late."
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

"The kindest word in all the world is the unkind word, unsaid."
~Author Unknown

"...always try to be kind to each other..."
I Thessalonians 5:15

I taught my Bible class to remember this verse, by asking them, "What happens at your house at 5:15?" Is Daddy getting done with work? Is Mommy trying to get supper on the table? Is everyone hungry? Is the phone ringing? Is the dog barking? Are the children fussing? Then it's a good time to...always try to be kind to each other! :-)
