I'd asked our Reading Room Librarian to please order extra copies of the June 23 Kids' Sentinel so that I could give each child in my Sunday School class his or her own copy of it to keep. Before Sunday School on June 22, our Reading Room Librarian gave them to me. I showed them to my 4-5-year-old pupils and told them I had one for each of them and asked if they wanted me to give it to them on Sunday or mail it to them. Every child wanted me to mail it—some even wanted me to mail it that day! I explained the Post Office was closed on Sunday, and I would mail one to each child on Monday, and that was OK with everybody. Monday, I mailed a copy to each child with a post-it note attached. On the note I wrote, "Hi! This Sentinel is yours to keep and enjoy! Have fun with it!"


Because of a four-month loss of mobility, I was hesitant to resume driving, when I encountered the article, "Are 'don't do's' holding you back?" by Lynn Jackson in the June 30 Sentinel["Healing dysfunction"]. In her message the words "uninterrupted goodness" lifted me out of my fear. I knew I could drive again, and immediately I did. What a sense of freedom—not just that I could drive again, which was nice, but that I wasn't full of fear; that was gone. There's no interruption of goodness for God's child.
