Holy Thursday


When he had finished washing their feet, he put on his clothes and returned to his place. “Do you understand what I have done for you?” he asked them.“You call me ‘Teacher’ and ‘Lord,’ and rightly so, for that is what I am. Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another’s feet. I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you. Very truly I tell you, no servant is greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him.Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them.

John 13:12-17

people watching


People are so incredibly interesting to watch. Their hair. Theirs clothes.
Mannerisms. Personalities. Shapes and sizes. Ages.

Where is your favorite place to people watch? Mine is the subway where we are
all captive together. Wish I could take pictures but that would be too obvious and
creepy. I wouldn’t want someone taking shots of me.
