~Sarah's card and poem to me.~

 Here's the sweet card (above) that my Sarah made me for Valentine's...and here is her poem!

I love Mommy because she loves me!
And Takes care of our family.
I love her because she is sweet...
And always has something good to eat.  =)
She loves God and music with her whole heart,
And she is very smart!

I love you, Mommy,
Happy Valentine's Day,

From the 1st Epistle of Clement -- Peace

"We must adhere to those who cultivate peace, not to those who merely pretend to do so"

--Such is the title of chapter 15 in "The First Epistle of Clement" which caught my eye in my reading of The Ante-Nicene Fathers. (Thanks Dad, Mom, Michael, & Beth, for buying me this 10 volume set for Christmas, 1997.)
