"If the God you believe in as an idea doesn’t start showing up in what happens to you in your own life, you have as much cause for concern as if the God you don’t believe in as an idea does start showing up. It is absolutely crucial, therefore, to keep in constant touch with what is going on in your own life’s story and to pay close attention to what is going on in the stories of others’ lives. If God is present anywhere, it is in those stories that God is present. If God is not present in those stories, then they are scarcely worth telling." ~ Frederick Buechner

May the Fourth

I'm very sorry for the long absence here. It has been a very busy few weeks, the highlight of which was that my parents came to visit from overseas! 

More on that later. I have something of much more significance to share with you today.

Not really. 

But it is pertinent to this day only.

This morning, as N was getting dressed, he said, quite matter-of-factly,  "Today is May the fourth."
Me: "Yep. Tomorrow is Children's Day in Korea."
N, smiling hugely: "Today is May the fourth!"
Me, trying to figure out what is significant about today and whose birthday I've missed: "Yes..."
N, sticking out his chest: "Today is May the fourth!"

Then I notice he's wearing one of his Star Wars shirts and Rebel Alliance belt buckle.

Thanks to "Aunt Juh-nette!" for the Star Wars hoodie!

May the Force be with you today.

*A shout-out to N's Uncle George for igniting his interest in Star Wars.
