Choose a Spanish book or a newspaper. Look at a paragraph and pretend it's a sea and you're diving for words. It will be interesting to put them in columns titled, "Words I Know" and "Words I Don't Know."
Take the words you don't know and go to the web and type in "Sentence Maker Spanish." When you get the page of the sentence maker, type in the words you don't know one at a time. Can you figure out what the word means from the sentence that is given? Use the other words in the sentence to give you clues.
This is an interesting way to get close to words and paragraphs. It will help you pay... (more)

preacher314 faces of the suffering
Again I saw all the oppressions that are practiced
under the sun. Look, the tears of the oppressed—
with no one to comfort them! On the side of their
oppressors there was power—with no one to
comfort them. And I thought the dead, who have
already died, more fortunate than the living, who
are still alive; but better than both is the one who
has not yet been, and has not seen the evil deeds
that are done under the sun.
How often have I lain beneath rain on a strange
roof, thinking of home.
Lord, help us to see the face of God in the faces
of all who suffer. May it move us to act. Amen.
