” Make Me A Blessing to Someone Today”

Dear Reader:

A great God Wink yesterday appeared while going through a book shelf… the first book in the Mitford series fell out and I read the introduction inside the front cover.

The summary read: Father Tim finds himself running on empty. Just that one line made me so happy-even Father Tim found himself in a similar predicament as myself ! It happens to everyone!

Father Tim has helped so many people discover a new lease on life… now can he find one? Haven’t we all found ourselves wondering the same thing! Proverbs: Physician heal thyself? Before attempting to change other others’ lives, make sure we aren’t guilty of the same faults.

And how does God fill Father Tim back up? With a huge black dog named Barbabas, his secretary Emma who treats him like a ten-year-old, a hostile mountain

boy named Dooley who is thrust in his care. And… Cynthia Coppersmith-the soon to be love of his life!

God has such a wonderful sense of humor as He guides us along new paths unforeseen or expected.

We just have to keep believing God’s purpose for each of us is connected to all the new life experiences God plants in front of us.

So until tomorrow Father restore my strength and curiosity to continue searching for the people who will add heart and soul to our being … so we can then pass it on!

About Becky Dingle

I was born a Tarheel but ended up a Sandlapper. My grandparents were cotton farmers in Laurens, South Carolina and it was in my grandmother’s house that my love of storytelling began beside an old Franklin stove. When I graduated from Laurens High School, I attended Erskine College (Due West of what?) and would later get my Masters Degree in Education/Social Studies from Charleston Southern. I am presently an adjunct professor/clinical supervisor at CSU and have also taught at the College of Charleston. For 28 years I taught Social Studies through storytelling. My philosophy matched Rudyard Kipling’s quote: “If history were taught in the form of stories, it would never be forgotten.” Today I still spread this message through workshops and presentations throughout the state. The secret of success in teaching social studies is always in the story. I want to keep learning and being surprised by life…it is the greatest teacher. Like Kermit said, “When you’re green you grow, when you’re ripe you rot.”

    Becky…we need another ice cream date soon. Hopefully this delta variant will pass soon so we can feel better about not exposing someone. Love you lots.
