Blue Monday - Remember When??

It's Blue Monday.
Go on over to Smilin' Sally's to see more wonderful treasures,
and be sure to thank her for putting this on.

Blue Monday

I didn't have any blue to post today, but then saw these old pics in the coffee table.
It was really interesting looking at theses, and surprising
the feelings and memories that came up.





Can you find me??
Guess the grade we were in??
(This is two different years).


Ever wonder about the people in these old pics?
What they are doing now?
What made some smile, and some not?

Were they too sad to smile?
And if they were too sad, what were they sad from?
Are they still sad now?
Are they smiling now?

If we see someone who seems sad do we take the time to let them know we care?
Do we carry a part of their burden and help lighten their load?
Or do we have too much burden of our own?

"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened,
and I will give you rest."
Matt. 11:28

Those pictures are great! I remember these days well. I was always excited because we got out of class for about 15 minutes. :)
