Go ahead – eat till you are full and come back for leftovers at a later time! I have enjoyed the stimulation of Twitter and have benefited greatly from the wisdom of many others. The things that others have learned from, and then shared with me, spontaneously encourage my own learning on a daily basis. I share some of the feast below and if you like a particular Tweet source, sign up to follow them!

A word may be all it takes to set somebody’s heart on fire or break it in two. F. Buechner
If every teacher asked every kid “What are you passionate about?” & recorded & used the answers, our education would improve overnight.
“Talent is not in short supply. Passion is.”
Technology provides tools (nouns) to do things (verbs). FOCUS ON THE VERBS & use the most up-to-date nouns you can.
The first act of God (ad extra) was not resistance, but creation; the first word of God was not negation, but affirmation.
“Accepted in Christ, we now run the race ‘for the joy that is set before us’ rather than ‘for fear that comes behind us’.”
