Wordle: Readings 8-17-13
Wordle of today's readings
(I discovered another "word cloud" site, Tagxedo, so will try that another day.)
Confession:  I used recycled photos because these pins don't work well with my Saturday-informal outfit.  The exercise still gets me to spend time with the readings.  Thanks for understanding.
