As an English professor, I’m always interested in learning new words—particularly words that describe a common occurrence. I had no idea, for instance, that the billowy trail left behind by a jet is called a “contrail.” I learned this weekend that the scent outside after it rains is called “petrichor.” Wasn’t it a blessing to enjoy the “petrichor” that followed Friday’s much-needed rain? This new word reminded me of the song that likens the name of Jesus to the “fragrance after the rain.” How good it is to be refreshed and blessed by the name of our Lord! We will welcome to our campus today the Executive Committee of our Board of Trustees: Harold Wayne Hankins, Mary Childs, Linda Gholston, and David Hamilton. Thank you for your service to BMC. Tomorrow is the annual faculty-student softball game. Play hard and have fun!
Have a wonderful week!

Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. Matthew 22:37
