Hein Sight...

“The people who hanged Christ never, to do them justice, accused him of being a bore — on the contrary; they thought him too dynamic to be safe. It has been left for later generations to muffle up that shattering personality and surround him with an atmosphere of tedium. We have very effectively pared the claws of the Lion of Judah, certified him “meek and mild,” and recommended him as a fitting household pet for pale curates and pious old ladies.”
— Dorothy Sayers, The Greatest Drama
“Blueprints for the future are a fools errand.”

Tantrums…

My child’s attempts at tantrums are sometimes laughable. She barely tries, but there is still anger there. Still I’m beginning to see a little more how The Lord loves us through her tantrums. As I watch her I think to myself “I love you, all the time, with all my heart. Why do you lash back at me in anger when I am only doing what’s best?” And that’s when I’m hit like a ton of bricks… isn’t that exactly what I do. Almost every day, lash out in anger at a God that loves me unconditionally, when he’s only doing what’s best?

I wonder how often he says the same phrase to me?

Emily James had an uncommonly full head of hair by the time she hit the age of 3. In fact, it was long enough to be cut and made into a wig for a childhood cancer patient, which she was happy to do. Emily’s thoughts on giving away some of her hair were blunt: “Just cut some off and give it to a kid.” Emily’s generosity and kindness should serve as a prompt for us all to share a little more with those in need. Her mother, Amy James, sums up the act: “We hope that as Emily matures she will learn to make her own selfless decisions that inspire and bring hope, even if there is a cost.”

And sick people do bad things."

Truth.

Pure joy looks like this little girl discovering rain for the first time. We hope this video reminds you there is much to smile over (maybe even clap and giggle about) each and every day.
