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.”

"Who do you love most in this world?""God.""When did you find it most difficult to love God?""Childhood.""Why during childhood?""Because I always wondered why things happened to me.""How long did you wonder why?""Until I found God, then I knew why.""Why?""Because people aren’t bad, they’re sick. And sick people do bad things."

Truth.

"Who do you love most in this world?"
"God."
"When did you find it most difficult to love God?"
"Childhood."
"Why during childhood?"
"Because I always wondered why things happened to me."
"How long did you wonder why?"
"Until I found God, then I knew why."
"Why?"
"Because people aren’t bad, they’re sick. 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.

Snow day macros…

The image above is from the 2006 Oscars. These were the five nominees for Best Actor. We are without two of them tonight. Heath Ledger died in 2008 and Phillip Seymour Hoffman died today, both brilliant artists gone too soon, both fathers and sons and brothers and friends, both lives taken by drug overdoses. If you want to look closer, Joaquin Phoenix lost his brother River to a drug overdose in 1993. Beyond that, Joaquin was nominated for his role in Walk the Line. He played Johnny Cash, the musical legend who, in real life, struggled for many years with drug addiction. 
These famous names represent millions less known, millions of stories cut short, families with so much forever missing. Children shouldn’t grow up without parents and parents shouldn’t have to bury their children. 
This is what i’ve come to believe: There is much at stake. There are lives in the balance and ripples that push on for decades. Addiction is an awful beast to beat. It’s never easy and it’s never over and it will be a fight renewed each morning. But it’s possible. i think of my uncle and my buddy Denny and so many people i’ve met on the road over the last eight years. Their lives are undeniable evidence that it’s possible to change, that it’s worth it to try and to keep trying, worth it to fight and keep fighting. Because this life is worth living. Because you are loved and made to be loved and made to give love and to experience a thousand wonderful things.
We’re all in this together. It’s okay to be honest. It’s okay to ask for help. It’s okay to say you’re stuck, or that you’re haunted or that you can’t begin to let go. We can all relate to those things. Screw the stigma that says otherwise. Break the silence and break the cycle, for you are more than just your pain. You are not alone. And people need other people.
