God Weeps with Me

“Jesus wept.”

John 11:35

Growing up in the church, this was always my favorite verse to turn to when one of my Bible teachers or Sunday school teachers would ask us to memorize a verse. Everyone knows this verse because it is the shortest verse in the Bible. I always wondered about this verse and why they didn’t just tack it onto the preceding verse or the following one. Why have a verse that is only two words long?

Tiny Tim, a Mouse and More

With Thanksgiving only two days away, I have been doing some thinking about this past year and the amazing things that cause me to give thanks. It is easy to go around the table at Thanksgiving, ask everyone what they are thankful for, and hear the usual answers like, “I am thankful for my family” or “I am thankful for Jesus.” Now, don’t get me wrong, both answers are awesome and VERY true, but this year I wanted to go a little deeper and decided to think about each member of my family and what each of them has taught or shown me.

Child-like Excitement

When I travel, I love to people watch. Whether it is a short or long layover I have to endure, I try to stop and check out my fellow travelers. I honestly don’t think you can find a better slice of our world today than by watching the movement through an airport concourse. Preppies, jocks, knuckleheads, weirdos, businessmen, foreigners, regulars and newbies….this airport has them all.

This week while I was traveling, I once again spent some time at the airport gallery and noticed that there is one kind of traveler that I love to see more than any other, kids.
