Life is cyclical.  From sunrise to sunset, everything moves season to season, upsides and downsides, highs and lows.  I think it is difficult for us in the Western world, with our Western mindset, to comprehend the principle of time and season.  We believe anything less than the high is unproductive and wasted time.

I love you more

Jackson and I have this little game we play with each other at bedtime.  I say, “I love you,” to which he replies, “I love you more.”  Then I say, “No, I love you more,” and he pushes back with, “No, I love you more…” and on and on it goes.  Jackson, typically, will say, [...]

Jesus Said A Prayer For Us

In John 17 Jesus prayed a prayer for his disciples.  And while he was praying he was thinking about me and you.  Some 2000 years ago my face flashed through the mind of my Savior moments before he was arrested and sentenced to death.

(Once upon a time…)
“Early in the morning, as he (Jesus) was on his way back to the city, he was hungry.  Seeing a fig tree by the road, he went up to it but found nothing on it except leaves.  Then he said to it, ‘May you never bear fruit again!’  Immediately the tree withered.” [...]
