Thank you...

Thank you, Jesus.
Thank you for drinking the cup.
Even though You didn't want to.
Even though You asked three times if there was another option.
And three times You surrendered Your will to the Father's.
You drank deeply.
And suffered horribly.
For me.

Thank you.

I Rise...

Spring has officially sprung, and with the plethora of "new life" vibes floating about comes the realization that I must shake off the chains of my winter stupor and Blog! (That...and some friendly and not so subtle reminders from unnamed individuals. *Mom*) And so, from the murky sludge of winter's thaw...I Rise...I RISE... (Sorry, had a Maya Angelou moment there. Thanks to both of you who got it.)

Great Christmas. Wonderful family. Happy presents. Special times.

Magic Kingdom.

Tired bro.

Wide awake.


Big snow.

Days off!

Underground Railroad.

Special friends.

College Banquet.

Late curfews.

Band tour.

Spring days.

And there you have it. The picture book version. Greatly edited but adequate for today's reading skills. =)

Final thought for the day:

God is good, and as Solomon said, "not one word has failed of all His good promise." (I Kings 8:56b) Our job: know His promises. Know Him.
