remember. today, of course, is memorial day, by definition a day of remembering. and while i certainly hope that your day is happy and full of the best kinds of joys, i also hope that you find some way and time to remember how it is that these joys came to you. yes, of course i am thinking about the sacrifices of women and men who served our country whose service included the hefty price of their lives. even if you don't know any of them, i hope you find a way to remember them somehow, and those who grieve them still. but i am also thinking of something even more poignant and powerful, at least for me. when i think about remembering how it is that we have come to enjoy such blessedness, i am hoping you'll consider that every good and perfect gift comes from above (james 1:17). i am hoping we might take a lesson from the poetry of the Hebrews, who never failed to take the time to remember what God had done for them (check out psalm 105, as one example). i am hoping
a collection of words about God and life and art and baseball and football and hope and my family and my ministry and music and the immense joy in each moment of all of it. it's a record of being human. welcome.
