he sits bent over with tears over the “D”.  i tell him; “that D doesn?t define you.”

i stare at the official box checked on the very official form delivered by the very official officer; “public nuisance”.  and i look down at the four paws in the air with the big belly waiting to be petted.  and i tell her; “they say you are a nuisance, if only they could see you for who you really are.”


Matthew 16 and 17

Jesus; “Who do the people say that I am?”

Disciples; “John the Baptist, Elijah, a prophet.”

Jesus; “Who do you say that I am?”

They head up a mountain, Peter, Jesus, and the brothers James and John.  Moses and Elijah join them. 

This is my Son, Whom I love, with Him I am well pleased, Listen to Him!


this morning the Lord turned the question around…..

because i’ve spent enough time thinking on who the people say that i am

 God, who do You say that i am?


tho i can?t actually head up a mountain today…i can lock myself in my room.  i can shut the door. and….

Listen to Him…..
      behold His glory…..
                and be struck

oh the Wonder
