Peace

Be at peace. "In mercy and truth atonement is provided for iniquity; and by the fear of the Lord one departs from evil. When a man's ways please the Lord, He makes even his enemies to be at peace with him." - Proverbs 16:6 ... at peace. Sounds like a location.

It could be worse. "Later, Jesus found the man at the Temple and said to him, “See, you are well now. Stop sinning so that something worse does not happen to you.” - John 5:14 It is possible to STOP.

"The LORD does not listen to the wicked,but he hears the prayers of those who do right. Good news makes you feel better. Your happiness will show in your eyes. If you listen to correction to improve your life, you will live among the wise. Those who refuse correction hate themselves, but those who accept correction gain understanding.

Second day going home smelling of alcohol and tobacco. Nate and I went to lunch at Jack in the Box and encountered a young man recently released from prison who was very inebriated and seemed to exhale the f-bomb.

One of the things I love about Max is how much we look alike. There's something about imagining a little version of yourself running up to you and loving who you are as an adult. What does that look like for you? What if the child you were ran up to you today? Saw

"I wish you knew today what would bring you peace. But now it is hidden from you." - Luke 19:42 Jesus didn't just make this statement, He cried this statement. We do, too, don't we? We think we know, and then we know we don't. He knows, and since His resurrection, He's hiding nothing.
