Finding this video yesterday and the other variations of skits similar to it reminded me of the power of drama. Such a simple skit coupled with a powerful song from Lifehouse creates an unforgettableimage of Christ's love.
Yesterday, after watching a few versions, I sobbed. Full on ugly cry.
Was it due to my gratefulness of Jesus's love for me? Was it my astonishment of how much He also loves you? Maybe it was the vivid picture that no matter how far we stray from Jesus, He is faithful...waiting for you and me. And once we fix our eyes on Him, He'll hold back the tidal waves of evil in the world because He has overcome them.

G and I agreed we'd "dunk" each other. We also discussed changing things up a bit and not donating to ALS. Instead, we chose to donate a scholarship to Girls Grace Adventure which is a discipleship oriented program for 2nd through 5th grade girls. GGA takes place at Grace Community Church in Fulton, MD, and it seeks to help girls grow deeper in their relationship with Christ, grow closer in relationships with other girls, and grow in abilities to reach out in Christ's love to communities. GGA meets on alternating Wednesdays from late September through early May.

I arrived at the BP gas station in Maple Lawn and immediately noticed a man talking to another woman at a gas pump. By her body language she wasn't very receptive to what he was sharing. By his voice, he seemed sincere and somewhat desperate.
As I turned off my car's engine and finished a text on my phone, the man walked over to a woman at the pump in front of me and began sharing his story with her. As I listened to his words, I considered just staying in my car or even driving away. For a moment, that sad, natural reaction to someone interrupting my routine bubbled up. After all, I was only there to get gas and leave, not to have someone approach me with something to sell or asking for a handout.
