I've been thinking about light…

Part 2 | In an introduction to the song I Can Only Imagine, Wynonna Judd shared advice that her mother, Naomi, gave her… “Let them see your brokenness. Let them see the cracks in your armor—that’s how the light gets out!” As a believer, we are instructed to put on armor in Ephesians 6 but how novel to think that the manifestation of the light of God would flow through cracks in that armor!

I've been thinking about loyalty...

William Nesbitt was a navy doctor in WWII, assigned to the 7th Naval Beach Battalion that landed on Omaha Beach on June 6, 1944. He shares a “foxhole” story for our edification:
Word reached me that Mike, our senior medical officer, was missing in action. His ship had been sunk by an artillery shell. Two days later he appeared in our bivouac area. He had been rescued from the water and taken back to England. Finding him uninjured and fit for duty, the Navy sent him back to his battalion on Omaha Beach.

I've been thinking about left field...

Lenore Wolke of Wayne, New Jersey says when a mother is raising her children, "it is like she is a softball coach. She runs the game and makes sure they get to all the bases they have to and they get there safely." Then their sons get married and the mother gets positioned in the outfield. "The son is at bat, his wife is on first base, his job is at second base and his wife's family is on third base... Mothers of sons are out in "left field" waiting for the ball to come their way."
