Conversations with Maximus

This little gem of a conversation occurred a few days ago when I was at Dad and Mom's with the kids to get some pre-holiday cooking done.

Me: Maximus, would you like to watch a movie?
Max: Can we watch it in the movie weeter?
Me: (chuckling) Weeter? Do you mean movie theater?
Max: Oh, "weeter" is in Spanish.

In Honor of Stephanie

Love and prayers to Warner and all of Warner and Stephanie's family. Stephanie's
long and courageous fight with cancer and her young death is a poignant reminder that we live in a horribly and tragically broken world. But it will not be so forever– as Stephanie has now seen with her own eyes.

And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying,

"Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God.He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away."

He who was seated on the throne said,

"I am making everything new!" Then he said, "Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true."
