Strokes on a Word Canvas

I wish I could write something funny. 
Something that would make you smile or even laugh out loud. 
I don’t do that much — wish I could.

I mean there are funny and wonderful things left in this world. Like when our great-grand comes to visit. 
The sound of his little feet either coming or going on the floor of the hall. I smile just thinking about it. 
Or his absolute delight to give a dog biscuit to Sara who eagerly receives every touch of loving he gives her. 
The moments we spend watching birds and squirrels from the window seat – it’s one of his favorite places here. 

Friends who call just because they care.
Silly jokes made funny simply because he said it. 
Bright moon nights.
A chicken sandwich and french fries eaten side by side sitting cross-legged in the back of the SUV, watching people watch us as they drive through a local parking lot.
Now that’s funny!

If you’ve never done it. I hope you will give it a try.
A burger and fries will work just as well as chicken. 🙂

Sowing seeds in the garden box, waiting for sprouts. 
Music and snuggles on the couch.

Family. People. Creation’s beauty.
These are the things we have left. 
And most days they help us smile in spite of what is. 

He Lived Where?

Mark 2 

Born in Bethlehem   
Escaped to Egypt     
Raised in Nazareth
Lived in Capernaum

From just this information, are you able to identify the person?

Mark 2:1 After a while, Yeshua returned to K’far-Nachum [Capernaum]. The word spread that he was back, 
and so many people gathered around the house that there was no longer any room, not even in front of the door. While he was preaching the message to them, 
four men came to him carrying a paralyzed man.  source

The word spread He was back.
This is important to me. 

Needy people, sick people, honest-seeking people, curious people, and Pharisee People — they all heard He was back, and immediately they came.  Ponder that for a bit, let it simmer, and taste how delicious it is. 

The GODMAN. He was (and still is) the most loved and the most hated of people of all time. 

Matthew 4:12 When Yeshua heard that Yochanan [John] had been put in prison, he returned to the Galil [Galilee];
13 but he left Natzeret [Nazareth] and came to live in K’far-Nachum [Capernaum], a lake shore town near the boundary between Z’vulun [Zabulon] and Naftali [Nephthalim]source

So The LORD had a place in Capernaum. 
We could study The GODMAN endlessly and we would never come to an end of Him.

We have the GOD-given Right to LIVE RIGHT in this WRONG world.
