Last weekend I missed an opportunity to be drawn closer to Jesus.
Leigh Anne competed in a Cross Country meet on Saturday morning, and I didn’t go and watch. She suffered from an asthma attack. I got a call and heard about it around noon. I was immediately upset with myself for not being there. I felt terrible. Instead of taking the opportunity of turning my suffering over to Jesus and uniting with Him in my suffering, I suffered alone. Well…almost. As I was feeling sorry for myself for failing as a father, I became angry with Teague. I found myself wanting to blame her. I wanted to make her my scapegoat for not going to the meet. I was wallowing in my own guilt, and I wanted someone to come down into the pit with me.
The magnitude of Jesus’ love is seen in the suffering of His Passion. I pray that in my suffering that I may unite myself with the love of Jesus and be drawn into His love.
Maybe I can grow a little.
Walking in the Maize
Ryan just got a job working for a farmer that has a corn maize in his field. Groups go out and have a good time on the farm. Ryan is excited about this new job, and that makes his mom and dad excited to.
Here is the website to the Corn Maize.
