Karyn (my wife) told me that everyone at home has been trying to pull apart these two plastic baby sipping cups that have been pressed together for days (not sure for how long). The smaller cup was so far inside the larger one, that there was no edge to hold on to.
I want to move to a place where there are no tears and there is no sorrow, but that may have to wait until beyond tomorrow.
There is suffering here until death from our birth , we must strive to bring healing while we’re still here on earth.
If we don’t do this- I ask you, who will? We can’t leave our poor earth to those who would kill.
I will pray for the healers to not leave prematurely, while those who love evil can go fast and early.
Unless they would change, and join in the fight- to defeat selfish suffering and uphold what’s right.

“You are also directed to tell them, `Do this: Take some carts from Egypt for your children and your wives, and get your father and come. Never mind about your belongings, because the best of all Egypt will be yours.’ ”
-Genesis 45:19-20 (NIV)
Because my family can’t be replaced, but all of my possessions can be.
Once I have a possession that replaces another, the unused possession becomes relatively useless to me, and simply becomes a burden to manage.
My first thought as I imagined this offer from Pharaoh was to think of it as a generous company sponsored distant move. Any distant move at this point would not be very appealing to me. I really like living in California.
After further consideration, I thought: God did make this offer to me. He is preparing a place for me and I am encouraged to invite my family to come, but not to worry about bringing my possessions, because He has more than I could ever earn to provide for me and my family in this new place. I may have to wait a lifetime before I leave, but it will seem like only a moment in history.

- Possessions Are not worth worrying about
- Pay attention to the king
- There is at least one better place than California
My wife Karyn called me today and told me that she had sad news and funny news. I couldn’t imagine what type of news could be both sad and funny, so I assumed that there were two separate unrelated events of which she would shortly inform me.
