A song from my all-time favorite Christmas album:

Three guys on a KC sports radio station today joyously reminisced about a well-known local man who died not too long ago and who “lived Chiefs football 365 days a year.”

How sad. It made me think of Jesus’ words:

“If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake and the gospel’s will save it. For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and forfeit his life? For what can a man give in return for his life? For whoever is ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him will the Son of Man also be ashamed when he comes in the glory of his Father with the holy angels” (Mark 8:34-38).

"Hi, I'm mowing the lawn just like Daddy."


"Sometimes Daddy's lawnmower breaks down. This is what he does."

Hebrews 3:3, “For Jesus has been counted worthy of more glory than Moses–as much more glory as the builder of a house has more honor than the house itself.”

This song is on Andrew Peterson’s “Behold the Lamb of God” album.

The Elisha Foundation: www.theelishafoundation.org

From the website: “Justin and Tamara Reimer founded The Elisha Foundation in 2005, being spurred on by their eldest child Elisha, who has Down Syndrome. At the special moment of his birth Justin and Tamara recognized the unique call that God had placed on their lives – to minister to families of people with special needs. The Reimers want to see Jesus made much of through the unique blessing of a special needs child. After over eight years of waiting and praying the Lord opened the door of ministry to them and the inaugural Elisha Foundation Retreat was kicked off in December of 2005.” (Click here to follow Justin Reimer on Twitter.)
