The Good News This Week…May 2

News media likes to show the sad. Here’s some of the good I found this week.

Sharing a Moment:

Edd and I spent 3 days together talking about nothing but us; not the kids, not the jobs, not the house…just us. We should have done this 10 years ago.

Sharing Stories:

Roots Remake: I was just thinking I wanted to find a time for the girls to watch Roots. Usually, I’m not a fan of remakes. This time, I bet it will only be more rich and even more accurate.Like Kunta Kinte fought to tell his story over and over again, so must we.”

Obama’s Anger Translator: Ok, if you’re not a fan of the President you don’t have to watch. But I LOLed for real at this one. 

The Vastness of Space: I love how this puts everything in perspective. I also love how some people are so sure we are the only planet with life on it. I don’t think we’ll figure it out in my lifetime.

Women and Girls are the Secret To Ending Poverty: I really believe this. I DO hope we’ll figure this out in my lifetime.
The Good in Baltimore: We saw the videos of the ugly, scary, bad, but there was a lot of good, too. Imagine how our perception would have been just a little different if more of this was shown. Prayers to that city. Prayers to our nation.
Sharing a Podcast:
Not my own show this time…but, Snap Judgment.
My friend, Pastor Marc Schelske, turned me on to Snap Judgment this week and I’m addicted. The stories grab me like a book I can’t put down, only I can hear these tales while driving. My commute hasn’t been as bad this week. In fact, I almost welcomed a little traffic. 
(Also, Marc is full of wisdom other than podcast recommendations. Subscribe to his blog and check him out.)

    Well said, Andee. I had a hard time reading this week that a friend's church had opened their invitation to the Navy Seal guy who came out as a Christian. Let him talk about his book and everything.
    So I went to Matthew where I've been reading lately and noticed in Chapter 9 I think that after Jesus delivered the Sermon on the Mount He took a boat, healed a bunch of people, called Matthew and then sat down and ate dinner with prostitutes and tax collectors. Yep. That's who He was with.
    How are people ever going to know the love of Christ if we don't extend an invitation and accept them? (I'm preaching to myself here…) thanks for this.
