We have been with our grandsons most of the last two weeks and we had to be so careful when the TV was on because we didn’t want them to see, or hear, the news from France, Baton Rouge, or Dallas. We wanted to shield them from the bad things in the world and only give them what is good.

Yet it was our weaknesses he carried; it was our sorrows that weighed him down. – Isaiah 53:4
Jesus, when they cracked the whip and the metal shards pulled the skin off your back did you feel the pain of my hand as it spanked my child in anger.
He was beaten so we could be whole. He was whipped so we could be healed. – Isaiah 53:5
Jesus, when the soldiers yelled and taunted you, did hear the sharp sting of my words as I talked down to my continue reading here
