Good Friday ...

Good Friday is the mirror held up by Jesus so that we can see ourselves in all our stark reality, and then it turns us to that cross and to his eyes and we hear these words, "Father forgive them for they know not what they do." 

That's us! 

So we know beyond a shadow of a doubt that if we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves.

 We see in Him a love so amazing so divine that it loves us even when we turn away from it, or spurn it, or crucify it. 

There is no faith without understanding that through Him we see into the heart of God and find it filled with mercy for the sinner whoever he or she may be.

Chinooks in Amarillo

I caught a couple of Chinooks out at the airport today - and just had to take a few photos. I've seen them here often (from Ft Hood I'm thinking) but they are always impressive none-the-less.

Spring is finally here!

I captured this Robin this morning on my balcony. Although I see them everywhere, they usually are too shy to visit my feeder. I guess he wanted to see what the sparrows and cowbirds were fighting over.
