I got to visit with my 98-year-old great grandma today. 
“Well give them my regards,” and “Is that so!” she said.
It made me wonder what things I will say that will make my great-grandchildren smile and ponder the past.
“In himself [man] is destitute and dead. Help must come from the outside, and it has come and comes daily and anew in the Word of Jesus Christ, bringing 
redemptionrighteousnessinnocence, and blessedness.”
-Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Life Together

oh how I need to be reminded of this.
