This blog is mostly about images. A photo captures a moment in time and lets us slow down long enough to see the rich texture of the life all around us. It's mostly for my own amusement, but if you stumbled here somehow, please enjoy.

Little Help

This Boeing 737-700 is a technologically advanced airplane, capable of carrying 140 passengers over 3500 miles at speeds approaching 500 mph.  Yet it relies on a couple of guys in a tug to push it back from the gate to a position where it can taxi by itself.  (Sure, it could deploy its thrust reversers at the gate but probably not without blowing the glass out of the terminal windows!)

The Bible has many references to help us understand how much we need each other; even the "strongest" among us.  One of my favorites is from Ecclesiastes 4:9-12:
"Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour. For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up. Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm alone? And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken"
It's OK to ask for help--we need each other!
