Those of you who follow my blog or Facebook know that Nanci and I love dogs. She and I like to talk about our resurrection (post-bucket) lists, consisting of all the things we look forward to doing after we die, and in particular, after the resurrection. Nanci’s post-bucket list includes her dream to spend a lot of time with dogs.

Our Golden Retriever Maggie got a kick out of this video, and so did we. Makes you smile, and I believe it makes God smile. It’s a little tribute to human ingenuity, as God’s image-bearers, and to canine adorability, both reflecting the creativity and beauty of God.

God gives us greater and lesser reasons for laughter, but the lesser ones are a gift from Him also. Here is a video that works in any language—and that shares the delight in the universal language of laughter. Nanci and I loved it.

In superheroes we see a secondary and dim reflection of Jesus, who is the Primary, the Light of the world.

(I can’t find who to credit for this cartoon with Jesus, the Hulk, Spider Man and Captain America, but I like the point it makes.)

There are athletes who are Christ-followers on many professional sports teams. The National Football League has a significant number. I’ve had the opportunity to meet some of them, including Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, left tackle Russell Okung, free safety Chris Maragos and long-snapper Clint Gresham. I recently had the opportunity to talk and pray with these guys and others the night before a game. Here’s Chris Maragos with my grandsons Jake and Ty.
