Nuggets 86:  Father, Thank You 
 Father in Heaven, Thank you...
 
That the God of the universe is good, not evil.  That you never change.
That you do not treat us as our sins deserve. 
That you have removed our sins as far as the east is from the west.
That Jesus does not call us servants but friends. 
That he loved us more than he loved himself.
That you take no pleasure in the death of the wicked but long for them to repent.
That we are valuable...

 ​  Nuggets 17:  Seven Words from the Cross
 
 
Searing agony and public shame.  Jesus refused the anesthetic of wine and myrrh to keep his mind clear.  Never did Jesus teach more powerfully than from the cross.
 
"Father forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing."  In a world self-destructing from hatred, Jesus modeled healing love.

  Nuggets 92:  Spitting on Goodness
