I was all set to write a post about a very political topic when I got distracted. A rather common thing for me, the shiny objects get me every time. Tonight it was for the better.
I had to find a picture of my wife for a special project. I thought, “Hey, one of those pictures from Haiti has a great smile.” Out came the Haiti file folder, and this one caught my attention:
This caused me to rethink the other post. It will be done, just not today.
Today I want to think about those beautiful people I met on this trip. Not just the people of Haiti, but my fellow missionaries and the support staff.
I looked at a lot of those pictures tonight, and I am made glad by the beauty they bring to this earth.
Thank you, God, for an amazing trip just about two years ago. It was a blessing.
Have you made a missions trip? If you had the glow I have right now you’d sign up in a heart beat. Why not tromp on over to www.healinghaiti.org and see if you can join them for a life changing experience.

I have a favor to ask of my readers: would you kindly share this blog with your friends, family, and colleagues? We hit a million views in 2014, and while the readership continues a nice growth trend, it could be a lot better. Just hit the Facebook like button, share it on your timeline, tweet the blog with a link, and tell that person at the next desk that there’s this lunatic who writes about all sorts of stuff that they might like.
I appreciate your help. When we hit 2,000,000 readers I will give away something cool to a drawing from the subscribers (that’s the box on the right toward the top) who have helped promote this mess. No used sheets, probably not honey, more likely gift cards. Be a part of it. I’ll update from time to time where we’re at in the count. Thanks.
