For years, Sarah had low-back pain that continued to worsen. Her doctor sent her for physical therapy, and she was given 25 stretches to do every day. The pain lessened but not completely. So the doctor ordered x-rays and sent her to another therapist, who instructed her to discontinue the other therapists stretches and do only one stretch a day as needed. Surprisingly, the one simple stretch worked the best.
Sometimes the simplest truths are the best. When asked to summarize in one sentence his whole lifes work in theology, Karl Barth responded: Jesus loves me! Some say he added, This I know, for the Bible tells me so.
Gods love for us is evident. He gave His Son to rescue us from ourselves. Christ died on the cross, taking our burden of sin. Then He rose again, giving us new life in Him. Amazing love! As John tells us: Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God! (1 John 3:1).
Jesus love for us isnt a Band-Aid or a cure-all for all of lifes problems, of course. But it is the one truth we can always depend on to give purpose to life and peace with God.
Although he’s Navy, my son got his Masters at the Air Force Institute at WPAFB. We visited a couple of times. One of those times we toured the museum. That is simply one of the great museums I ever visited,

Fortunately I live a little over an hour from this and visit frequently. It is so much cooler than the Smithsonian in Washington because you can get right up next to all the aircraft.
America demands Justice for the Fallen of Benghazi!
The museum has the plane which dropped the bomb on Nagasaki (Bockscar or Bock’s Car).
