Jehovah's Witnesses.

Every few weeks,
there are Jehovah's Witnesses 
who set up a table
in the hall at UVU.

Those are my favorite days.

There's always a white board set up
that asks you a good question,
Do we need God?

And the older gentleman
who always wears a bow tie
sits on the couch behind the table,
swiping away on his i-device,
waiting for someone to approach him.

I love his patience,
and the devotion he shows
to be there all day.

It's a rare treat for me,
and a greater treat for him, I'm sure,
when someone actually stops to talk to him.

I smiled at him today.
Maybe some time I'll say hi.

Worth Saying.

I just read a nice blog post and thought,
"I want to say something worth saying."

So I thought about what that might be.

This is what I have:

Jesus is nice.
He can be your best friend,
and you can do things with Him all the time.
Those can be your best times.

And you can still be a normal person.
I hope I am.

It doesn't matter how much technology we create,
how intricate life becomes;
we'll never outgrow Him.
