“The Inn Keeper” by John Piper

Kelly saw this tonight and shared it with me.  As a father, I was moved to tears.  What a wonderful & powerful poem.   It is such a fresh perspective on the characters we’ve all heard of but the stories that have been left untold.  It truly is a hidden gem and a new classic for our Christmas season.

There is nothing quite like the feeling of wind-blowing-through-your-hair-freedom that comes from a good bike ride.  It’s exciting to do it and even more exciting to see you son or daughter do it for the first time.
