I used to have some small collections of pogo strips in paperback, falling apart that I had picked up in a secondhand store. Walt Kelly strip was topical a commentary and satire of the times, with a rich collection of characters, using a number of ahead of his times techniques in his portrayal.
When we feel like our whole world is falling apart, it is easy to react without thinking through the consequences of our actions and choices. It’s easy to let our fears, hurt feelings, and anger get the best of us. But those are the moments Christ calls us to — those are the moments He most likes the use, the moments when we are weak, weary and clinging to the Cross. For that is when His power is made perfect…in those moments when we are at our weakest.
