(lent) 22


the atomic number for Titanium, which happens to be what Lieutenant Dan's 'new leg' was made out of.
Forrest: You got new legs. New legs!
Lt. Dan: Yeah, I got new legs. Lt. Dan: Custom-made titanium alloy. It's what they use on the space shuttle...

the maximum number of regions in which a plane can be divided by 5 circles.

number of players on the pitch for a soccer game (11 on each side)

number of players on the field for a football game (11 on each side)

the number of bones in that make up the human head. (8 cranium, 14 face)

the nick name of a .22 caliber rifle.

Catch-22, a book by Joseph Heller.

number of stars on the Paramount Pictures logo.

length, in minutes, of a typical American situation comedy (minus the commercials).

the age in which our mental ability peaks.

number of letters in the Hebrew alphabet.

number of chapters in the Revelation of John, the last book of the New Testament.

while on the cross, one of the seven says spoken from the mouth of Jesus was from Psalm chapter 22.

so many random statistics. so many things to consider... to remember.
how will we be remembered? as a person who added to the betterment of the world?
or as a statistic?

we all go through struggles in this life. we've all felt forsaken... forgotten.
but no matter how many times we forget our place in this world; no matter how many times we neglect God; no matter how many times we go our own way rather than the way of Jesus, He still remembers us.

on the cross he remembers us.
on the cross he unites us.

when we claim repentance and live righteousness, not only then are we remembered - but our sins are forgotten.

Christ on the cross, abandoned. alone. remembering us. before we were a mere gleam...
