Sacred Pandemonium

It finally happened. After 37 Christmases with 3 children, their loves and our 7 grandkids I guess it was inevitable. In National Lampoon worthy fashion, this year the Christmas tree fell over. Now, to be accurate, we have two trees. The formal, pretty one we call “Mom’s tree” and the other is the “family tree”. […]

A Blanket Proposal

It wasn’t his best day. Not even close. After a very long obedience in the right direction, he let down his guard, had a bit too much to drink and wound up in a highly compromising situation. Had he been able to stay awake, he would have been embarrassed and humiliated. But he was in […]

The Absurdification of Culture

It was a flash of mobile irony. Driving home after dropping off my teacher-wife at school, I was listening to National Public Radio. I enjoy the unique way they narrate the news. The story was about a dog grooming salon in Taiwan where the proprietor/groomer, Xiao Mo, is experimenting with canine quaffs created in distinct geometric shapes. Using skills […]

Do I Really Have A Voice?

Heated debates are popping up in both traditional and social media forcing people to opposite sides in rancorous arguments about civil liberties, legal rights and traditional values. Seems just about everyone is wading into […]

This Father’s Heart

It burst out of him spontaneously. He literally couldn’t help himself. When our oldest grandson, Gabe, was little and something really good happened to him, he would look up with an ecstatic smile and squeal, “Happy birthday to me!” It made no difference that it wasn’t even close to his birthday, he could think of no better […]

A Tutor Called Loss

I am a slow learner. Even in life, I seem to need the remedial class. Far too often I learn critical lessons too late to apply them. Regrets seem to be my way of processing the ‘woulda, shoulda, coulda’ moments of my life. I am grateful that God sends people into my life to shape my emotional and […]

The Full Extent of His Love

Endings say a lot about what went before. I saw this personally and painfully as I conducted the memorial service of my 36-year-old nephew this week. A brave fire-fighter, a loving husband, a dedicated father, a real friend. David died as he had lived, spending his life-currency on others. The real stuff—the core of what […]
