  • Power of a soggy stamp

    Twenty years ago this year we had a devastating storm blow through our area that we call the No-Name Storm.
    I hadn’t thought about it in a while, but the other day a woman came into the newspaper office and mentioned it. She still lives in one of the hardest hit areas.
    When she left, I started thinking about that storm and its aftermath. For many people around here it was our area’s Hurricane Sandy or a mini Hurricane Katrina, blowing in and surprising everyone, wreaking havoc.

  • Cursed, blessed law

    When my youngest daughter first moved away from home and I realized I could not control her every action (not that I ever could, but I deluded myself into thinking I could when she lived with me), I had a brilliant idea.
    She was home for a visit and when I brought her to the airport I said, “Let me give you a list of everything I think you should and shouldn’t do and then you can just do everything on the list and we’ll both live happily ever after, especially me.”

  • I am 24601 — and so are you

    In case you haven’t seen Les Misérables — go see it.
    In case you don’t fully understand the concept of the power of grace and mercy to change a human heart — go see it.
    In case you’re caught up in the drive to make others pay for their wrongs and can’t see your own — go see it.
    I heard it said once that all of life illustrates Bible doctrine, and this movie does just that.

  • Big, crazy, toddler-sized faith

    When my youngest brother was little he loved to be tossed into the swimming pool.
    We’d pick him up and throw him underhand, like lobbing a softball, into the deep end and watch him sink and then pop his head up from the surface, look for the nearest side of the pool and swim toward it.

  • Embrace your not-perfectness for a ‘happily ever after’

    One day at the library, a book fell off a shelf and hit a boy named Milo Crinkley on the head.
    The title, “Be a Perfect Person in Just Three Days,” was just what he needed.
    Wanting more than anything to be perfect, Milo checked the book out and set out to do everything the author, Dr. K. Pinkerson Silverfish, prescribed.
    So begins the 1982 children’s book “Be a Perfect Person in Just Three Days” by Stephen Manes.
