  • Learning to enjoy the ride

     

    When I first met my husband he drove a brand-new 1973 Mercury Comet GT, white with orange pinstripes along the sides and orange vinyl interior -- and a manual transmission.

    As Barry attempted to teach me how to drive it, I proved myself to be a willing student, but not an adept one.

  • When God loses his mind

    Every so often I’ll say to God, “With all due respect and with the full realization that you can fry me on the spot, which I admittedly deserve -- you have obviously lost your mind. Sir.”
    Here’s a perfect example: After many, many months of inviting a friend to my church, one day several years ago this friend finally decided to actually come.
    I should’ve been happy about that, but that particular week was right in the middle of a capital campaign, which meant the pastor would be talking about giving money.

  • Yield Not to Temptation

    One of my favorite hymns is Yield not to Temptation. It contains words and tune by Horatio R. Palmer. The first line, of this well-known church song, states, “Yield not to temptation, for yielding is sin; each victory will help you some other to win; fight manfully onward, dark passions subdue; look ever to Jesus, He’ll carry you through.”  
    This hymn shouts the message that Christians need to strive for victory over the temptation to commit sin. It is the victories, not defeats in life, that give us testimonies.

  • A chronic case of CRS

    Although I don’t think it’s terminal, it is chronic: I have a chronic case of CRS -- Can’t Remember Stuff.
    That’s the diagnosis one of my co-workers gave me the other day. He may or may not have been joking.
    I tell people all the time to please, please, please remind me of stuff. It’s the CRS, folks. I just can’t remember.
    At least I’m not alone. The ancient Israelites had it too. They were always forgetting stuff, mostly the stuff God had done for them, even rescuing them from years of slavery in Egypt.

  • Chasing the monsters away

    My grandfather sold insurance by day and in his spare time he was an artist.
    He mostly painted clowns -- scary clowns.
    A few of his paintings hung in our house, which meant as a kid I had major heebie jeebies nearly all the time, especially at night.
    When you’re a kid getting up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom and you know scary clowns are staring at you from the walls in the hallway, well, you grow up neurotic and afraid.
