  • Scarred for life

    All this past week I’ve been talking to people with scars for a series of stories that I wrote for the newspaper where I work.
    I got the idea from a photographer I heard on the radio, talking about a series of photos he had done of people’s scars.
    He said that every scar tells a story.
    When I was 9, I bent down to say “hi” to Sam Lang’s Basset hound and it jumped up and bit my face, tearing a hole from the right edge of my lip to my chin.

  • We are all so loved

    Oh, to be loved as Dennis Williams is loved!
    A week or so ago on a Sunday afternoon, two women I don’t know knocked on my door.
    They said they knew me, or at least knew me through my writing and somehow thought I could help them find their friend Dennis.
    They knew enough about me to deduce that I owned my own home and searched the county property appraiser’s website to find my address so they could come and see me in person because they were that desperate to find their friend who was missing.

  • Playing soul catch-up

    In a story told by Rabbi Kushner, a group of tourists on an African safari hired several native porters to carry their supplies for them. After three days the porters announced they needed to stop and rest for a day.
    They didn’t appear to be tired, so the tourists asked why the need to stop. The porters said, “We are not tired, but we have walked too far too fast and now we must wait for our souls to catch up to us.”
    I totally get that. I run and run and work and life zips by and my soul gets left behind in the dust.

  • Project Linus brings a sense of security and warmth to hospitalized children

    With every stitch, Mary Ann Upton remembers. Five years ago, she watched her newborn grandson fight for his life. He was born with a heart defect that lead to open heart surgery when he was only three days old. In the midst of all the worry and pain, the local chapter of Project Linus brought the baby a blanket.
    “It’s put up now,” said the grandmother of five. “One day, maybe he’ll take it out and tell the story to his children. It really meant a lot. Hospitals can be so cold and impersonal. What Project Linus did was so good.”

  • Shut my mouth - please

    If I were God, I would’ve made people with delay devices on their mouths or a filter of some kind.
    For example, when your brain wants to say, “Poodles aren’t real dogs,” before it comes out of your mouth the delay device would kick in and send you a message: “Really? Is that really what you want to say in front of this group of people who may or may not include poodle owners?”

  • Christians are not limited to just three free sins

    It’s not every day that I get “three free sins” in the mail, but today I did.
    Unfortunately, I used them up even before I got the envelope opened.
    I’m talking about Bible teacher, author and Christian radio personality Steve Brown’s new book, “Three Free Sins,” subtitled, “God’s Not Mad at You.”
    The title comes from Steve’s former call-in radio program where he gave callers three free sins — six if they called on a cell phone.
