  • Reunion stories are the best

    I love a good reunion story.
    A few years ago The New York Times ran a story about then-New York Giants head coach Jim Fassel and a young man named John Mathieson.
    Thirty-four years prior to Fassel and his wife Kitty meeting Mathieson they had been 19 and unmarried — and the parents of a baby boy whose birth and adoption they kept secret from all but their immediate families.
    And for 34 years, every April 5 the Fassels privately wished their baby boy a Happy Birthday, adding, “Wherever you are, we hope you’re OK.”

  • No such thing as flunking

    This week I turned 57.
    I thought by this age I’d get the hang of the whole sainthood thing. The Protestant definition of a saint is simply a follower of Jesus.
    However, that doesn’t seem enough. There should be more to it than that. For instance, by now I should have at least the beginning buds of a halo or be able to say no to temptation eight out of 10 times — or two out of 10!
    But the truth is, I still struggle.

  • Rest is just what Jesus ordered

    In the past few years, my husband and I have made it a tradition to eat Christmas dinner at a nearby inn that serves a humungous buffet.
    Without fail, every time we go I bemoan the fact that my stomach can’t accommodate large quantities of food.
    I’ve seen people eat stacks of pancakes the size of Rhode Island and whole sides of beef and think that maybe I can do that too, but I can’t.

  • Behold, the lion

    Early one Saturday morning I was on the treadmill at the gym watching “The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe” on the TV in front of me.
    TLWW is the first of C.S. Lewis’ Chronicles of Narnia allegorical series about a wonderland that’s taken hostage by an evil witch.
    In the part of the movie that caught my attention, the boy Edmund finds himself in Narnia, in the snow, shivering in his p.j.s, robe and slippers.

  • Give thanks with a greatful heart

    “Thou great I AM,” the Puritans wrote in “The Valley of Vision,” “I acknowledge and confess that all things come of Thee — life, breath, happiness, advancement, sight, touch, hearing, goodness, truth, beauty — all that makes existence amiable.”
    Thou truly are a great and gracious God who has been truly good to me.
    Thank you, Lord, for the pleasures of life, for work and sleep, for irritants that refine my rough edges, for hard times that make me tough and good times that make me smile.
