  • Glory to God — and me too?

    When I was a kid we used to listen to a record album of silly songs.
    One song went: “Glory, glory, hallelujah. Teacher hit me with a ruler. She bopped me on the bean with a rotten tangerine….”
    I can’t remember the rest. But even all these years later, whenever I hear the word “glory” that stupid song pops into my head. (And now it will pop into yours.)

  • A stroke of faith

    Forty-one years ago, Steve Starnes played football alongside Al Cowlings and O.J. Simpson as the Buffalo Bills fifth-round draft pick out of the University of Tampa.
    He also played for the Green Bay Packers and the (former) Boston Patriots.
    He was big and burly. Then he injured his neck and his professional football career, the dream of many little boys and grown men, was cut short. Five years ago a stroke nearly took his life.

  • Disappointment with God

    A few months ago, I got a letter from someone I’ll call “Emily.”
    She wrote to ask for my encouragement, which is always humbling and I take these requests seriously.
    Emily said she and her husband are both Christians, but right now neither is close to God. She said her husband is depressed and that makes her anxious and afraid, unsure of when and if it will end, and what will happen because of it.

  • The great cover up of 2011

    In the continuing saga of my ongoing battle over household décor with my husband, this time it’s the back sliding glass door.
    But before I get to that, let me back up to say that in the first 30 or so years of our marriage my husband rarely expressed an opinion about how to decorate the house except for one hard and fast rule: I could choose any color to paint the walls as long as it was antique or Navaho white.
    Other than that I had free reign — and I love to reign.

  • She’s Gone fishin’

    Last week while on my stay-at-home vacation, I went fishing.
    For billions of people around the world, that news would be a big fat no big deal because it’s done all the time so ho hum, tell me something I don’t know.
    However, for me, going fishing was a big fat very big deal because it was my first time ever.
    At 56, I had never fished before, and for months now I have been wanting to, almost to the point of it being an obsession. I don’t know why I’ve been wanting to fish so badly, only that I have.
