  • How to be God’s favorite

     When my kids were little they used to ask me, “Who do you like best?”
    There’s really no way to answer that. How can you say, “Some days you and some days your sister”?
    Or: “Neither of you when you’re fighting with each other over hair scrunchies.”
    Even the standard “I like both of you equally” doesn’t satisfy a child’s question about who’s Mom’s favorite.

  • Lest I forget: Nothing is impossible with God

    I have been blessed with a terrible memory.
    It’s a blessing because I don’t remember things that haunt other people with better memories. I can’t remember most of the fights I’ve had with my husband or kids or hurtful things people have said or done.
    However, I also can’t remember people’s names or my passwords and PINs or what I went into the kitchen to do or came to the store to buy.

  • Thank You Lord


    Gracious, holy God,
    As the Puritans wrote in “The Valley of Vision,” “Thou hast made me out of nothing, hast recalled me from a far country, translated me from ignorance to knowledge, from darkness to light, death to life, misery to peace, folly to wisdom, error to truth and sin to victory.”
    You have been good to me!
    Thank you, Lord, for one more year of living in your mercy and grace, for withholding the wrath I deserve and instead, heaping upon me blessings that bring me to my knees in humble gratitude.

  • Church: Why bother? The teen edition

    A few weeks ago my youngest daughter came home for a quick visit on her way to a wedding and a football game.
    At 27, she has long outgrown her terrible teen years, although she still has a bit of an edge. That’s just Laura.
    When she was 14 or 15 she was into a grunge stage, very Kurt Cobain-Pearl Jam-Stone Temple Pilots. She’d wear pants big enough to fit two sumo wrestlers and heavy, bump-toe combat boots — to church. Hey, I was just glad she came to church back then and I wasn’t about to quibble over what she wore.
