  • How not to “flunk” sainthood

    On my last birthday I turned 61.
    I thought by this age I’d get the hang of the whole sainthood thing, at least the Protestant definition of a saint as simply being a follower of Jesus, although that somehow doesn’t seem to be enough. Shouldn’t there be more to it than that? Hitting a benchmark of obedience? Praying without ceasing? Saying no to temptation eight out of 10 times, or at least two out of 10?
    If so, then I’m a poor excuse for a “saint.”

  • Shining a light on family secretsShining a light on family secrets

    When my oldest daughter was 4 or 5 we were riding with my mom and Alison blurted out, “Grandma, want to know a family secret?”
    I sat in the passenger seat frozen, not sure what my daughter was about to say.
    “It’s like Dad wearing Mom’s underwear,” Alison said.
    It was one of those moments when you feel obligated to explain, but you sure as heck don’t want to because no matter what you say your mom will still think you’re an imbecile -- or worse.

  • BLACKBERRY PICKIN’


    When I was a young boy I would go with my Dad and my Grandpa to pick blackberries. We would always take several empty “Partridge Lard” cans to put the berries in as we picked them. While we were gone “berry pickin,” Mom and Grandma would be washing and cleaning jars and rings and other items in preparation to make delicious blackberry jam and jelly on that  “Warm Morning”, wood burning, cookstove in Grandma’s kitchen.

  • State of my marriage address

    Note: On May 3, my husband and I will be married 41 years. I’ve adapted this column from 2009.
    While out for our semi-regular Sunday drive, as I flipped through the radio stations I asked my husband what kind of music he liked.
    That’s the kind of questions you ask on a first date, not after 41 years of marriage!
    I’m not sure what that says about the state of our marriage. You don’t even know what kind of music your husband likes?
