  • This one is for the wounded

    Earlier today I got a jump on spring cleaning and tackled my “column fodder” pile of scribbles and note fragments.
    Sometimes people ask how I think of stuff to write each week. I’d like to say, “The Spirit moves me,” and sometimes that’s hopefully true. Most of the time, however, I read or hear something that sparks a thought. Some result in a full-blown column and some merely snippets.
    Today is a snippets day.

  • Love is an ability we must share with others

    In the book of I John 4:7 is says; “…let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God.”
    Love is something that we all have the ability to do and need to share with others.
    I love my wife, my children, my grandchildren. But I also love others who aren’t blood related to me.
    As we look around town, or in a store, or a restaurant there are many who need a smiling face to reinforce that not everyone is evil in this world.

  • Happy are the pure in heart

    I used to believe the saying that “Time heals all wounds.”  
    This has just not been true for me. As a child who grew up with two alcoholic parents, I had some hurts and wounds that were not repairing themselves with passing time.  
    In fact, the longer I tried to ignore my pain, the more damage I did to myself. I searched for ways to numb the pain and ignore the damage that had been done.   

  • Of toenails and helicopters

    Not to get all TMI (“too much information”) on you, but I have this black spot on my toenail.
    When I first noticed it, my over-active, ultra-melodramatic imagination decided it was melanoma and I only had three weeks to live.
    It turned out to be blood underneath the nail from the time I dropped something on it. The doctor diagnosed it as an “owie” and said it would take a long time for it to go away, that the spot would grow out as the nail grows.

  • My life according to Facebook

    I’m not big on reflecting upon my life, past, present or future, and now thanks to Facebook I don’t have to — Facebook has done it for me.
    Today I logged onto my page and it said to click here to see my “20 biggest moments” of 2013, culled from my status updates throughout the year. (I’m curious to know how they choose which ones are “big moments.” Where mine are concerned, I’m guessing it may be my use of exclamation points.)

  • Welcome to the "Grand Buffet"

    That’s one honking spread they put on.
