Everything’s Fine. Really.

Not? Perhaps you’re in the middle of a quandary. An impasse. A calamity. If so, you may think, “Easy for you, Mr. Big Pants!” Understandable. First of all, I wear a 34 waist. Secondly, I have problems, too. I don’t share a lot of them because, like you, I can say...

Out Of Gas

It’d been a long couple of days. Lois had hip replacement surgery with stellar results. Doctors exclaimed, “Couldn’t have gone better!” The most important thing. Sure there were challenges. Long hours in the lobby. A lengthy overnight stay, complete with pokes,...

Silent Percussionist

There’s a percussionist at our church. Chimes, shakers, cymbals, and congas all designed to accent the what the drummer is doing. He puts his whole being into it. He has a flare for the dramatic. There may be half the song when he doesn’t play at all, but the whole...

Someone recently called me vain. My response? “I’m not vain, I’m very humble. In fact, I’m probably the most humble person you know. Nobody’s more humble than me. I’m very proud of my humility.” Another told me I was “tight” with money. I know there’s some truth...

I’m Workin’ On It.

Lord, I’m wondering why my situation’s still unresolved. I’ve prayed. I’ve behaved. I’ve read the Bible. I know you’re faithful. So whats the hold up? “I’m workin’ on it.” Father, I see more and more hatred, confusion, and depression in the news and in the country....

Pity the Fool
