Absence makes the heart grow fonder, they say, but when Amber's away, my heart grows three-quarters crazy. And though Rich Mullins said "the other side of the world is not so far away," when she's there, I feel every mile of it.

She's on a plane to Israel, and I'm holding down the fort. Today, I wrote a "Dear Amber," #MarriageLetter  about the whole shebang. Read along?

Eugene Peterson had a fictional drinking problem. Pastor and professor A.J. Swoboda had a real one. Today, Swoboda steps into the Recovery Room and shares vulnerably about how spiritual shepherds can develop very real addiction.

Here's what it looks like when +A.J. Swoboda steps into the Recovery Room. 

"Generally, people will use Christianity either to: 1) put on make-up to help us make-believe nothing is wrong in our lives, or, 2) remove our make-up so that we might enter the presence of the Almighty as we are. Christianity is not a way to Photoshop the pain out of our life."

Today, +Amber Haines writes her Marriage Letter. What do I call holy? Read her piece for more.
Dear Seth,. When we first met, you were like one melted and poured into a model of holiness, and everybody called you so. You were the good boy, and I hope our four sons follow suit. You commanded rooms, a leader, always doing what was right. You sang your hallelujahs and expected rewards for ...

Creative as he was, God breathed life into the dormant dust of nature–this nature which itself rests–and created man. Yes, we are made from material that needs a fallow season.

Make no mistake, I would love to participate in the success of larger-than-life novels, definitive poems, and viral blog posts. These days, though, my writing goals have begun a sort of slow shift.

I'm Doxology grateful this weekend. Drop on in to see why, and check out a few good links while you're at it.

The Doxology and a Few Good Links. 28 Feb 2015 / 0 Comments in Links, The Saturdaily. You know the Doxology, right? It's a hymn of praise sung by Christians, and it's been at the top of the church charts (both contemporary and traditional) for who-knows-how-long. The lyrics are simple.

"'Daddy?' He paused. 'Are they throwing a party for sin?'

I stood on the side of Dickson and held the tenderness of his question. Sometimes, I think having childlike faith means asking the most uncomfortable questions."

My sons ask the most insightful questions. Stop in today to read more.

Marital healing isn’t all pie-in-the-sky mysticism and supernatural transcendence of tricky predicaments. It’s not all long-suffering perseverance and pulling yourselves up by the collective bootstraps, either.

Tiny coyotes, tiny hazelnuts, all manner of tiny things. It's the way we roll.

I used to hate going to the Dentist. (Perhaps loathe is a better descriptor). After months and months of politely requesting that I visit Dr. Kifer, my wife finally scheduled an appointment for me (behind my back, no less). Honoring her wishes, I followed through with the appointment and was pleasantly surprised. The hygienists at Dr. Kifer's place are inviting, friendly, and have great personalities to-boot! They are conscience of my time, prompt, and very efficient. Dr. Kifer displays the highest level of professionalism and is a joy to speak with. After visiting Dr. Kifer's office, I can tell you that I'll be back for regular follow up exams. If you're looking for a dentist in Northwest Arkansas, this is the place.
