A man died today. He was an ordinary man, lived most of his life in a small town, teaching PE at an agricultural university. But he had extraordinary influence and impact on the world. Beve and I are here because of him--marr...

It's November. The days are darker, the nights are longer, and perhaps that's why I'm a little bit more introspective. Or maybe it's not introspective. Maybe it's just who I am burbling to the surface. It's me staring into th...

Tonight is a bullet point kind of night. These are the things I've been thinking about: I love autumn, but don't like Halloween. And I'm not saying I don't like it because I'm a Christian. I just don't like the whole mess of...

Those of you with weak stomachs are going to want to forego this post. In fact, I wish I could forego my life for a while right now. I'm telling you, there's a big YUCK factor in what I'm about to share, but an even bigger yu...

There's a Springer Spaniel sitting on my lap this morning. She's been sitting on my lap for most of the last two days. We went up to our little lodge over the weekend, where she ran and played 'fetch the ball,' and 'fling you...
