Honesty

E-Har-Har-Harmony

Wednesday, April 27th, 2011

Sometimes we just have to laugh. As Frederick Buechner wrote, “Laughing is better than crying and maybe not even all that different…(because) no matter what the immediate occasion is of either your laughter or your tears, the object of both ends up being yourself and your own life.” Several months ago while driving on Loop […]

Pecking At Pebbles

Saturday, February 5th, 2011

Have you ever tried to make something be what it can never be? Annie and Emma are in the back seat at Sonic Drive-In, enjoying an after school snack while we sit with engine running. It’s unseasonably cold this week. So cold that there is no one dining at the outdoor tables, the same tables […]

Honest Prayer

Saturday, September 13th, 2008

It was the most honest prayer request I’ve ever heard voiced in a church service. Marcelle and Oscar were a wonderful elderly couple in my church back in Chandler, Arizona. Their story was storybook.
