Natural disasters.  Shootings.  Division. It seems as if these are the frequent headliners lately. I don’t know about you, but hearing of such tragedies is pretty disheartening and causes us to respond in different ways. Some folks remain in a state of fear and pity: “Oh how […]

Same Circumstances, Different Response

Same Circumstances, Different Response

Over the past decade, we’ve had a similar set of circumstances. When either my son or younger daughter can’t keep down food because of a cold or stomach bug, we rush them to the emergency room. There, they start receiving fluids with the goal of rehydrating them immediately. […]

Daddy’s Little Girl

Daddy’s Little Girl

I am not a parent but I am pretty sure I wouldn’t be a very good one. And that has nothing to do with the fact that I gave my nephews extra dessert or that they stayed up until 2 a.m. when they were at my house. […]

Freedom

Freedom
