Just 'Hold On'! more
When my son was a boy, he had an elaborate race car set from his grandparents. The cars raced each other, went around curves, and did loops. There were dump trucks that could be loaded and unloaded with gravel, plus all kinds of lights, sounds, bells and whistles. He loved it! more

I recently had that annual September birthday that just keeps coming around. I’m told by my friends that is a good thing, and I know it is. I’m thankful God has allowed me to live this long because that means He isn’t finished with me yet. more
It was one of those scenes in the news that's hard to forget. It was a Korean ferry rolling into the sea with all the passengers disappearing with it beneath the waves. It was heartbreaking to see loved ones on the dock grieving inconsolably over children who would never come home again. What was outrageous was that the captain was one of the first to abandon ship. They charged him with negligence of duty and abandoning people in need. Sadly, there are a lot of captains that can be charged with crimes like that. more
In the days we live in, we are surrounded by angry people who are one provocation away from an explosion. It’s apparent at times, by how they're enraged about seemingly small things. You know they already had to have a very full glass for it to take just a single drop to make them spill all over everybody. Our easily-triggered and quickly-provoked anger should scare us. Because rage crushes reason and makes us blind to the expensive consequences of our eruption. more
I promise, I do not do goofy things just so I have column material. I don’t know what makes me so goofy at times … but I just am. Two great examples happened this week. more

I invented a little game years ago to play with our two young grandsons. I called it Bible Charades. We tried it once, and then they wanted to play it more. It's pretty simple. Just write a brief description of several Bible stories on cards, and then the boys would take turns drawing a card and acting out the story with either their Daddy or me as their teammate. Whoever isn't playing is supposed to be guessing. My favorite was when our younger grandson — who was three years old — was David and his tall Daddy was Goliath. The little guy pretended that this dishtowel was his slingshot, and he spun it around his head — followed by Daddy holding his forehead and crashing dramatically to the living room floor. No talking is allowed. You can only act it out. One problem: our five-year-old grandson knew a lot more Bible stories than his three-year-old brother, which made the game challenging and sometimes kind of frustrating for the little guy. The story that we hoped that he'd guess by our actions might be a story he didn't even know! more
Did you give a lot of thought and prayers for what you named your children? I know by reading the names of new babies, these days, it sounds like mom and dad just pull a random word out of a hat and that makes a good name. Of course I won’t share any examples — but you get the point. Well, let me take that back. Let me look around my home office and see if I can come up with some good examples. Let’s name our baby girl, “Shoe Box.” (which my monitor sits on) And the boy needs to be called “Lamp Stand.” I’m keeping my fingers crossed that I don't receive hate mail! But you get my point. more

I’m at one of my favorite spots to write. I got a nice walk in at Maplewood Cemetery and this time, I remembered to put a lawn chair in the back of my car so I could sit outside and enjoy it while cooling off. more
With children heading back to school, I'm in flashback mode. To when it was our cherubs leaving for school each morning. more
