Thanks Again

In a recent post I encouraged you to write a thank you. The real kind.... the kind you write out and mail. Who did you send your note to? I thought of several people I could thank, like teachers that influenced me more than they know. Or past employers. Dale L....

Redefining a Great Marriage

I’ve been married now for over 33 years. (Yes, I got married when I was twelve.) And I’ve learned a little bit about what makes a marriage great in that time. But it’s probably not what you think. It’s taken me a lot of years and a lot of mistakes along the way to...

Spring Back?

For some, 2017 began in the midst of great sadness, the loss of a loved one, a sickness, a seemingly senseless trial and a great wondering. Crisis can bring deep spiritual questioning to the strongest of faiths. It digs into the reservoir of our souls and exposes the...

Someday

Someday I'll write that book. I'll travel when I have more money. Next year I'll learn a new language. I'll go back to school when I have more time. I'll reconnect with my friend soon. Monday I'll start eating healthier and exercising. Someday I'll patch things up...
