No, seriously - I'm looking into it. Open to suggestions, so long as I get to copyright them! Here's the start list:

Oh, you're still here.... Why is that?

Please, stop, now... Shirt can only absorb so much meaningless blather...

Can't we all just get along?
Apparently not...

Jesus, Lord at Thy Birth

So, we can say with confidence: God the Word dressed Himself in a body just like ours and lived with us, walking our streets and eating our food. And even clothed in flesh there was no mistaking His powerful authority. It was just as the written Word told us it would be - the magnificent Son of our Heavenly Father right here among us, full of the truth that transforms and the powerful riches of God which He gladly bestowed on anyone who asked. (John 1:14)

Dear Pat,

To say I'm surprised and gratified by your email would be a gross understatement. My family and friends have gone to amazing lengths to share our faith adventure and needs with a tremendous array of faithful and praying people. Thank you, so much for the encouragement and support . My children are just as fascinated with your work and journey. We will all be praying for your mission and safety coming home. Feel free to let us know how we can specifically pray for you and your team.

Dear Diary,

April 10:

Just moved to Texas! Wow! Would you look at all those wildflowers?! Who knew bluebonnets could grow in oceans like that??

by William P. Young

Why did I read this? After all, I'd been dissuaded a number of times by mixed reviews and my own reticence. I'm a parent, now. What dad wants to read about the abduction of a child?

Of those who previewed the book for me, they came from two camps: 1) Those who thought it was too 'New Agey'; and 2) those who thought it was the best theological writing in a century. Camp "1" almost prevailed before I even started. Camp "2" types always make my eyes roll. It's a piece of modern fiction, not the second coming of C.S. Lewis! Come on! God as Aunt Jemimah?

(In memory of Webb Davis - Home with the Lord at age 32...)

When once a life that followed
proceeds before us
We are left behind
With and within our grief.

I am Stone

The Voice summoned me from the depths before there was time
I settled where the newly-formed sun could warm me
I witnessed the seasons of an eon or more before
The others were summoned to me

Where are God's "Yes!" Men?

A man said "YES! Of course I'll go!"
There was no place, no distant land
No hungry heart, no reaching hand
He did not touch, or love not show.

a. Go to Google
b. Type your name and the words "likes to" all in quotation marks. (e.g. "Stephen likes to")
c. Report back on the first ten things that come up for your name.

Mind you, it's not so easy with MY name, but it's doable. And I've learned SO much about myself!

According to Google, Bram apparently likes to:

Dancing with my Son

I measured Canon Scott in the crook of my arm today as we spun around the living room. Ten pounds and half again as long since I first held him six months ago. He seemed to enjoy a quick two-step.

And then it hit me.

I won't have this for very long.
