Anticipation

Emery’s here. She’s a 7 lb.9 oz. bundle of joy!  I am so excited. Our fourth grand baby, born on October 18th couldn’t have come soon enough and we were all smiles when we saw her pretty face for the very first time. What a fun few weeks it has been!

The miracle of the happening

Few things get our attention as much as speed. We want the fastest computers, the fastest routes to work, the fastest ways to get rich, the fastest….well, everything.

Help wanted

It happened like this one Sunday morning at my brother-in-law’s church in Minnesota: Someone had taped a bright-yellow sign to the front door, with an apology to those gathering for worship: “Sorry. We weren’t able to find anyone to serve as greeters today. Let yourself in!” The congregants shrugged, then opened the door,…

For better or for worse

The small country church where our family worships every Sunday turned 125 years old this summer. We celebrated with a pageant, picnics, and an old-fashioned “hymn sing” under a big white tent. We lingered long over tables, while our children ran unending circles around a church tucked into the crook of a farm field.…
