Through a Child’s Eyes

Over the years, I’ve seen this type of question before and, often, I’d answer the question by mentioning people in history who possessed the courage to change the status quo. I’ve also answered with select family members who came and went before I breathed my first breath. I wanted to know their motivations in life […]

Learning Through Regret

“No space of regret can make amends for one life’s opportunity misused.” – Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol This is the time of year when we begin to think back upon the past twelve months and take stock of where we are today. Some will resolve to make personal changes in their lives on New Year’s Day. […]

Man of Steel

Having begun the slow process of taking inventory of David’s things, from his clothing to his toys, we stumbled across his song book. Apparently, David had been writing songs. One, in which, was titled “Beautiful” and it was supposed to be a Christmas present for one of his friends. He didn’t get any further than […]

Look for the Helpers

“When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me,‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.’” — Mister Rogers This quotation has been making its rounds on the internet recently and I’ve seen its reality first hand. It’s been thirteen days […]

What Do You Want On Your Tombstone?

Last night, millions of children, and more than a few teenagers and adults, combed the darkened neighborhood streets in search of candy, trinkets, and treats (mostly candy) for Halloween. Over the next few days, Christians around the world will be remembering those who’ve passed on to the next step in the journey of life. This […]
