Who Are You Talking To?
I can’t for the life of me get used to seeing what appears to be people talking to themselves. They are actually on those little ear headphones. Sometimes the person is speaking so loudly. I imagine it’s a way to compensate for the distance from their mouth to their phone. Whatever it is, I am struggling to get used to it.

You Choose
A landlord evicts the tenant. The tenant later explains, he should not have evicted me, so I decided to teach him a lesson. I set the house on fire. The landlord may or may not have been fair, but apparently his actions were legal. The tenant’s choice was clearly illegal, and a perfect example of a bad choice.

The Big Thank You
I’ve recently mentioned that our church is experiencing a high volume of illness, surgery, relocations etc. Individually and as a group we have been praying for strength, healing, and support. But, in the last two weeks we’ve experienced nothing short of a collective miracle. Six members were back to church following surgery and illness.

Full Stop
There is this four-way stop I deal with at least twice a day. Generally, it works well, and the accidents are few. Lately I’ve noticed when traffic is light the other drivers seem to feel they don’t need to come to a full stop. They pull up at a slower speed, but never really stop. My driver’s education teacher called it a “rolling stop”.

Generous Portion of Grace
It feels like bad things happen in groups. The urban myth is that death comes in threes. People actually find themselves waiting for the next death to strike. Certainly, when things do go badly among groups it can be deflating, discouraging, depressing, and paralyzing.

Grace Inspired Unity
A tornado wipes out the main street of a small town. A hurricane crosses an island leveling buildings and lives. That 100-year flood just happened for the second time in five years. Fires light the sky and incinerate an ancient forest leaving mankind and animals homeless. Tragedy and hardship seem to strike daily.
