Inquiring Young Minds Want to Know

| March 10, 2010

Hyperlad is one of the most inquisitive five-almost-six year olds I’ve ever known. He asks some very interesting questions, so I thought I’d answer a set of them right here. Yes, everyone dies. That’s right, you won’t get hurt in heaven. God makes them, with help from Mommy and Daddy. No, I don’t really want […]

Things Change

| March 3, 2010

If you feel overwhelmed, if you consider doing something you can’t take back, consider this: you don’t want to die, not really. What you really want is for the pain to go away. Talk to someone you can trust. Give the pain a chance to go away.

Little Thoughts about a Big God

| February 23, 2010

I think justice is overrated. If God were completely just, I’d go to hell. I have every reason to be grateful for mercy. Sunday is the Lord’s day. Do we ever stop and ask ourselves why? It is because every Sunday is a feast day — the Feast of the Resurrection of our Lord. How […]

Please Don’t Promise Me a Cheap Fling

| February 18, 2010

Brittany Rotating Corpse found a gem of a Hallmark book-card. It’s from the 70’s, a fact that becomes obvious both by the cheesy mustache and the thoughts expressed. It’s title? Please Don’t Promise Me Forever. Evidently it stood for all the deepest thoughts of the post-sexual revolution era. Commitment only dampens love, and as long […]

Miracles Welcomed

| January 31, 2010

My friend Mary has cancer. I would be more specific, but it would take a page to describe all the cancer spots. She’s been actively getting treatment, and has already had major surgeries, including having part of a lung removed. (No, she is not a smoker — it was metastasized from elsewhere.) She is asking […]

Thought for the Day

Not all change is progress. The fall of the Roman Empire was a change.

Brood of Vipers

| January 19, 2010

Learn something new every day. What I learned today was interesting, all right. I learned a few things about credit, credit reporting, and collectors. Maybe I’m naive, but it really took me by surprise. First, let me tell you, in case you do not know. There is a place to get free copies of your […]

What’s Wrong?

| January 14, 2010

The other day I saw the words “What’s wrong with America” somewhere, and it got me to thinking. It’s easy to blame today’s woes entirely on politics. The left thinks it’s because of the right, the right thinks it’s because of the left, and everyone agrees that we have problems. Maybe politics play a part […]

5 Things I’ve Learned about Men

| January 12, 2010

Ladies, if you think men are a mystery, read on. 1. Men are human. Do not expect them to behave otherwise. 2. You can’t change them. A man who is good isn’t going to change for you. A man who is bad isn’t going to change for you. Do not go into a relationship thinking […]

Truth doesn’t disappear.

| November 29, 2009

I like to be gentle most of the time. I don’t enjoy criticizing people, and I don’t base my love for people on whether they live perfectly. I am a sinner myself, so I’m in no position to withhold my love for others because of sin. But there are times when the truth needs to […]
