How to Live Beyond Yourself

I watched Laurie Vanderpool hold a severely disabled young boy in her arms and proclaim that one day he would run and jump and turn somersaults.

She had me at the way she smothered him with hugs and kisses. Her love was stunningly holy and absolute.

I wanted to change my life at that exact moment.

How to Find Silence in Your Busy Life

About a year ago, my wife and I were fortunate to buy a small cabin by a creek. It is a wonderful setting.

Outside a small town, with a gently flowing creek behind it, and cow pastures in front, it is a nice place to get away.

The best thing about it, though, is it has no internet, no television, and no phone service.

It has helped me learn how to slow down my life and relish the solitude of silence.

What to Say about Your Valentine

When I was in grade school, I always hoped a certain blonde haired girl would drop a Valentine in my box. Each year from first through fourth grade I held my breath.

I never got the Valentine.

I used to think it scarred me for life, that Valentine’s Day would always be a day of dread and regret.

Then, one Sunday, I had lunch at someone’s house and I knew the rest of my life would be different.

I had found my Valentine, even if she didn’t know it.
