Last Sunday's Entry - Sunday, August 18th 2013 16:29

The Ophel Inscription - Wednesday, July 31st 2013 22:51

Blue Potatoes and Red Black Raspberries - Saturday, July 27th 2013 23:36
Well, "Doctor's Week" is over---sort of---and I'm glad it's done. I hope that I won't have so many appointments all bunched together again in the near future. Still, there are...

Farewell to Taylor! (The Great Dane) - Tuesday, July 2nd 2013 22:29
A sad day today. It wasn't the fact that I woke up with a screaming headache; I don't like that, but there's nothing new in that. Then, actually, things turned better when I...

Forgiveness for a Sinful Woman - Monday, June 24th 2013 20:06
A nice weekend having Sunako staying with us while both Nick and Meghan are at the "ResNet" conference. The weather has been quite acceptable. Over the last little while June...
Wisdom and her Opponents - Tuesday, June 18th 2013 15:00

Happy Father's Day to all who have attained that stage and have demonstrated that fatherhood has been more than an inadvertent physiological event for them. A good two days....
The Death of Kisa Gotami's Son - Friday, June 14th 2013 0:49
  Last time I talked about the resurrection of the young man at Nain (Luke 7). I emphasized that in performing these miracles Jesus was not only acting out of compassion...
A Resurrection at Nain - Thursday, June 13th 2013 0:53
Feeling just a little better every day. The headache and other distractions beyond the "normal" are slowly receding. I'll take that. Gratefully. That reminds me of a young...
The Centurion's Faith - Saturday, June 8th 2013 22:55
