I couldn’t believe how powerful the high speed of the small fan in the dog building was tonight when I turned off the industrial size fan for a little break and resorted to the enormously smaller one. Then, I remembered. I had finally done the honors of cleaning the fan after who knows how long, ridding it of a huge combination of mostly dog hair…

Are you ready for vacation? That’s not my question. Are you ready to send your kids off to college for the first time? That’s not my question. Are you ready to start that new job? That’s not my question. Are you ready for that dinner party your husband roped you into having for his staff? That’s not my question. Are you ready for fall? That’s…

There is nothing in the world quite like watching a paralyzed dog named Miss Mercy chasing a beautiful butterfly parked on her little dirt road, but that is exactly what I did this morning. Neither is there anything quite like realizing I want to bless a few people who have hurt me more than any others in my lifetime. Nor is there anything quite like…

Nor am I speaking of purging your zillions of old e-mails you just don’t want to get rid of on your computer. I’m referring to an altogether different kind of purging.

I would stay on the ground and weep for how often I put one foot in front of the other and find myself stumbling once more, tumbling onto the cement as the nearly deafening noise comes yet again to scream, “you fell again. Give up.” But I know better…

Sometimes I feel like I am crying God’s tears. I look out upon a broken world and my heart cries.
