The Thing about a Backyard Fountain

"Tell me if I should pour your coffee or not." "Yes, I'd like for you to pour my coffee," I said. "I'm happy to. It's just that this is much earlier than you're normally up, and I don't know if this is a soft start or the real thing." "It's a soft start that I'd […]

The Same Eight Bars, On Repeat

Tyler is wandering around the house, playing and imagining and building in his mind and with his hands. As children do in their beautiful way of not thinking or hearing themselves, he is singing the same eight bars of a praise song. We raise our white flag. The war is over. Love has come. Your […]

Parenting Advice that Doesn't Fit Into My World

"When my kids were small, I just pretty much said no to travel." "I commit to be away from my family no more than 12 nights per year." "My wife cooked dinner every night, and we ate around the dining table. Dinner isn't about eating - it's about talking. And there are conversations that will […]

No Socks.

When I get overwhelmed, and sometimes I do, especially in December, my house is the first thing to go. No, the mail. The mail is the first thing to go. It's just a long, cold walk to the mailbox, and so I don't go. And then there's the dishes. We're out of cups. And then […]

The Story of a Birthday

I went to Krispy Kreme to pick up donuts for the birthday breakfast. But Krispy Kreme had a sign on the door that said, "A key component in our machinery has broken, keeping us from making our Delicious Donuts today. We apologize the inconvenience." I stood there and thought, well I don't need the Delicious […]

"People need spoons."

I was on the phone with Laurelyn. (You know how I love Laurelyn.) I sat at the top of the stairs in my jammies, since that's been my talk-on-the-phone spot in every home I've lived in since age 11, when I first remember finding any interest in the phone. The boys came in and out, […]

Pancake Ice Cubes

Right now, the boys are making cupcakes. Actually, they are doing an experiment with pancake mix, water, Gogurt, and sprinkles. Oh, and this just in: lemon juice and lime juice, both brand new in the refrigerator, each opened by the power of my Grandma's antique nut cracker. Don't think Christmas figurine with a beard. Think […]

"Boys, we are visiting our new home today for the very first time." "Not for you.  It's not the first time for you." "True.  I've seen it … a few times now."  And I didn't take you with me because I hoarded those glorious moments of discovery for myself.  "Here's what I want you to […]

Our New Home, Part IV

On our drive through the neighborhood, a smiling man approached our car.  He was waving us down, waving us over, waving, waving. I think he wanted to talk to us. I put down the window, and he started talking.  "I'm the neighborhood ambassador!  Let me tell you about that house that's for sale - the […]

Our New Home, Part III

I had looked at many houses; I had almost purchased two. I have friends who buy property a lot, and some who even go to browse this site to help them find out how to screen prospective tenants. That wasn't for me, though. Sleeplessness is a good sign that something's not quite right, a piece […]

Our New Home, Part II

There is a verse in Acts 17 that says, "He knows where we will go and he knows when we will move." I took it upon myself to write down every version of this verse I could find.  The words wove themselves into a quilt I could wrap around me. He knows where we will […]
