  • When God says, ‘I told you so’

    One of the great pleasures in life is being able to say, “I told you so.”

    I don’t get to say it often, but when I do, especially when I can say it to my husband, I do it with immense glee. I may even dance around and sing.

    Moms get to say I told you so a lot.

    Remember Ralphie’s mom in “A Christmas Story”? Ralphie kept asking for Red Ryder BB gun and his mom kept saying, “You’ll shoot your eye out.”

  • Thirsty? Drink this

    I’ve lived in Florida long enough to know that sometimes we have drought conditions and sometimes the water in the rivers and lakes gets so high it overflows.

    About five years ago, this area of Florida was bone dry. It was so dry that a local man who lived on a canal -- “waterfront property” -- converted the dried-out canal off his boat dock into a golf course, complete with putting green, fairway and a tall grass hazard.

  • Jesus offers rest to those labored and burdened

    During the United States Independence Day celebrations you might have heard all or part of the poem inscribed on the Statue of Liberty: “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free…. Send these, the homeless tempest-tossed to me.” The Gospel, gives the same message in a more powerful way: “Take my yoke . . . and you will find rest.”

  • Something for the summer bucket list

    At the beginning of the summer, my wife and kids came up with a “Summer Bucket List.” It is a list of things that they would like to do before school starts back up in August. They have big plans that include a lot of swimming and time with friends and family.

    I am very glad that they did this, because my experience with summer is that it flies by quickly. Everyone is excited when school lets out, then before you know it, it is the fourth of July. Throw in a family trip and couple of cook outs and, all of a sudden, August has arrived and the break is over.
