  • If they are sad, share their sorrow. Romans 12:15

    As an adult, I realize that life is far more complicated than I once thought. The naive little farm boy from Trimble County had the veil ripped off his eyes a long time ago. There is real sorrow in this world. I look around and see so many of my dear friends dealing with things like broken or strained relationships, the death of a loved one, a romantic breakup, or a family separation or divorce... All these cause great sorrow.

  • Although grace is free, hope recently cost me $8 on Etsy, the website where people sell their handiwork.

    For $8 I bought a wire bracelet that forms the word “hope,” which I’ve been wearing all week.

    Lately, hope has been my thing. I was talking with a tattoo artist for a story I’m working on and told him if I ever got a tattoo it would be the word hope in simple script, lower-case lettering, written very small, with a period at the end. (hope.)
