“What’s in a name? That which we call a rose By any other name would smell as sweet.” Romeo and Juliet (II, ii, 1-2) Juliet was correct. The flower would smell as sweet whether you called it a rose or a potato casserole or a Nebraska pig farm. The name would not change the fragrance, […]

{EAV_BLOG_VER:00a3b202b1dcb3b6} I normally don’t post small little posts like this, but because of the recent People of Walmart video (below), I felt obliged. Sammy and I ran to our local Walmart just a few minutes ago, and maybe it’s just Lacey, but I am please to announce that I believe the People of Walmart are the exception […]

Now that Maddie is home from the hospital and things are starting to return to normal, thought it’d be a good time to catch up on a review that I’ve been needing to write…for months. Normally, delays in reviews are due to a sense of dread. In this case, however, nothing anywhere near that. But […]

That is all. Well, not really. She’d improved enough and had drank and kept in enough fluid that the doc was pleased with her progress, and felt she was ready. And she really had improved–much more animated and lively, happy, had good color again…it’s just not over yet. Evidenced by the vomiting episode she’s already […]

Maddie had a very good night last night–was feeling and acting better, more animated, happy. But it didn’t last. She had issues early this morning to just recently, so she didn’t sleep well at all. The docs aren’t as concerned about the diarrhea as they are about the vomiting and whether or not she’s going to […]

Maddie is in Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital tonight, and will be there at least overnight. For those not up to speed, she has been fighting a virus for about a week now. Joshie had it before her, and he was done in about 24 hours. But Maddie was struggling, getting it, in hopes of not […]

Follow-up on The Shack

Comments Off on Follow-up on The Shack

A few folks responded to the original post either here or elsewhere, people that I know and respect. And they had valid questions and concerns. This I like and can handle because it opens up those issues and the book to discussion, unlike Driscoll’s methods. Speaking of which, found a fantastic summary of those methods […]

The Shack: Let’s Talk, Shall We?

I’ve mentioned previously how I’ve been reading–and pausing–and reading–and dog-earing the book The Shack by William P Young.  I’d picked up a copy at a used book store, after having heard about the book, not realizing it had been a few years since it had been published. Hey, I was kinda busy, ok? About the […]
