Dearest Angela, How wonderful it was to see you during your vacation! How I loved every moment near you, seeing you with Dan! It is simply wonderful to watch the two of you relate to each other. You have hardly lost the glow of a new bride. You remind me of myself when I was your age. … Continue reading UNEMPLOYED! – Sent on Saturday Letter #4, part 1
Love. It's time we realize the love a man feels for a woman differs from what we experience in return. Before we go further, let's define love. I will not use a dictionary here, because I want us to work from a Biblical definition of love, which includes the following qualities: patience kindness not envying … Continue reading When a Man Loves a Woman
It happens. Twice in history it has happened. Sort of. I mean, twice in history, a man looked around, could find no suitable partner for life, and his side was opened, and gave rise to the existence of another “one” who was like him, suitable for him. Okay, we know the Bible, in the book … Continue reading When a Man Gives Birth
How fast does sin spread? Fast. They've still got apple skin bits stuck in their teeth, juice on their chins, and they are in denial about blame. The woman made me do it. The devil made me do it. My past made me do it, my parents made me do it, my teacher made me … Continue reading Passing the Buck

She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it. Genesis 3:6 For Adam was formed first, then Eve. … Continue reading He DID Eat. Part 1
The classic human male depends upon the female from the moment he is conceived. Why? It is easy to see: she is the mother and manages his survival. Her hormonally natural tendencies to softness, milk production, multi-tasking, etc., are perfect for this job. Although many may try, no one else can do sustenance like a mom. … Continue reading What Is a Man?

One night, long ago, I walked the floor with a very sick child. Wiping his forehead and body with a damp cloth and humming to him softly seemed to help him. It took hours, but finally he slept. In the process, we accumulated an entire load of soiled bedding, which truly needed washing, immediately. So … Continue reading The Battle . . .
