UNEMPLOYED! – Sent on Saturday Letter #4, part 3

Dearest Angela, Has my last letter soaked in, yet? Let me tell you what I’ve learned about the tough times: One of the best tickets out of hard circumstances is contentment.

UNEMPLOYED! – Sent on Saturday Letter #4, part 2

Dearest Angela, How is it going, Sweetheart? I've thought of a few things that might help you.

Dearest Angela, How wonderful it was to see you during your vacation! How I loved every moment near you, seeing you with Dan!

CONCESSIONS – Sent on Saturday Letter #3, part 2

Sent on Saturday – Letter #2, part 3

Dearest Angela, Do you want to know what is easy? It is so easy, as a wife watching her husband, to want to change the channel. Some women, in reference to "husband watching" are real channel surfers. It's not funny, though. And some of us are just as tempted to hit the "escape" button, aren't we. … Continue reading Sent on Saturday – Letter #2, part 3

Sent On Saturday – Letter #2, part 2

Dearest Angela, I’ve been wondering something: how is it that we can see God wanting us to bear with the weaknesses of our parents, our neighbors, and our children, but we cannot see God’s will that way, regarding our husbands’ imperfections? I think it is because we think we’ve picked out our husbands all by … Continue reading Sent On Saturday – Letter #2, part 2
