Humor has always been important to me. If there is a shield of faith that you can keep up against difficulties, humor is the Teflon coating.
It was my dream that I had clenched in a fist of discontent and wouldn't release. But time had now pried every finger open. There is peace in an open and upraised hand that isn't grasping for anything.
A personal offense is like a scratch on a phonograph record. I couldn't move my thoughts beyond my pain. It kept repeating, as if I were stuck within its grooves. There was only one way to play beyond it. I had to forgive them, so my heart could take its form again.
I want the privilege of guiding the arrows of my children and giving them the exhortations that can shoot them into the high place.
A disease and its treatment can be a series of humiliations, a chisel for humility.
