Grace and Hopes in Dirty Carpets

January 27, 2015

It started with shoes and carpet.

On the main floor of our old house all we had was tile and hardwood. Over several years of living there, all of us got used to just walking into the house with our shoes on.

This is What I Told My Sons about Girls

January 25, 2015

On a chilly morning we went to the park to toss around a baseball. That’s what we do. That’s our thing. The three of us fan out across the diamond and throw back and forth. After a while, we went across the street for ice cream… just me and the boys and our cookies ’n cream….More
