I was running a few errands in my car the other day. The sun was out, the radio was playing, and I was singing along. The song was a joyful one and even my weak voice sounded good singing it. Then it happened, however. The sweet sound of the music ended and was replaced with the dreaded news break. I drove on while the announcer droned on. Gas...

Short and bald, with a paunch and thick-rimmed glasses, Bill was a quiet man who welcomed solitude and enjoyed the company of books.

The only girlfriend Bill had ever had, accused him of fearing intimacy in his quest for solitude, and warned that if he continued behaving...

One day, when I was a freshman in high school, I saw a kid from my class walking home from school. His name was Kyle. It looked like he was carrying all of his books. I thought to myself, "Why would anyone bring home all his books on Friday? He must really be a nerd." I had quite a weekend planned (parties and a football game with my friends...

The first hint of what would become my life's avocation and gift to this world came the night I wrote a note to my Mom and Dad. I was a young teenager and it was the first time I had ever written something that wasn't a school assignment. That night I just felt a stirring in my heart to let Mom and Dad know how much I loved them, how much they...

An Amazing Story Wow. After reading this story, that's about all I could think to myself. I couldn't believe how this could even be possible. A women in Australia had just gave birth to two twins. One of the twins was perfectly healthy, but the other not so much. After about 20 minutes of trying to get the baby, Jessie, to breath, the...

One night a man had a dream. He dreamed he was walking along the beach with the Lord. Across the sky flashed scenes from his life. For each scene he noticed two sets of footprints in the sand: one belonging to him, and the other to the Lord. When the last scene of his life flashed before him, he looked back at the footprints in the sand. He...

Planting Potatoes

When I was a boy growing up we had several gardens around our old house. The largest one of all was used just for growing potatoes. I can still remember those potato planting days. The whole family helped. After my Dad had tilled the soil, my Mom, brothers,...

The Tracks We Leave

When I was a boy I used to love walking in the woods around my home. My Mom warned me several times never to travel so far that I would lose sight of the house. Being a typical boy, however, I soon found myself hiking further and further away, testing just how far I could go into the woods without getting lost. After losing my way once for two...

Success

In the eyes of the world I am not seen as much of a success. I have a tiny house not a mansion. I don't wear fancy clothes. I don't own an expensive car, or a plane, or a yacht. My bank account is always empty at the end of the month. I am not a CEO of a corporation. I haven't made a movie, won a Grammy, or sold a million books. I am not...

In the car with Mom

I was both excited and a little scared my first day of Kindergarten. The large classroom was full of books and toys, two things that I loved. But it was also full of kids all larger than me. Because my birthday was in late September I was allowed in at only 4 years old, and this meant that I was destined to be the smallest kid in my class until...

As I was walking along the street recently I overheard a girl talikng on her phone. She was walking ahead of me and speaking quite loudly. It was a quiet street and there was only the two of us in sight, so even though I wasn't trying to eavesdrop on her conversation, it was difficult not to do so. What I gathered from her situation was that she...

Well, you never know where you are going to find the person of your dreams, but know this, it can happen when you least expect it. I was on a trip to Panama City, Florida with 3 of my best friends for Spring Break. I was 24 years old and I had never gone to Spring Break so I wanted to experience it once before I was too old. After arriving, we...

What It's All About

When I was in college I didn't attend many football games. I didn't go to many functions. I wasn't to be found at the bars or parties either. When I wasn't in class, my dorm room, or spending time with my friends there was usually only one place to find me: the library. I would spend hours there after class and on the weekends surrounded by...

A Mom's Letter

Dear Son, What do you tell to a son that is responsible, serious to a fault and sensitive? Let me begin by telling you of how proud I am of what you are. What you are is what you will be – this I truly believe looking at you. You have never caused me to worry and I always admire your focus to tasks at hand. At times you need prodding but this...

So I never pick up hitch-hikers as a rule. I don't know what moved me to do so today. I was heading from North Platte to Brady and he was just outside of North Platte. He jumped in and said "thanks for stopping". I said no problem, I'm...

The Elephant Rope

As a man was passing the elephants, he suddenly stopped, confused by the fact that these huge creatures were being held by only a small rope tied to their front leg. No chains, no cages. It was obvious that the elephants could, at anytime, break away from their bonds but for some reason, they did not. He saw a trainer nearby and asked why these...

A Happy Holiday Bummer On the afternoon of November 11th Veterans Day a cocker spaniel came running happily up to me as I stepped out of my car. I noticed this dog was different, he only had three legs. I checked his collar and found that he had three tags. One tag read Bummer E. and was followed by a phone number. I tried that number but it was...
