— by Margaret Wideyke As pale streaks of coral openThe closed, dark, nighttime skies,Two women trudge the dusty roadThat leads to the place where He lies. Bring burial spices, they enter,Subdued by all that happened before.As they near the tomb they rememberThe rock that blocks the door. But when they …Read More »

May you get a clean bill of health from your dentist, your cardiologist, your gastro-enterologist, your urologist, your proctologist, your podiatrist, your psychiatrist, your plumber and the I.R.S.
May your hair, your teeth, your face-lift, your abs and your stocks not fall; and may your blood pressure, your triglycerides, your cholesterol, your white blood count and your mortgage interest not rise.
May New Year's Eve find you seated around the table, together with your beloved family and cherished friends. May you find the food better, the environment quieter, the cost much cheaper, and the pleasure much more fulfilling than anything else you might ordinarily do that night.

I knelt to pray but not for long,
I had too much to do.
I had to hurry and get to work
For bills would soon be due.
So I knelt and said a hurried prayer,
And jumped up off my knees.

My soul could rest at ease.

To spread a word of cheer.
No time to speak of Christ to friends,
They'd laugh at me I'd fear.

Inside every adult lurks a graduation speaker dying to get out, some world-weary pundit eager to pontificate on life to young people who'd rather be Rollerblading.

I encourage anyone over 26 to try this and thank you for indulging my attempt...
