APPARENTLY, what my mother really wants this Mother’s Day is a Miami Dolphin’s t-shirt. At least that’s what the email I just received says. I’m a bit confused, however, because another email said what my mother really wants is an iPad. Macy’s tells me she really wants a particular heart-shaped necklace and Sharper Image says… Read More»

As I write this, I’m sitting in a hospital room in Miami looking over my son. He’s trying to sleep but the pain keeps waking him up. Parents absolutely hate seeing their children suffer. We would willingly take their place in an instant if possible but, of course, we are often helpless to do anything… Read More»

The late George Carlin had a wonderful routine about the differences between football and baseball. “The objectives of the two games are totally different,” he explained. “In football,” Carlin said in a tough military voice, “the object is for the quarterback, otherwise known as the field general, to be on target with his aerial assault… Read More»

Happy New Year!  What an amazing year this granny has had!

As a reminder, LOGOI’s $5 national missionaries are “tent makers” making their own living somehow. We don’t take them out of their culture or pay for any of their living expenses. Our purpose, rather,… Read More»

MANY YEARS AGO, I noticed a man living on the streets near my office.  I never saw him panhandling, although I assume he probably did.  Each time I saw him, he was sitting alone in the doorway of an old building as if far away in thought.  I couldn’t help but wonder, “How did he… Read More»

Without fully realizing our children would one day ask me to help them with their math homework, my wife and I started a family. For about eight years, everything was going great. We had three beautiful, healthy kids who showed signs of intelligence and not one of them asked me anything about fractions or if… Read More»

Funny man Henny Youngman liked to say, “I’ve got all the money I’ll ever need—if I die by four o’clock.” A whole lot of us often feel the same way. When I got married at the ripe age of 22, I was living on straight commission as an insurance salesman. Every month was a financial… Read More»
