Inspecting the Railroad. Methinks her lips are swollen!

Here is Goldilocks. Indeed, one of Carolyn’s favorite stories now — behind the Bible where she is fascinated with the Creation and Abraham. I love washing her deceptively long hair and combing it while wet and wavy. Above, Carolyn’s hair is drying. Not dripping, but not yet dry with full curls (yes, the above does [...]
Carolyn enjoying the moment of discovering her new book from Aunt Sheila! It was also Carolyn’s first White Birthday — Snow!
Earlier I discussed the aching heart of separation from family. It is true that many of us have chosen careers or paths that take us to the ends of this continent and globe. We live in an age of technology that can bridge vast distances and increasingly easily. I can talk and see my wife [...]
I fear too much. Fear is my struggle with God over control of my life. My transcendent fear grows from not letting go — not turning my life over to God completely (leading to a reflection on Faith). My biggest earthly fears are that I will not be there for my wife and daughter years [...]
Carolyn is enjoying wonderful visits from Nana Shirley and Grandma Logi. I can remember what a treat it was to visit or be visited by (surprise!) Grandparents.

I remember visiting Taiwan and staying with a friend and four generations of family living together. The home was large and spacious, and with the grandkids running around, all were filled with life and good humor. Americans, on the other hand, are a diasporic people. My Sister and I live two thousand miles away from [...]
A sobering reminder that Man does not do well playing God. Chilling: Indeed, a disturbing 1997 study published in the British medical journal, the Lancet, [reported] doctors were killing approximately 8 percent of all infants who died each year in the Netherlands. That amounts to approximately 80-90 per year. Of these, one-third would have lived [...]
Walking with my daughter in the Sierra. Carolyn was diagnosed earlier this year with High-Functioning Autism. She exudes a never-ending fascination with His Creation. May we all experience such Wonder all our days here on Earth. Thank you Father — You answer The Question of God daily.
