Fierce Marriage

by Gary Dyksterhouse Buttercup: "I'll never love you" (speaking to Prince Humperdinck) Humperdinck: "I wouldn't want it (love) if I had it." Buttercup: "Then by all means, let's marry." I love a good movie quote, and while this quote from The Princess Bride (don't be fooled by the name, this movie has serious comedic chops) is severely lacking depth and truth, it do...

The Consolation of the World

by Michelle Hodges I have a confession to make: I've never paid much attention to Simeon. I honestly didn't think he was that important. I usually speed read through this part of Luke, trying to get to the rest of Jesus' story. But, this time, I'm fixated on a particular phrase, "the consolation of Israel".

She has a head full of dark hair, and her smile could melt the heart of The Grinch. Her eyelashes get longer every day, and she makes the cutest sounds when she "talks" to us.
