Throughout the glorious years of our marriage, the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and Yours Truly has had few disagreements. I suppose I could count them all on my one hand, but I am not sure if it is my right hand or my left hand so I will just leave it at that. I hear, of course, of many couples who do nothing but bicker and fight from morning till night.

The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and Yours Truly finally exercised our right to a vacation and planned for a whole week to spend with our son and his family. Preparing for a week vacation takes about six weeks prior to the vacation and then six weeks after the vacation to get caught up.

People ask me questions all the time. Some of those questions I can answer, some I cannot answer and some I will not answer. I wish people would ask me questions I could answer and look good about it. However, it never happens. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage asks me questions all the time.

“What are we going to do about the president?” asked my minister friend. His question took me by surprise. And though many years – and presidential administrations – have passed since its asking, my response would be the same today. “Our responsibility is to pray for the president,” I replied, basing my answer on Paul’s call for patriotic praying.

This week is a hallmark in the lives of the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and me. Forty-three years ago this week, we began a journey that has just become better with each year. That is the benefit of marrying up. Getting married was not something I had put together. Very few men put together their wedding plans.

The minister who sat across the desk from me had been diagnosed as having one of the slow dying diseases. We had been friends for many years and he had come to share his inner struggles with me. He wasn’t afraid to die, having settled that question long ago by placing faith in His Lord, but there were some battles in life he longed to win and these desired victories had kept eluding him. He needed to forgive someone and found that difficult to do.

In celebrating my recent birthday, I found myself caught up in a case of nostalgia. I never imagined I would really get this old. Not that I am old, mind you, but I have reached the point in life I never thought I would when I was younger. Had I known I would get this old, I would have saved some of the energy I wasted during my teenage years. How was I to know that as you got older your supply of energy began diminishing? When I was younger, I could not sit still for long and no matter where ...

This year I celebrate my 20th year as a practicing grandfather. I am not sure that after 20 years I know anything more about being a grandfather than I did before. I have not found any books written on how to be a grandfather, maybe I should write one. I have enjoyed those 20 years and it just seems to be getting better. One of the interesting things about a grandfather is spending time with the grandchildren, especially when they are trying to watch a movie. I enjoy a movie every now and aga ...
