Not-So-Great Expectations

​I consider myself to be fairly reasonable. I was raised by very simple and humble parents who've served faithfully in ministry for the last 53 years. Life was simple and frugal and we bought the cereal on the bottom shelf of the cereal aisle- the stuff in the bags. Our family vacations were always wherever the Southern Baptist Convention happened to be that year, because the church paid my dad's way. We didn't have much growing up, but we always had enough. I have rarely, if ever, felt entitled. So when I tell you what my pet peeve is, don't think less of me.

Teenage Drivers and Lessons in Mercy

My 17-year-old daughter is now a driver. She's driving. In a car. Like, without me. In it. And my baby boy (he's 15, nearly 16 and about to get his permit...we'll bookmark this for later) gets in the car too and she drives him....continue reading Teenage Drivers and Lessons in Mercy
