THINGS ABOVE / Intro

It was the day that I lifted eight large bags of concrete that I noticed something change in my lower abdomen. A lump that had not previously been part of my physiology was now clearly present, and it was causing some measure of pain. Over the following weeks, I saw doctors, who all agreed that I had an inguinal hernia.

A Need For Teams

Part 3 of 15Things AboveA dad discovered scribbling on the seat in front of where his family sat in church. He knew his three-year-old did it, so he leaned down and whispered, "Don't do that. Jesus wouldn't want us to color on his pew." His daughter closed her eyes and bowed her head. With her […]

Wolves In The Fence

When I was in junior high, freedom came in chrome. To be free was to have a bike. Not just any bike would do, though. That's because most of the time I spent with my brothers was in the woods near our house. You had to have a bike that could go off-road and handle all sorts of terrain.

Things Above

In the corner of the Bible Belt, where I grew up, there were rules, rules, and more rules. Christians weren't supposed to listen to secular music. We weren't supposed to drink, dip, or smoke.
