Erica’s a lefty and she always was sort of backwards. -- She even tried to be born bum first. Mother was in labor. The obstetrician sat beside her, reading his Bible. He told Mother to pray.
Somehow, they got Erica turned around. For some reason God wanted her to live.
“I’ll have the kid’s mac and cheese and a side of carrots, plain, no margarine.” Kara gave the waiter her chef card: I’m allergic to sesame, peanuts, tree nuts, soy, cottonseed, flaxseed, garlic, and potatoes...

Someone touched Janie’s shoulder. She knew it wasn’t one of the people around her.
She felt better, at peace.
And the kids behaved.
“Ahhhhhh!” cried Gloria as she fell off the rock face.
Marybeth heard the fear in Gloria’s voice. She felt Gloria’s weight on the belay rope around her back.
Gloria dangled there, enjoying it!
…even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast. Psalm 139:10

A good name is better than fine perfume, and the day of death better than the day of birth. Ecclesiastes 7:1 (NIV)
God, please help us always see the glad beyond the sad.
