  • Mueller: Choosing to ‘pray, grunt and giggle’ in life

    I love words and catchy phrases. I especially like the following letter from a man named Robert Pirosh applying for a job requiring verbal skills.

  • Truitt: What’s your tribe?

    We were looking through pictures taken at a writer’s conference I recently attended.

    “She has really nice hair,” hubby remarked about my friend Jill.

    “Isn’t it gorgeous?” I responded. “It’s like pure, black silk. She said her mom is Native American.”

    “What tribe?” he asked.

    I gave him my best “are you serious?” look. Only a boy who has grown up on a reservation would even think to ask that question.

    Thank you to Baptist Health

    My husband was admitted to Baptist Hospital Northeast in La Grange on Dec. 10, 2013 for congestive heart failure. He spent six days in the hospital. I’m writing this letter to let you know how wonderful we were treated during his stay.

    The doctors, nurses, aides, lab and x-ray technicians and cafeteria staff were outstanding. They were friendly, courteous, knowledgeable and acted in a professional manner at all times. The dietician spent a lot of time with me, planning a future diet for my husband.

  • Earley: Knowing the full cost of faith

    It is said that Christians are being martyred for their faith more frequently than ever before in human history. All over the world, in countries run by kings, tyrants and dictators, it is dangerous to be a Christian. It is common for family members to turn their own children or spouse into the religious police for discipline when they find out that he or she has become a Christian.

  • Manly vehicles set my heart to racing

    In general, I’m totally against sexist statements and forcing people into stereotypical gender roles. But every now and then, I succumb to this antiquated way of thinking.

    Recently, we went to our trusty salesman at the Ford dealership and told him we were in the market for a pickup truck. While he was checking inventory, hubby got to looking around the showroom. He was especially drawn to a somewhat sissified version of an SUV. The color he fancied was burnt orange.
