This swath of flesh pops and snaps about me like a snatch of ribbon snagged on the antenna of a speeding holiday roadster. The impulse is great to reach out a frantic finger and pull it in, before life flails it to shreds. Patience. The wind will soon unkink the knots and whisk it away to clear blue sky.
Wish You Were Here: Letters From the Foot of the Cross
It is difficult to imagine that someone with an ideal family, a Ninja body, and a six-digit income can relate to my messy life in the middle of a hay field: my pants are too tight, my marriage is stressed, and my closets are a disaster.
But the truth is, life is messy...whether you look like you have your act together or not. If you are struggling in the trenches of life with muck up to your eyeballs, then you and I have something in common. Welcome!
This collection of "letters" explores the practical implications of the gospel for the nitty-gritty business of everyday life. Join me on a journey to discover strength for the day, encouragement to persevere, and flashes of joy to brighten the way.
