Dec. 14, 2008: It’s a Sunday, late afternoon and the phone rings. My mom, who divorced my dad back in 1975 and remarried the following year is calling to tell me he has had a stroke and is in our hometown hospital in Georgia where we grew up. My sister Cindy is flying the short one-hour flight to see him from her home in Florida. He cannot speak or swallow. I am shocked, to say the least. I hadn’t seen my dad since Feb. 1988 due to abuse in the family and we just started emailing each other a few months ago after attempting to reconcile many times before. I know my mom has called instead of Cindy because it’s easier for Mom to call everyone else and explain whenever a crisis happens in our family than for Cindy to have to repeat everything over and over.

Why did Rachel take them – and why were they so important to Laban? Harel explains that these small idols were believed to look after the household, and to intercede with the chief gods. But, he says, when their owner died, whoever possessed them apparently became the heir to the household. Rachel, no dummy, may have desired protection for their journey into Canaan. But she was also thinking about the future, perhaps, for she (and Leah) had bitterly – and rhetorically – asked Jacob: “Do we still have any share in the inheritance of our father’s estate? 5 Does he not regard us as foreigners? Not only has he sold us, but he has used up what was paid for us. . .” (Genesis 31:14-15).
He could recognize it from anywhere. It was the same exact stench that his father used to carry home every evening, clutching to his clothes and hair. This had been the smell of his first job, that indomitable odor that pervaded everywhere it went. He had thought for years that it still followed him wherever he went, that it clung to him across an entire nation never relenting. Now he remembered why.
Disposition of ashes – You have to plan where your ashes will be kept. Some people desire the ashes of their deceases loved ones to be kept in urns.

They stood around in the road, but no news cameras were there. One TV station had arrived early in the day, but departed abruptly after the company security boss stopped by to visit with them. After that, it was just a bunch of activists, with signs and funny hats, standing on the county road, milling around and arguing over who was behind it. They looked for conspiracies against them, intrigues, betrayal. Some eyed Lobo narrowly. It was boring but not entirely without suspense, There was the sense that a secret was about to be revealed, Perhaps a vision.
Two greedy sons carry their deceased father down the steps of a church when a handle breaks off the go here.

We find our childhood home which Cindy has been to twice in her adult years and we notice no one is home so we get out of the car and try to find the tiny set of footprints of mine from my three-year-old self when our driveway was freshly poured and Dad dipped my feet in to make an impression. But we can’t find them now. We stand at the top of the hill in the backyard and remember our old neighbors, the sandbox, how we slid down the hill during snow storms on garbage can lids, and spotted the old patio where Mom used to lay out in the summer.
Just because you child does not earn the highest test grades, or is rank at the top of their class, does not mean they can not be a HUGE success in the real world. I consider school practice. It is when someone is on their own striving to make their way in the world is the true test if they are successful or a failure.
