Mighty Warrior.

Most everyone knows the story of David and Goliath. How a small boy with a big heart took down the enemy’s prize warrior, who was a giant compared to most people. From there, David only became more famous in Israel. He led the king’s armies to many victories. He was revered for his courage and faith under great pressure and against great adversaries. 1 Chronicles 11 tells us that David was made king and then began fortifying the kingdom and building cities.

Pets — they’re our pals, our TV-watching sofa buddies and our motivation to get outside and take a walk. There’s no denying that dogs (or cats) are man’s best friend, but they’re not always easy to live with.

Maybe you find yourself repeatedly tripping over the water dish, endlessly searching for the leash, or dealing with an undesirable litter box stench.

An Open Book: The Law Of Common Sense

Los Alamos

I don’t know if this is a common occurrence, but the relatively leisurely birth of our first son, led Terry and I to take an accordingly leisurely reaction when labor pains started for our second one. Although we lived a 40-minute drive from the hospital, the contractions were mild and irregular, so we went about our business with the confidence of experienced parents. However, Jacob suddenly decided that he had had enough in a cramped space, and off we were, flying down U.S. Route 3 in the middle of the night toward Boston Beth Israel Hospital.
