I’ll Be There For You

I'm certain we've established that I, from time to time, have some pretty freakin' bizarre dreams. Exhibit A. At times, they can be kind of disturbing. Exhibit B. Recently, I had a dream that was, yes, bizarre. But it was less disturbing than it was incredibly awesome. In this dream, I was married. But I … Continue reading I’ll Be There For You

Question of the Week #172

Would you be content with a marriage of the highest quality in all respects but one - it completely lacked sex? I suppose, if this were a marriage that extended from the life I currently know, I wouldn't know what I was missing. I once heard someone describe sex in marriage as a bonus and … Continue reading Question of the Week #172

Question of the Week #122

If you were happily married, and then met someone you felt was certain to always bring you deeply passionate, intoxicating love, would you leave your spouse? What if you had kids?

Another Parenthood Post

I recently wrote about how I had been binge watching the Parenthood TV series via Netflix.

Actually, not so much my personal life as the personal life … Continue reading Another Parenthood Post

Question of the Week #42

But really I don't think it would have any more effect on how I felt about her than if I … Continue reading Question of the Week #42

Day Thirty

A Dream for the Future This seems really similar to yesterday's post. As I mentioned before, I'm not really one to plan for the future. I don't know if that's a good thing or not. And, while I don't necessarily think of myself as a pessimist, I'm definitely not an optimist. I joke around with … Continue reading Day Thirty

Question of the Week

If the person you were engaged to marry had an accident and became a paraplegic, would you go through with the marriage or back out of it? It's tough to say how I'd respond in that situation. I assume that if I was in love enough to be engaged to someone, then I'd be in … Continue reading Question of the Week

Faith

Originally written in August of 2010... Caleb's hand trembled as he put the bottle to his lips. He was shaking so much that a part of him was scared he would drop the bottle. Another part of him didn't care. That part would be just as content with watching the glass shatter as with drinking … Continue reading Faith

Birth

Originally written in June of 2010... Jim wasn't in the delivery room when his only son was born. In fact, as Lara, his wife, gave birth to their first child, Jim wasn't even in the same country. Instead, he was half a world away, waiting anxiously to receive a phone call letting him know that … Continue reading Birth
