Providence: Your story is weaved into something bigger than you

A while ago I wrote a song and put it in a drawer and forgot about it. One day it dawned on me that this song was in the voice of a woman. I had the picture of tapestry, of an artist weaving a single thread that makes its mark by how it is thread through the fabric of history. Providence is like this thread. We cannot see the whole picture, but the grand design and fabric might make sense if seen. Often, we will not see on this side of heaven the entire piece of art. However, we can still be connected to the mystery and have security in the fact that there is a plan and that the plan is working both in our personal favor and in the favor or humankind. The good news is that Jesus, the crucified man on the cross unveiled with his act the mystery. God wore and wears our human skin. He loves us, that much. Love wins!

A new chapter comes with a new role!

Mancard Proof: I’m the main cook at home, and I’m proud of that fact

It takes a real man to cook for his wife a meal she actually enjoys eating. In fact, if you cook for your whole family it is indeed a path to the highest on the “mancard” you could possibly expect to achieve. Bringing the family together is what men should do. Cooking   is part of nurturing others. Why let the lady of house do all the heavy lifting in this area?

The gold-premium level mancard is reserved for the guys who can do more than open up a bag dry pasta, boil, and pour on Prego red sauce. It requires the very technical balance of making a salad with the right balance of sweetness, acid, salt, and crunch. Get your raspberry vinaigrette spot on and you win! My son may not cheer me on this one, but he learns to see what its like to make a woman smile.
