In which I’ve got a song to sing ::

So I’d rather write a better and real story than a point-by-point defense, and I long to really see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. I want to live out an embodiment of the Love I’ve experienced and know. I can’t live – let alone write – a better story if I’m being swept up in a million comments and expectations and Twitter mock-fests and Facebook debates and frustrations and whirlwinds of offense.

    Great post by Ann Bogel, but I was hoping she’d have a little more analysis about the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Better luck next time Ann! :)

    Also, thanks for linking me up!

    • Anne Bogel

      Maybe next time, Ed. :)

      (And thanks for including me, Sarah!)

    So I was raised to always but always stop for children selling roadside beverages, and also one should also pay at least double the asking price because it’s just good math.

    Also yes to my good friend Anne on that post, it caused me to rethink so many things kicking around in my own head and to proclaim myself a little bit of a sexist on the inside which ugh… I need to work on because as it turns out I’m my own worst sexist. Link here in case you’re wondering.
