How to Stymie the Annoying Ringy Dingy

Ring. Ring. Ring. You’ve reached the offices of We Can’t Be Bothered to Pick Up the Phone.  If this is a life-threatening emergency, please hang up and call 9-1-1.  Press 1 for an appointment.  Press 2 for prescription refills.  Press 3 to speak with a nurse.  Press 4 for directions to our office.  Press 5, 6, 7, or 8 for anything else you may think of.

One New Year’s Resolution I Really Want to Keep

Just like you, I made a New Year’s resolution. And, just like you, I’ve already blown it.

17 Surprising Little Assurances Hidden in Psalm 23

You know it.  You’ve probably memorized it in Sunday school class. Psalm 23 – The familiar “the Lord is my shepherd” psalm. You may have recited it in church or perhaps while solemnly standing in a cemetery.  The words evoke comfort and peace like no other for me.

The Best Way to Live is “As If” Your Life Matters

Raise your hand if you’ve ever thought what if?  “What if I sold everything and moved away? What if the people at work were nicer?  What if I had taken better care of myself?”  Playing the what if game can be a powerful drain on our psyche. I know because I’ve been guilty of living my life smack-dab in the middle of the what if principle.  Different circumstances raise my what if levels and, lately, the gauge...
