When we used to ski often, I noticed that the sun would seem a bit warmer on the slopes during this particular holiday. It always felt like we had turned the corner weather-wise. I recently learned that February 28 marks the end of the meteorological winter. So, I

While fishing a local river, I slipped, fell into the heavy current, and was pushed down-river, helplessly. I couldn’t feel bottom, as cold water rushed all around and over me. I awkwardly dog-paddled towards the bank. When my feet felt the ground, I knew I was safe. I immediately realized I

Here is an excerpt. His last few lines are particularly poignant. Like anybody, I would like to live a long life; longevity has its place. But, I’m not concerned about that now. I just want to do God’s will. And He’s allowed me to

A few hours after publishing a post about our family, the newspapers reported about some comments the President made (an article here). Honestly, he is free to believe and to say whatever he wants.
