My Body Is Like an Old Sailboat

Kevin R. Stone, M.D. | Posted 09.24.2015 | Healthy Living
Kevin R. Stone, M.D.

Each little tweak, each warning sign, if ignored, can turn into a chronic pain. I don't have time for chronic pain. So I learn to pay attention sooner, fix the problems, and do the preventive maintenance. That way, I'll get to keep sailing this "old boat" until -- one inevitable day -- the wind dies.

I've Only Forgiven Twice in My Life

Mette Ivie Harrison | Posted 09.17.2015 | Religion
Mette Ivie Harrison

I realize how often I've held onto pains that other people inflicted on me for days, weeks, even years. It was partly because I did not know any other way, and partly because I felt justified in my anger. But it was also because forgiveness does not always come as easily as it did in this one instance.
