What K says: “I know the rules say I can’t hit you in the head, but I probably will anyway.”

Adam, we are envious and we shall miss you, but only for a while and then we get to take that bike ride.
Your eyes saw my unformed substance;
in your book were written, every one of them,
the days that were formed for me,
when as yet there was none of them.
I am hard pressed between the two. My desire is to depart and be with Christ, for that is far better.
1 Thessalonians 4:13
But we do not want you to be uninformed, brothers, about those who are asleep, that you may not grieve as others do who have no hope.

Last week, we celebrated a milestone in a project at home by picking up a pie from Rocky Rococo. The boys asked for bread sticks, but I suddenly realized. The same children who do not eat the crusts on their sandwiches, do not eat the crusts on their pizza. What is left when you do not eat your deep dish pizza crusts? Bread sticks are left. That’s what. So, we noted the inconsistency of asking bread sticks, while declining to eat your deep dish crusts. We did not order bread sticks.

The other day, I listened as one of my children opined on the superior tastiness of Subway bread relative to the standard loaf we buy for sandwiches at home. I noted that he often left his bread crusts uneaten at home and didn’t he see the inconsistency in his statement? He did not understand. I explained further. Part of the reason why you like subway bread is that it has more crust. That is, it has crust around the entire sandwich; the crust to bread ratio is higher. So, why don’t you leave the crust of your Subway bread? The answer may simply be in the perception of the bread, and it may be in the relative thicknesses of the crusts in question, but we claim that most breads are improved by their crusts.

One of my basketball players wore this t-shirt to practice last week. I laughed to myself and wondered whether he knew what his t-shirt really said.

When your son harvests his first buck, it’s a good day.

You know it’s a good day when you are holding short of runway 9 and landing traffic is “Fortress One Seven November.” Most folks residing at Oshkosh don’t take a second glance when they see this magnificent machine, but today I got to wait while she lumbered down final and landed 150 feet in front of me — a glorious anachronism that few will take the time to appreciate.

Our readers know that we consider every day to be a good day. This is because the Lord made all of them. Still, there are some days that remain exceptionally memorable, and so we ask the question, “How do you know it is a good day?” Here are a few ways you can know.
