Fatherhood

Just now I tied the sash on my daughter's first communion dress so she could play Cinderella.

I would gladly have my eyes pecked out and my liver eaten by birds as I lay on a flaming bed of poison-tiped nails if only it would save her one moment of dissapointment. I've asked God to let me.

Whoa... You are in Rochester. I'm at Houghton College... Crazy. I had no idea you were so close, I'll have to see about visiting sometime.

Actually, I was supposed to go to the Society of Christian Philosophers meeting there weekend after next.

Why don't you send me an email.
