I WILL get back to my "lonely man" segment as soon as I have more than 30 minutes to think and type.
However, a brief visit with a a side-bar.
My friend Terry died about 4 weeks ago from cancer. With so many friends and family in town, I really haven't had an opportunity to speak to his wife that much . . . until now.
I was so impressed that I thought I needed to share this. She (usual music director at our church) performed a lovely Easter service music program (mostly playing the piano) this past Sunday. But then, as my wife and I got to speak to her about those last moments . . . before Terry's passing, she said something that told me, as an Evangelical, that she is healthy. I saw her anger rise and she whispered, "That F...ing Cancer!" That was, in my opinion, a theological correct thing to say. I'm just glad she is honest about the anger and fear.
I just had to share that. Sometimes Evangelicals are emotionally honest.
