  • Nobody loves eating doughnuts more than my great-niece, Lily.

    At 3, she eats them face-first, right into the top of the pink frosting and sprinkles (her favorite kind).

    Lily says, “I like them because they’re yummy.”

    What else is there to say?

    My niece Jennifer, Lily’s mom, sometimes posts videos of Lily eating a doughnut on Instagram, and as I watch I can’t help but think that God gets as much, maybe more, pleasure watching her as I do, or as Lily does eating.

  • Childhood trauma, or Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE), causes adult onset of chronic disease. It was determined by a group of neurobiologists at Harvard University and Rockefeller University that the toxic stress of chronic and severe trauma damages a child’s developing brain. It essentially stunts the growth of some parts of the brain, and fries the circuits with overdoses of stress hormones in others.

  • Much like a gunslinger, I react quickly giving minimal thought to whatever triggered the reaction. Sometimes it works, most time it explodes in my face. My vision statement is to make quick decisions because waiting means forgetting and things forgotten are seldom remembered. Unfortunately, rapid-fire decision making fails to factor in possible consequences, hence the potential facial detonation.

  • A few years ago, I learned that somewhere in Citrus County Jesus was in a tree.

    Not literally, but a woman had called the newsroom to say she could see an image of Jesus in a tree that was in her yard.

    Lots of people think they see Jesus in stuff. Just Google “things that look like Jesus” and you’ll see photos of the face of Jesus in everything from pieces of toast and cloud formations to slabs of marble or rust stains on the surface of an iron.

    Some items are even for sale on eBay.

    People see Jesus everywhere.
