Faith Mouse originator, Dan Lacey, will be blogging and flogging his illustrations at Blogs for LIfe. I will be standing in his autograph line to meet this talented on-line writer and illustrator.

The meeting will feature noted syndicated columnist and NRO Blogger Kathryn Jean Lopez and

is an excellent opportunity for individuals and organizations to network with pro-life bloggers and

develop an understanding about how weblog technology can be strategically used to promote life and turn ideas into action.

Will be held in Washington, DC, on January 23, 2006, hosted by The Family Research Council, March Together, and ProLIfeBlogs.com.

Life’s purpose

April 13, 2005 | By | No Comments

Paul Hogue, over at My Dogs Are Smarter, has written a nice response to my piece on suffering. (Check out the dog pic on his profile page – very funny.)

His observation that “God cares more about me–the real me: who I am in relation to who He wants to make me,” reminded me of an interview I recently read with Rick Warren, author of The Purpose-Driven Life:

Life is a series of problems. Either you are in one now, you have just come out of one or you’re getting ready to go into another one. The reason for this is that God is more interested in your character than your comfort. God is more interested in making your life holy than He is in making your life happy. . .

I used to think that life was hills and valleys – you go through a dark time, then you got to the mountain top, back and forth…I don’t believe that anymore. Rather than life being hills and valleys, I believe that it’s kind of like two rails on a railroad track, and at all times you have something good and something bad in your life.

No matter how good things are in your life, there is always something bad that needs to be worked on. And no matter how bad, things are in your life, there is always something good you can thank God for. You can focus on your purposes, or you can focus on your problems.

Here’s Warren’s site. I hadn’t realized that I subscribed to the “peaks and valleys” philosophy. But I did. . . even though my actual experiences are closer to the parallel track he describes: there is always something to be thankful for.
