Happy Father’s Day to the Moms

My mother raised me by herself (without child support) on less than $10,000 a year, working two jobs to do it sometimes. I know that cannot be an easy job. Happy Father’s Day to all the single Mom’s pulling double duty. You guys are the bomb!

He is Risen!

Jesus Has Risen Luke 24 1 On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb. 2 They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, 3 but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. 4 While they were wondering about this,…

Did you Miss Me?

Talk about an identity crisis. I went to bed knowing who I was on Tuesday, and I woke up Wednesday morning to find out that I was missing. Not my physical self mind you, I mean my internet self. Every internet search sent me to the same page “deanaohara” not found. I cried. I emailed…

No Friday Funny Today. Praying for Aurora, CO

The world grieves this morning as we wake up to the news of an overnight shooting rampage in Aurora CO. Everyone is in shock. While some are using this as a launching point to talk about the politics of our Second Amendment Rights, this isn’t the day for that. We live in a fallen world….

Une lettre ouverte à l’homme français que j’ai rencontré sur le Catamaya.

Cher Monsieur, S’il vous plaît pardonnez cette traduction (via google). Alors que je peux parler de nombreuses langues, le français n’est pas encore l’un d’eux. J’apprends le français et j’espère qu’un jour je serai confiant dans ma capacité à m’exprimer en français. Je ne suis pas encore confiant dans ma capacité, cependant, et garda le silence lorsque nous avons rencontré. Je tiens à vous dire que je suis trèsdésolé que mon mari a presque vomi sur vous. Il était très mal de…

Republicans, Sluts and Idiots Oh my!

Oh for the love of Pete. I had a brilliant post here, and then I read an on-line friend of mine’s response to Kirk Cameron’s gay marriage comments that I decided to delete it. His story was so full of respect and grace that I feel I need time to calmly assess my views on…

Right Brain vs Left Brain, this explains it.

I’m always fascinated by my oldest son who is able to traverse the hemispheres of his brain with little hindrance. He is both a brilliant mathematician and a poet. He is as comfortable in the safety of a world of order and structure as he is the free flow kaleidoscopic nuances of art and words. I’m envious. It is possible to do…

Tulsa All Lutheran Messiah 2011

Handel’s Messiah The lights dim and a hush spreads throughout the church. The choir enters from the rear engulfing the listeners, softly humming the beginning strains of “O Come Emanuel.” Thus begins the 91st presentation of Handel’s Messiah. What started with a small choir at First Lutheran has grown to become an all Lutheran tradition…
