The weekend beginneth

1)  It’s Friday night, and I can already tell you what the weekend will hold:  A)  plowing through piles of grading; and B) fighting my everlasting cold.  Humph.  It’s hard to imagine any circumstance, short of winning the lottery or having a visitation from Mary, that could make this weekend top last weekend.  But that’s life, right?  Sometimes you have a nice romantic date with your honey, and sometimes you have an extended dull date with your schoolwork.  The variety keeps us on our toes.

2) I’m a big fan of grandparents.  Sometimes, I forget that Jesus had them, too.  My latest Busted Halo Question Box answer dives into the question of who Mary’s parents were, and what we know about them, and how we know it.

3)  They say you can tell a lot about a person by the books she reads.  I’ll go one step further and say that you can tell even more about a person by the books she RE-reads.  And the one series I’ve re-read more than any other in my life are the Betsy-Tacy books by Maud Hart Lovelace.  Never heard of them?  Aww, you’re in for a treat.  You can read all about them in my latest column at

Happy Weekend!
