"The music teacher came twice each week to bridge the awful gap between Dorothy and Chopin." -George Ade

"That fearful gap is seen everywhere by all of us. It's the gap between what is, and what we think would be better." -Steve Chandler

"Gaps are a fundamental mortal condition, and thus the process of closing those gaps is a fundamental mortal exercise. In fact, there is reason to think of conversion–which is rarely something that happens as a blinding, stunning, single event, or as a moment we can mark in time–as the process of narrowing and eventually closing gaps.  True conversion takes a lifetime, and perhaps longer." -Sheri Dew

I love my gaps. They have kept me on my knees for a lifetime, and I am assured they will continue to do so. 


  1. I guess learning to love your gaps is a process, whether they're in your teeth or your life. :)

  2. I love that you have a blog! And I love that you included our family in your list of people to send Christmas greetings this year. Thank you. I have added your blog to my sidebar. I hope you don't mind. And I think I will send you a CD of pictures from last year's Lake Powell trip. I gave one to Joyce, but I get the impression she didn't share it with any of you. This will be a great way to keep in touch. We love you guys. We missed you at the Barton family reunion this summer. I could tell your husband was already missing you, but he told me some of the things you have been up to this year. You have been busy.
