What is “Press This”?

Press This is actually a tool I’ve added to my website that allows me to extensively quote other people’s work or reprint an entire article – with proper citations. It is listed as a “category” along with cancer, biking, India, etc. This is generally not going to be stuff I wrote, though I may add comments, but it is stuff I’m reading and am interested in. It may be articles in support of a blog post, book reviews, links to other people’s blogs, or – whatever.

I will not notify subscribers of new posts in this category. If you’re curious, check it out whenever you come to my the website by clicking on “Press This” in the list of categories on the right side of the page. If you are a subscriber, and want to be notified, you should be able to manage your subscription and ask to be notified when something is added in this category.

    Dear Cookie–

    We don’t know one another, but a friend steered me toward your website with the admonition that you are “one of the most remarkable people in the world,” and now that I’ve been following you for a few weeks, I know she’s right. Please know what an inspiration you are to a stranger up here in Michigan who will long look to you as a model of courage and decency and faith–and really of life itself–in the midst of a kind of pain I can’t begin to imagine. You’re in my thoughts and prayers, and I thank you for showing all of us how deeply it is possible to live. I admire you immensely–

    All best,
    Leslie Stainton

      Dear Leslie, Thank you for your kind and encouraging words; I am sure that you are also a model to someone somewhere for something admirable. Stephen Carter’s book, “Integrity” has helped define how I want / try to live my life: (1) discerning what is right and what is wrong;(2) acting on what you have discerned, even at personal cost; and (3) saying openly that you are acting on your understanding of right from wrong. (http://charitableliving.net/about-charitablelivingnet/) The hard part is when I flub up! How to live with integrity when I’ve failed is the hard part… In the midst of this challenge, being honest about how I feel – especially when I don’t feel so “inspired” myself, is really hard. My role models are my sister-in-law Colleen, Tonessa – a woman in my Sunday School class, and Mira – my closest friend from Woodstock School in India, all of whom have lived with chronic pain much longer than I have – usually with a lot less complaining! I, on the other hand, believe in “Gripe Therapy”: honest and (very) open conversation about what my my life is like. The challenge will be to continue to be honest and open when I do feel scared (like some days this last weekend) or angry and when I do begin to question my faith… I don’t want to just be a whiner. Pray that I will be faithful. Pray for me – and don’t put me on a pedestal!


      PS I added you to my subscriber list, if you don’t mind.

      Dear Leslie,

      I met your “friend”, I think, at the doctor’s office yesterday, is she a nurse? Thanks for your encouragement, this week has been hard, with more uncertainties and difficulties. Today, I am very tired, having woken up because of pain at least once an hour all night… Please pray for Dave, who is substitute teaching without a good night’s sleep – and for me to simply be able to sleep today.

      Thank you.
