Just this past Friday, my just-for-giggles blog, Almost the Truth, published a short piece about having prayed for a guy in our church who was working in a different state than where his wife and kids were living. The wife's reaction to the positive answer to our prayers was where the humor popped up.
It wasn't until I had clicked "Publish" that I realized the story would be appropriate in THIS space as well.

Truth is...life is full of both pleasure and pain, and it's not uncommon to experience them at the exact same time.
