The Emperor Has No Clothes . . .

and the Tin Man has a heart, after all.


It's a good thing to realize that there is an "other side" after all. That troubles are temporary, that the light at the end of a tunnel is NOT a locomotive and that I'm not Wile E. Coyote.

It's a good thing to wake up from a nap and realize that, through it all, God has sustained you, as He had promised.

It's a good thing to be prepared to take yet another long, hopeful look deep, deep inside . . . and realize almost immediately that your heart is still there, still beating, still feeling, still living.

It's a good thing to feel like a man again, and not just a prettily decorated bauble, fragile and empty.

It's a good thing to realize the prince of this world has no enduring power.

It's a good thing to realize that the emperor has no clothes . . . and the tin man does indeed have a heart, after all.
