They are the greatest blessings. Even in situations where the family situation is not ideal, lessons are being learned and those can turn […]

I believe that, if we could, we would all give the gifts of good health, financial prosperity, world peace, the end of poverty and homelessness, etc. to all of those around us.

Today I ask for extra prayers and a miracle for Andrew. He has fought hard. He has had such a wonderful month […]

Real or Fake? Christmas tree, that is! I have had a handful of real trees in my 50 years, but I must say here is one area where I don’t mind fake. You can put it up and leave it up for as long as you desire, you don’t need to water or care for […]

1979, 8th grade, the year of my favorite Christmas memory.  It actually happened about a week and a half after the actual day. We were at my maternal grandparents house on a Friday night waiting for my dad to finish work at the bank and meet us for dinner. My grandfather and I were sitting […]

“Off to one side sits a group of shepherds. They sit silently on the floor, perhaps perplexed, perhaps in awe, no doubt in amazement.  Their night watch had been interrupted by an explosion of light from heaven and a symphony of angels.  God goes to those who have time to hear him–and so on this […]

The holidays bring joy, laughter, music, wonder, gifts, togetherness, family, faith, hope, and perhaps for a fleeting a sense of peace that all is (or can be) right with the world. The holidays also bring about a sense of melancholy for many. I know because I am one who experiences it. Don’t get me wrong, […]
