When I was young, I used to roll my eyes and chuckle whenever my parents, my grandparents, or other adults would start reminiscing about life in "the good ole days." They'd start talking the fact that a loaf of bread used to cost 5 cents, or that the right way to make coffee is with a pe...

I was so surprised a couple of weeks ago. I was watching Good Morning America and their special guest for the morning was a young Christian gospel artist named Tasha Cobbs. She was preparing to sing one of her newer songs, it was called "Getting Ready." The amazing and surprising thin...

It was a rather strange ending of 2017 and beginning of 2018 this year. I had planned to be basking in the sun and the 80+ degree WARMTH on a Caribbean cruise with two of my friends over the New Year's holiday. However, at the very last minute, despite the fact that I had already checke...

When I'm on vacation, I'll often search to see which church I might want to visit for worship. Many of you know that I normally go to a friend's timeshare every year in Las Vegas - and I know that sounds strange, but the resort has the best lazy river in the world - it just so happens to...

Thanks to the Bible study lesson I've been preparing this week, I've been thinking a lot about the difference between joy and happiness. We talk about the Christmas season being a season of JOY, but what does that mean? Does it mean we should be spending the next several weeks smili...

In case you aren't aware of it, I am one of the least crafty persons on the face of the earth. It's embarrassing to admit that, but it's true. So when I was faced with helping my granddaughter, Lailah, make a gingerbread house a couple of weeks ago, it sounded like a dauntin...

I watched with great interest the movie "Wonder" over this past weekend. Actually, we went at the suggestion of my 12-year-old grandson, Jalen, who said, "Oh! We're reading that book in school, Mom-mom - let's go see the movie'!" I asked, "Well, what's it about?" "It's about a boy wit...

I was watching TV with my grandson this weekend, and suddenly there appeared a blast from my past - I hadn't thought about this little fellow for YEARS. I said, "Oh NO!! That can't be MR. POTATO HEAD, can it??!!!!" Well, I took a good look at Mr. Potato Head's ...

I bought a nice, soft pullover sweater a few weeks ago. I tried it on at the store and it fit well, I like the color, and I thought I'd get a lot of use out of it this fall and winter. Of course, at the time, we were in the middle of a run of 70-degree-plus weather, so I simply ...

It's a little late, but thank you all so much for your thoughts, prayers, as well as the multitude of cards and notes following the death of my Mom a few weeks ago. I appreciate your kind words of sympathy and the many personal notes reminding me of the greatest truths of our faith: "even...
