Sitting, Resting, Eating

According to a study by Columbia University, there are significant benefits to sitting down to eat a meal as a family.   The study concludes that when we eat more meals sitting down together good things happen. …”everyone eats healthier meals, kids are less likely to be obese, smoke cigarettes, drink alcohol, try marijuana….their grades […]

Awakened Souls

At the entrance to Wal-Mart and other stores this time of year, you’ll hear the familiar Salvation Army bell ringing on behalf of the voiceless…for those in need.  Perhaps you’ll be inclined to give an extra gift or two….maybe even bake something for a neighbor or donate items to a charity.

How does God “fit” into your life?

One day while driving home from a meeting, as I approached the top of a hill, I was suddenly face-to-face with blinding sunlight.  Everything became hazy with a yellow tint.  In an instant, I was unable to see the normal colors of the world around me – everything was a goldish blur as the sun […]
