Election Time again

Tomorrow is primary day in West Virginia. Ohio’s was last Tuesday. Why do politicians think that telling us what the other guy DOESN’T do, is enough to convince us to vote for them? Do they really have so few qualifications that the only way I will want to vote...

Christian Values

– – – big sigh – – – Yep, that’s how I feel. The political/religious debating is wearing me out. Both sides are causing me to be weary. First, those who feel the need to “protect” the United States from the Christians. Some call them radical liberals. I personally...

Life is sometimes hard

Today I was thinking about investing time in people . . . I’m grateful for those who grow and stick by us. But even with those who are there for us, it always amazes me at how hurt I feel when those I’ve invested time in (even prayer time)...

Christmas

Sometimes it amazes me how many people have shaped my Christmas and the traditions that surround it. In some cases these folks didn’t intentionally begin traditions. Most don’t even know that we have a tradition that reminds us of them. Thanks to my mom and dad I can’t imagine...
