I have a portrait of my dad that I shot with my old Nikon d800 I used to own. This is closer too the time when he was healthy and not sick, He had a big white beard and wavey white hair plus silky blue eyes, He was a very...

I was watching TMZ - aka Thirty Mile Zone, last night, late night. There was an article about a man they referred to as Hollywood Jesus, who recently died. He dressed up in a white robe like Jesus wore and was about as much like...

This is probably nothing new but as I watched the news, I saw one church in Minneapolis was offering emergency shelter over the blistering cold weekend for the homeless. Wind chills reached 30 below. I thought this was super...

Hugo took me to the bus depot and that saved me a lot of money. It is more expensive to take a taxi across the city than to take a bus to go to another city. I started my trip at midmorning so that we would not be driving at peak...

Sound Biblical Doctrine, that is what I have naively assumed most Christians believe (as I believe), but that is not what is happening in these last days. As I ponder this and how falsehood is becoming more accepted, I am reminded...

Waking up in the wee hours, I noticed right away that something was wrong. No nightlights glowed in the bedroom, (or anywhere else in the house). The power was out. One wouldn’t think that would be such a problem. It never...

How to Get Back to Living @mythociate (14431) • Oklahoma City, Oklahoma 3 Jan
I know 'one belief is a-whole-`nother-level above the other'--i.e. I'm not saying FOX NEWS is-or-isn't Christian or that the new tax-plan will-or-won't increase wages--but I am saying that 'the power your hopes depend-on...

We are all cozy in our second night's hotel here in Harrisonburg, Virginia. We have stayed here 3 times before and actually spent a week at a timeshare nearby so we are relatively familiar with the area. This is a new hotel for us...

I was undecided about writing this depressing post when everyone is celebrating the New Year, but I want you to know why I will not be online often the next few days. Early this morning, my dear mother has stopped to suffer, she...

Alice Henry I'm so very sorry to hear that you have lost your mother to death. Perhaps a scripture that I love will bring you some comfort. John 5:28, 29 or Acts 24:15 which says: "I have hope toward God...that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous...

Back in October my parents celebrated their 56 th anniversary in Georgia. While they were there they went to the Cabbage Patch Doll Hospital. They bought all of their daughters and granddaughters a Cabbage Patch Doll. I have...

The washing machine has been washing all morning. I decided to do an extra load with my jeans. They were not dirty, but they look better when they are just washed. And I will certainly take a pair to San Fernando. I bought a...

I went down town to go to physical therapy and when I was done there I went to the drug store. Well I decided to leave my car running. I remember looking at the door to make sure it wasn't locked and it wasn't! So I prayed and...

It is said that the eyes are windows of the soul, but can one really tell the mind of a person by looking deep into his or her eyes? Sometimes it is difficult to know if a person is sincere or speaking the truth. I once dated...

Alice Henry I know several people that will not look me in the eye when they are talking to me. I'm just the opposite. I look directly in the eyes of someone that I am talking with, even if they don't look directly at me. I was a trainer in sales for over 35 years and...

I'm sure many more members would try to compose poems if they only knew how to find fitting end rhymes. Of course, rhymes aren't all you need. A stress pattern must also be found. All this hassle can be avoided if you decide to...

Have you heard the expression 'cold enough to freeze the balls off a br*** monkey'? Did you think it rather a risqué comment? I always thought it was although I didn't understand it. I learnt today that it actually comes from...

Being middle aged, my definition of "pop" is completely different from the younger generation's definition. These are oldies but goodies, classics of the bygone era. Here's the next song on the countdown of my favorite pop...
