I believe Marriage is…

April 16, 2019

“I believe marriage is a relationship between a man and a woman,” Mitt Romney said. I believe marriage (this is ME now) is a relationship of willing adults who accept their responsibilities as a family to pay taxes and, when able, raise children. The ‘when able’ phrase can include Adoption, Foster Parenting, Surrogate Parenting and […]

The Fast Lane: An Enigma

March 10, 2019

Many people who drive have a preference for one of the lanes on a highway over the others. My experience has shown me that most of the folks who are driving in the slow lane are planning to get off the highway at one of the exits that are coming up pretty soon.  Although, some […]

The Magic of Communication

January 14, 2019

I get an idea about something to say. My mind translates that idea into words and I think about how or whether I am going to share this idea with anyone else. Usually, I start to formulate how I am going to express my idea to another and, if and when the right chance arises, […]

Jesus’ Younger Brother

November 14, 2018

Now Is Forever

March 23, 2018

Those Annoying Neighbors

November 25, 2017

You have them, too. Those annoying neighbors who always put their Holiday decorations out one day before you do and they almost always look spectacular. The neighbors with their yards that are immaculate and always look like something out of Homes and Gardens. And, their kids who are always well dressed, well mannered, and well […]

The Two Worst Days of the Week

November 24, 2017

Every week there are two days that are going to happen and over which we have Little or No Control: Yesterday happened.  It’s over.  There is nothing we can do about that day anymore. But, we can take some learning out of our Yesterdays if we choose to. What happened?  What can we learn from […]
