Defining Values

  In most interviews I hear these days, the term “America’s Values” is bantered back and forth.  “How does your statement align with America’s traditional values?” or “You can’t honestly think your views are in line with America’s values, do you?”  I’m left...

God of the Impossible

  Have I told you I love stories … true stories … inspiring stories?  No? … well, I do and I heard a doozy this week on CBN that made my heart leap and brought tears to my eyes at the same time.  It’s home-grown, too, as Hopkins County, Texas is close to my...

Prayer in Our Nation

Since 1952, the first Thursday in May has been designated as the National Day of Prayer.  The National Day of Prayer shares common roots with the celebration of Thanksgiving; both were national proclamations establishing a day of prayer, but in the New England...

Prodigals I Have Known

A woman I long-admired was Ruth Bell Graham, late wife of Rev. Billy Graham, most recently deceased.  During their marriage, she single-handedly raised her large family while her husband traveled for months at a time preaching the gospel.  My favorite book she wrote...

A Parent’s Love

I would do anything for my kids and grandkids.  I would move heaven and earth to see they received the care they need.  You probably feel the same.  That’s why the story of young Alfie Evans breaks my heart and I continue to cry just writing about him. Alfie, the...

Teeny Trouble

  Last December we got the cutest, most adorable puppy ever.  Our little Scooter (male Great Pyrenees) is now seven months old and has grown (a lot), and being the good dog parents we are, we didn’t want Scooter to spend his time alone.  Sooooooo, we got Teeny …...

Leaving a Lasting Legacy

Last week the world lost a great woman — Barbara Pierce Bush.  While I knew of Mrs. Bush, it was not until her passing that I learned of her character, wit and fortitude.  From the accolades of her family and the rest of the world, she left a lasting legacy....

Where Do I Go?

Last week I was trucking down a back road (admittedly with my foot heavy on the metal), admiring farmhouses on the right and left of the road, when I suddenly saw a squirrel run directly in my path.  He saw me, I saw him, our eyes locked, then he freaked out looking...

The Power of Purpose

Sometimes when I ask for input, I actually listen to the one giving the input.  Just last week a friend said she loved reading my blog posts.  I asked her, “if you ever think of anything you’d like me to post about …”  Well, she didn’t hesitate.  Hence, this post. You...

Is the Culture of Life Winning?

I have said for many years that science will one day prove beyond any shadow of a doubt when life begins and will lead to an end to the abortion on demand debate over when life begins.  This will drown out all other arguments to the contrary.  To that end, I recently...

Final Words

I get a lot of inspiration from various daily devotionals.  It helps me to see other people’s perspectives on an array of issues.  One this week was entitled, “Last Words,” by Greg Laurie.  He said, “If someone on their deathbed has one last statement, we want to know...

Content and Character

I once was asked if I could choose three people to have dinner with, who would I pick?  My answer:  “Jesus Christ, Billy Graham, and Martin Luther King, Jr.”  If I was asked today the same question, my answer would still be the same (although my list of choices have...
