Thank God and those who guide, support us

I wanted to take time during this Thanksgiving season to thank you for all you do. There are always a few people who do most of the work. Sometimes that happens at work, in a family, in a church or in a community.

Government should not be parents

It's that time again. November third is coming and you have to decide: Will you go stand in line and navigate the waters of the voting pool? Or will you say, "I just don't have time for this, and what difference does it make anyway? I'm not going." Or, how about this one: "I don't like the choices. I'm not even going to vote this time." I actually had one person say to me in a restaurant this week, "Unless they can give me someone worth voting for, why should I bother?"

You have to choose for yourself -- part 1

Most religious people believe that God loves everyone and wants all to be saved. Yet some fail to understand that he created man to have his own will so he can determine what to do or not do.

Live life with a pure heart

We live in a world that is fueled by agendas. Man, by nature, tends to look out for himself. Occasionally, (it is one of the rarest occurrences) you come across a person who's only true agenda is the success and betterment of those to whom he or she is related. There is a person who is never quite understood. There is a person who is often rejected on the basis of trust. A pure heart often leads the bearer to be alone, even among thousands.
