I recently sat down with two of my children and introduced them to a window from my childhood. We turned on the DVD player and watched some old Warner Brother's "Looney Tunes" cartoons. With all that is on today, I miss the simple, good, clean fun that these shorts offered. I also laughed because the episodes we were watching were complete. The last time I saw them on television, they were edited … for violence!

Last week in Washington, D.C., a group of environmental activists staged a protest. According to the group's Web site, it was the largest single act of civil disobedience in the name of global warming awareness in history. More than 2,000 people managed to clog the entrances to the Capitol Power Plant for about four hours. The irony? Their protest was blanketed by nearly half a foot of snow, compliments of an early March storm that covered the entire Northeastern United States. No one was arrested. Perhaps the D.C. police decided it was too cold to bother ...

It's another new year, and our county's spiritual leaders are busy implementing goals to move their churches forward.
We have just celebrated one of the most sacred times on the Christian calendar - the birth of Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world.
Another new year has come.
The new year has begun and it is a great time to change your life for the better. The New Year's resolutions may not have lasted very long or may soon be only a memory. The best way to have a great year and life is to put God in your life, in the proper place.

Have you ever wished you could go back and do things differently? Have you ever wished that you could go back in time and make different decisions that took you to places that you would rather not be?
You can admit it. At the end of the day, when you see all of the wrapping paper on the floor, and all of the gifts have been opened (and some are already broken), you have at some point thought or said, "Is that all?"
As this year winds to an end, it is gives each person time to look back not only on the past year but their entire lives. To the young, it seems that life will last forever, but to those who are older, the fact that life will not last forever becomes more apparent with each passing year. In fact the years seem to be rushing by, heading to eternity.

What gift are you looking for this year? Which one would be the greatest ever? Would it be a new car, a house or maybe a trip to some exotic place?
