Footprints of a Brave Heart

It was one of those evenings when the TV was on but no one was watching except for maybe Roxie and Boogie - our dogs. Then something was said that caught my attention— Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch was being interviewed — during the interview Gorsuch revealed that when he taught an ethics class at the University of Colorado he had his students write their own obituaries. Both a scary and novel undertaking for sure!

California pastor who was at Rose Garden event has COVID-19

The head of a Southern California megachurch said Monday he has tested positive for COVID-19, joining a list that includes President Donald Trump and key White House contacts who attended a ceremony at the White House Rose Garden last month.

Dead Fish Don’t Talk

Crazy laws! They’re everywhere if you know where to look. For example, a small town in Alabama has outlawed bear wrestling, while an Arizona town forbids camel hunting. Another place in Arkansas prohibits honking your horn in front of a sandwich shop and an Illinois town has banned saggy pants! Go figure!

For Heaven’s Sake Don’t Sit This One Out!

If you’re anything like me, I always thought prayer was pretty boring - and I wasn’t the only one! I once heard of a man who tried praying early in the mornings but kept falling asleep, so he filled his bathtub with water and sat in it, hoping not to nod off and drown. He was alive to tell the story so I guess you could say he was successful.

The Voice

“They begin the evening news with ‘Good evening,’ and then proceed to tell you why it isn’t.” Ha! Very witty quote and pretty true; plus, if you’re anything like me, you hear ‘Good evening’ many times over each night and love it. If this is the case, you just may be a member in good standing of the “news junkie” club!

Ditch the Tie Already!

Many years ago, when suits and ties were still the rage for Sunday morning church, my handsome hubby was always on the lookout for new ties. Apparently, when you're a guy, you just can't have enough ties! This particular Sunday morning, he had on a brand new tie, which was a little different — lots of swirling colors and very abstract.

“Always Rejoice!” Summer Convention of Jehovah’s Witnesses Continues With Sunday Session

In a world where joy and unity may seem impossible to achieve, millions of Jehovah's Witnesses have "united" together virtually to stream their six-part annual summer convention featuring the theme "Always Rejoice"! The program which is available in 511 languages worldwide was designed to be released in six installments, each corresponding to a morning or afternoon session of what would have been three successive convention days. The final two sessions of this convention program will be streamed on jw.org on the weekends of August 22-23 and 29- 30, completing this historic event for the Witnesses around the globe.

This Land is OUR Land!

Our world seems pretty messed up right now and that’s probably an extreme understatement! China is still behaving badly, Hong Kong is under siege, the middle class in Venezuela is suffering under socialism, and North Korea is still under a ruthless dictatorship! And unfortunately, to that nation-challenged list I would sadly now add our own America.

Raiders of Our Past!

Let’s suppose for just a couple minutes that you go to bed one night and when you wake up in the morning you have partial memory loss - a little amnesia. You vaguely remember getting up in the middle of the night for a drink of water, spilling some on the floor and slipping on it.

Social tensions ignite call for July Fourth ‘Healing Wave’

Amid rising social tensions in the U.S., one organization today challenged Americans to “invite someone different” to their Fourth of July cookout, calling for a “healing wave” across the nation.
