    Sometimes people ask how I think of stuff to write each week. I’d like to say, “The Spirit moves me,” and sometimes that’s hopefully true. Most of the time, however, I read or hear something that sparks a thought. Some result in a full-blown column and some merely snippets.
    Today is a snippets day.

    Love is something that we all have the ability to do and need to share with others.
    I love my wife, my children, my grandchildren. But I also love others who aren’t blood related to me.
    As we look around town, or in a store, or a restaurant there are many who need a smiling face to reinforce that not everyone is evil in this world.
