  • Life is full of changes. The seasons of the year give us an example of that. Winter gives way to spring which quickly changes to summer heat.  These are all routine changes that happen every year.  Still there remain other events that occur that place more stress upon us. 
    Some have just graduated and are anxious about their future. Others are moving to a new location and are facing the strain of a new life in a strange place.
    Still there are others who have recently married, undergone a divorce, lost a loved one or are enduring health problems. 

  • One of my favorite authors is Anne Lamott.
    I don’t agree with her politics or her theology, but she loves Jesus with a raw, earthy, profound and honest love.
    She’s a recovering alcoholic and is not shy about openly telling her story.
    In her book, “Traveling Mercies,” she writes about what she sarcastically calls her “beautiful moment of conversion.”
    It was during the week after her abortion when she stayed home, smoked dope and got drunk.

  • If your daffodils didn’t bloom well this year, ask yourself these two questions: did you allow the foliage to die back naturally last summer before you cut it off; and has it been eons since they were last divided?  
    Patience is a virtue when it comes to daffodils. Often the first color to appear in early spring, their beauty is long awaited.  
    Then we have to wait another two months before we can remove the dulling green foliage. The foliage gathers nutrients for the bulb to store over winter, allowing it to grow and bloom next spring.

  • (StatePoint) Beyond keeping your refrigerator art in place, you may not think about magnets all that often, but, magnets are the driving force behind many products you use every day.
    Magnets can be found in nearly every room of your house, from your computer’s hard drive disk that’s coated with tiny magnets to store data, to your vacuum cleaner, which may have an electric motor that runs by magnetism. Magnets are everywhere -- in your doorbell, microwave and even your blankets!
