  • Likely as children, we all collected fireflies in a jar and took them to bed to light up our rooms on a warm summer night. 
    I remember getting my parents to puncture the lid of a mason jar so the magical insects could breathe. Well, it turns out that all that light flashing was about love. So, this holiday weekend maybe take a second look at all that firefly flashing in a different light.

  • Since my husband and I have no beach getaway plans this summer, I thought it might be fun to take Sunday mornings and visit some out-of-town churches.
    So, a few weeks ago I researched online for churches that look interesting, making a list of ones to visit.
    The challenge: finding churches we both find interesting -- we each look for different things in a church.
    Years ago, I famously (or infamously) chose a church to visit one Christmas Eve based solely on the looks of the building.
