Trump for Minorites

It’s November 9, and we can rest a little now, knowing that the craziest election in history has ended. My husband said it best a few weeks back when he commented that an entire history book or college course could be dedicated to this election alone. Trump won, and the Republicans pretty much swept the map in all areas. No…

Super Tuesday: WWJV

It’s Super Tuesday and many people feel a little let down by the choices set before them. Many of us are left scratching our heads, asking, “Who would Jesus vote for?” I prayerfully debated between two choices before going to the polls this morning. Both are Christian men, who I feel would make a great president if elected. (Actually the…

America’s Fading Glory

At a time when we all should celebrate our independence and enjoy the freedoms of living in America, my mind is filled with fear. I have not felt such a fear for our nation since my Freshman year in college when 9/11 hit our country. The difference is that terrorists attacked 14 years ago, and though there is a threat…

The Curse of Comparison

When I was a young girl we played a game called MASH, which was a clever adolescent acroynym for Mansion, Apartment, Shack or House. There were other options too, like your job, spouse, car, number of children, etc. You concentrated on when to stay “stop” as your buddy drew a spiral on the piece of paper. Then the lines were…

Real Christianity

This Sunday churches across America will have pews running over as “people come out of the woodworks” (as we say in the South) for Easter. I admit to sometimes feeling a little aggravated at the fact that many people only show up out of some conscience obligation that tells them “that’s what you do on Easter Sunday” (or at least…

Remembering 9/11

It is hard to believe 12 years have passed since 9/11 (and since I was a freshman in college!). Every year about this time we honor those who fought the terrorists and became instant heroes whether they wanted to or not. Several specials have ran on TV about that dreadful day and Alan Jackson’s song “Where Were You When the World…
