  • COLUMN: ‘Give us today our daily bread’

    The other day I had lunch at a restaurant that brings warm rolls to the table. It was a chilly, rainy sort of day and those rolls were what we needed.

  • COLUMN: Walking the dog

    As some of you know, I have a pretty big dog and every day she gets walked three or four times. It doesn’t matter what the weather or how we are feeling, Molly gets her walk. One day last week I walked her wearing a t-shirt, a regular shirt, a sweater, a hooded sweatshirt, and a coat, gloves and a scarf. It almost takes me longer to get dressed than to take her for a walk.

  • COLUMN: Predicting the weather

    What is it about the weather that so fascinates us? We talk about it, we watch the reports on TV, you probably even have a favorite weather reporter. And then we have The Weather Channel. Who would have dreamed that a channel devoted only to the weather could be so successful?

  • COLUMN: God is a planner and has a plan for you

    Here is a reading from Jeremiah 29:
    Verses 10-13 say, “This is what the Lord says: ‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.’ ”
    A wise person once told me that, “If you fail to plan…then you plan to fail.”

    A while back someone sent me a story that I would like to share with you today.
    Here’s the story:
    Once there were three trees on a hill in the woods. They were discussing their hopes and dreams, when the first tree said,
    “Someday I hope to be a treasure chest. I could be filled with gold, silver and precious gems. I could be decorated with intricate carving and everyone would see the beauty.”
