  • In 1 Kings 3:9 we see King Solomon asking God to give him an understanding heart to judge the people between good and bad. Did God answer that prayer? Look at 1 Kings 4:29-30: “And God gave Solomon wisdom and understanding exceeding much and largeness of heart, even as the sand that is on the sea shore. And Solomon’s wisdom excelled the wisdom of all the children of the east country and all the wisdom of Egypt.”

    Dear Willing,

  • Disagreements and conflict are normal in any relationship, and, although most of the content of this week’s topic will relate to marriage, much of it can be applied to other relationships as well.
    Conflicts can be a serious problem for some couples who find themselves continually hassling, fighting, arguing, often about things that may seem to be trivial or minor. These couples will often find that the arguments end up with either or both developing bad feelings, even resentments and serious anger episodes, with very little, if anything getting resolved.

  • Call it a sign of the times or just plain good luck for those of us yearning to swap fast food fare for some tasty home cooking. Potluck gatherings are back and one of this year’s hottest trends in entertaining.

  • Gardeners get anxious this time of the year.  Warm one day, cold the next, the sun coaxes open a little patch of crocus by the path or we catch sight of an old landscape filled with waves of blooming white snow drops.  This year the show is sure to come early and the forsythia are not the first to bloom, despite this oft cited sign of spring! There are other early bloomers to keep us occupied until spring truly arrives.
