Today’s Health Care

Well, I am 2.5 weeks out of surgery, back home, healing well and even doing exercise! I am weak…need to build strength. Three weeks ago the doctors removed benign cyst from my lower spinal canal – called a “L5 laminectomy and resection of intramural schawnnoma”. Afterward, I did have a spinal fluid leak – not […]



In the morning, before God gets up, I head to the hospital for back surgery. (No, I know God doesn’t sleep – it’s just an expression.) I know I have a kind, gifted surgeon. I know the hospital is excellent. My children will be with me and they will make sure I am taken care […]


Olympic Aftermath – Paralympics

I enjoyed the Olympics – not hour after hour but, the highlights. I especially like the personal interest stories about the athletes. But, my goodness, they seem to get younger and younger with each Olympics; or more likely, I’m just getting older! I admire the young athletes – their disciple and focus. I am encouraged […]


Radical Islam

This is an excellent explanation of the Muslim terrorist situation I have ever read. His references to past history are accurate and clear. Not long, easy to understand, and well worth the read. It was sent to me…take the time to read it. The author of this email is Dr Emanuel Tanya, a well-known and […]

One Great Speech

My dear aunt from Dallas posted this on Facebook. I think it is excellent! And on the 4th of July may well get back to basic American principles. This is a Speech Every American High School Principal Should Give. By Dennis Prager: (Let’s remember his name – he’s got it right!) To the students and […]

Chicken Little

Do you remember the story of Chicken Little? He was walking in the barnyard and an acorn hit him on his head. He thought the sky was falling and ran around telling everyone, “The sky is falling! The sky is falling!”  He got everyone into a panic. It seems everyone from political candidates, to legislators, […]

Songs in the Night

The last couple of nights I have awakened around 1:30 AM. Not what I like to do and not sure why it is happening. But last night when I woke up I heard birds singing! It was a pretty, happy sound – but at 1:30!? Birds usually sleep at night – I thought! But this […]

Visit Home

This past weekend I went to N.C. to hold my ministry board meeting and see my father, son and sister! It was a full weekend. I drove home to my granddaughter’s 8th birthday dinner last evening. My board meeting was very encouraging and supportive as they seek to help me do what God has called […]

Being Real in Life!

I flew to Little Rock this past weekend to speak in Little Rock at That Church. Yes, That Church’s name is That Church! Not a name you soon forget! Nor the people you encounter there. What terrific place. I had dinner with the women’s team facilitators on Friday night after we flew in. They were […]


This was written by another but I wanted to share it! “Ponder the potential of an egg. Ideally, under the proper circumstances of fertilization, the egg could become a baby chick. But just as most eggs do not become chicks – their highest fulfillment – so we, a humans, do not usually attain our highest […]
