Without question, one of the most difficult things we as Christians have to deal with in this life is the apparent contradiction found in bad things happening to good people and good things happening to bad ones. Actually this is not anything new for... read more

For anyone fully committed to a cause, there is an inner drive that provides the motivation to keep going when the body and mind get weary. On the other side of the coin, when the commitment is lacking, there seems to always be a good reason to not... read more

My wife Blest and I are currently in the busiest time of our year. Due to having an online business, we are in the same boat as hundreds of thousands of others who depend on the sales in November and December to make it the rest of the year. This year... read more

Perhaps the most difficult thing in life to master is the art of waiting. Waiting in line at the store, for cars to move in a traffic jam, for the doctor or repair person to show up, for a difficult day to end or for an exciting day on the calendar to... read more

For anyone who has followed my blogs, the one I wrote yesterday on fact vs. opinion represents a huge change in my thinking from where it was even one year ago. I am not ashamed to admit that learning is an ongoing adventure and unlearning is just as... read more

What do attics, basements, garages, barns and closets have in common? CLUTTER of course. Each of these "secret" places provide the perfect place (we think) to hide all the stuff we either do not know what to do with or for one reason or... read more

True confessions time here. Proud of it or not, we have watched every episode of "Dancing with the Stars" this year. This is so odd because we have not watched that show for nearly 8 years. Why did we resume you may ask? Because of the... read more

As a rule, we do not open ourselves up to strangers. Due to being hurt countless times in our lives, we are extremely careful about who we give anything more than the niceties of courtesy to. Only a fool (or a masochist) would give someone unknown the... read more
