It is no accident that the stores are jammed this time of year with last minute Christmas shoppers. I don’t think it is because most of us are procrastinators by nature. I don’t think it is because shoppers have learned that the closer to Christmas, the better the discounts. No, I think it is because we keep looking for the best gift ever for that special someone.
When I was young, I would invariably wait until the very last minute to buy a gift for my mom, knowing full well that there was nothing I could possibly give her that could show her the full measure of my love. Now, it is the gift for my husband Roger that causes me to wait until the very last minute. Oh, sure, I have lots of ideas, but somehow I just keep waiting for something better to explode into my consciousness that I couldn’t possibly have imagined the other 364 days a year.

These last few months have been filled with a series of tragedies too horrible to have been imagined: hurricanes, one after another, brought death and devastation in Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico and the Caribbean. Nature’s wrath was accompanied by man-made tragedies in Las Vegas and Sutherland, Texas. The loss of life and property brought pain and suffering that will continue for years to come and, for some, may never be overcome.
This Thanksgiving will be celebrated by many in shelters or bleak circumstances without running water or electricity. For others there will be empty spots around the table. Some may not feel like giving thanks at all and may be asking, “Where is God?” Continue reading “Thanksgiving 2017: Where is God?”
Hillary Clinton made a lot of mistakes in her quest to become the first woman president of the United States, but her biggest mistake occurred well before she ever ran for public office. It was back in 1995, when, as the chief strategist during her husband’s tenure in the White House, she grew frustrated that their many scandals where making their way into the press.
As first lady of Arkansas she managed to keep a lid on their misdeeds. She was well versed in Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” and successfully demonized and silenced anyone who dared question their actions.
However, in 1995, things were getting out of hand. Those of you old enough to have lived through the Clinton years may remember an unguarded moment when she lashed out at the “vast right-wing conspiracy” in a TV interview. But she was far from done. I can only imagine the hours she must have put into a 331-page report in which she vented her frustrations in a publication called the “Communication Stream of Conspiracy Commerce.” It was released during the 1996 presidential campaign by the White House council’s office and the Democratic National Committee.

Another Easter has come and gone. There are sales on everything from bunnies to bonnets. For some it’s an opportunity for bargains, others will breathe a sigh of relief.
Easter is the most important, joyous event on the Christian calendar, but for others it’s a reminder of their mortality and they simply can’t wait for the last signs of this annual celebration to be gone.
Death is something we must face. The question is, “If you died tonight, where would you be tomorrow?” Continue reading “Is the Resurrection Bunk? Don’t Bet Your Life on It”
Disney’s long-awaited live-action remake of the fairy tale “Beauty and the Beast” broke records on its opening weekend despite the news that, for the first time, the studio is featuring an openly gay character in a film aimed at children.
Disney has been promoting the gay agenda for some time but never crossed this all-important line. It’s executives have reason to celebrate. Despite this controversial content that flies in the face of Biblical morality, the film broke the record for best March opening, Best PG rated all-time opening, and scored the 7th biggest launch of all time for any movie. It pulled in $174.8 million in the U.S. where 70.6 percent of our population identify as Christians and another 1.4 percent adhered to Judaism.
Both the Old and New Testaments in the Bible condemn homosexuality in the strongest terms, as do all the major religions. However, only one theater in the United States, a drive-in in DeKalb County, Alabama, refused to show the movie. Continue reading “The Culture vs Biblical Morality (Culture Wins at Least for Now)”
Leftists have steadfastly argued that first ladies of the United States are off limits to public criticism even when they jump off their protected pedestals, move into the West Wing and dive into the muck and mire of political issues, even when they hurl hateful insults at political opponents, dress like a tramp and, yes, even when they openly criticize our country. These same leftists have turned on the afterburners in an attempt to demonize Melania Trump. Continue reading “Hypocrites, Feminists, Phonies and Fakes (The Rant Against Melania Trump)”
We have entered Christmas week, the most joyous holiday of the year as we prepare to celebrate the birth of Christ, the one who is called the “Prince of Peace.”
The trees have been trimmed. Cards have been sent. Presents are being bought and wrapped and familiar carols are being sung like “I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day.”
And mild and sweet their songs repeat
of peace on earth good will to men.
Peace is something we all want — freedom from worry, a quiet and calm state of mind, agreement and harmony among people. It’s a word that has become synonymous with Christmastime. Continue reading “We Need the Peace of Christmas (But It Is Conditional)”
