Keeping them in mind
Years ago, we knew a young fellow who used to love to say grace before meals. No matter how briefly or fervently he prayed he always added this comment: “And dear God, help our food to turn to energy and not fat”. As you may have guessed, his family was dedicated to staying slim and fit. I have no doubt that if they have kept up their routine, their persistence has ensured that his prayers were answered. Read more...

Power of conjunctions
Lately I’ve been mulling over the power of a number of specific kinds of words known as conjunctions. These seven short words, “for, and, nor, but, or, yet, and so” can change the entire meaning of a statement. Read more...

Don't bite back
After a few fog-and smoke-free days, it’s disappointing to see smoke from California wildfires returning this week.

I will say, however, that it’s certainly cut down on the laundry. Read more...

From just seven notes
I can’t remember any time when music wasn’t a huge part of my life. Although she didn’t read music, I don’t think a day passed when Mom didn’t play the piano. We loved it. I loved it so much, in fact, that I followed in her footsteps; punishment for disobedience for me meant being banned from the piano for an hour or sometimes, an entire day. Read more...

What can and can't be seen
I’m overwhelmed with all that’s going on, as are so many, and yet I find myself searching for a topic to write about this week. I did have a couple subjects in mind but looking back at my saved articles from the past six months, I see that I’ve already written about them. Dead end. Read more...

Waiting with confidence
“’For a while’ is a phrase whose length can't be measured. At least by the person who's waiting.” Read more...

Ruts
Unless you’ve always lived a well-established routine that’s more closely resembled a rut than a schedule, you’ve probably created one in the past six months. I know I have. Read more...
