Do you wonder if you are going through your days operating in God’s will? Many of us ask ourselves that question, I’m sure. Let me offer you a way to gain some certainty about that question.

I sat in front of the TV and observed Syria’s plight: the genocide of their people, including children of all ages, destroyed by gases and chemicals as the medics and laymen on the street tried to save their precious future. I wept, for I realized from my own experience, there is absolutely …

It wasn’t but a few weeks ago that an anonymous and somewhat bombastic letter-to-the-editor appeared in another newspaper in town. The letter, supposedly written by an angry mom who apparently thought going public with all sorts of accusations about happenings at Waxahachie High School would…

My closet clothes rack came loose from the wall, sending all my clothes into a tangled heap on the floor. It nearly put me over the edge! My life seems to be in a constant state of flux — if not chaos — with only two areas of organization — my sock and T-shirt drawers and my closet, where ev…

It was during the 1950s era — however, even today, those sweet memories of my teenage years still flow through my mind, like the aroma of home-baked bread.

It is always interesting to me when parents allow counter culture or extremism teachings to be taught to their child but balk at the mainstream ones.

There are 19 nursing homes within a 25-mile radius of one of the most beautiful county courthouses in our great country. The Ellis County Courthouse was built from architectural plans created by J. Riely Gordon. The building incorporates the Richardsonian Romanesque architectural style origi…

As we barrel into another year likely to be wilder and crazier than the one to which we just said goodbye, there are a couple of folks I don’t want any of us to forget. Given society’s knack for unparalleled distractions from what truly matters, it’s easy to get lost in those distractions an…

It is the start of a new year. The older we all get, we come to realize that time goes by so fast.  Remember when you were growing up, how time just seemed to drag along so slowly?

Somewhere near a nursing home in … southern Louisiana there is a crisis brewing in the sky as some of the first hurricane winds approach New Orleans. It looks like the devil himself ripped apart the sky with an old sugarcane machete and continuous sheets of water are pounding against one of …

Flowering and foliage plants can make welcome gifts; however, taking proper care of them determines how long they remain attractive and enjoyable.

We are saying goodbye to another year soon and hello to a new start. A fresh calendar to mark up with schedules to keep and all those important things to do.

This time of year, we all begin thinking about the new year and what changes we may want to make.  We all think to ourselves, “How can I make the new year the very best it can be?” We usually move on from there and just hope for the best.

Sundays have a different feel than the rest of the week. Weekdays have their own routine — the hassle of work and schedules, appointments and commitments. Sundays are slower.

In a school district, the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas is a magical one. We have class parties, holiday performances, making gifts for loved ones, writing letters to Santa, and many more exciting activities dreamed up by our amazing teachers.

Not sure about you, but it’s hard to believe Christmas is only days away. I swear it was just June and I was moaning about how hot it was and that Bama football couldn’t get here quick enough. Despite everything telling us otherwise, I still don’t think we understand how fast and fragile lif…

It’s nighttime, you’re driving down a small road in a rural part of Texas, and a car is approaching with their bright headlights beaming in your face.  You flash your lights from dim to bright as a signal that you can’t see.  As you move closer to each other — you squint, blink, wink, and tr…

On the first Christmas Eve, there were no brightly colored lights on anyone’s homes. There were no stockings that had been hung with care or any visions of sugarplums dancing in children’s heads. It was just another night in Bethlehem. The census had gone out—that command by Caesar that ever…

This morning, as I drop the second coffee pod in my magical coffee maker, my awakening mind is on Christmases past. The waiting, for a small child, was excruciating, but I knew there would be at least one new doll under the tree for me.

I love going to the movies. Matter of fact, my precious wife and I could very well qualify for the label of horror-movie junkies. Give me some over-priced nachos — better known as chips, cheese and jalapenos — a big drink, Sonya’s hand, a good horror flick and I’m happy. Weird, I know, but i…

On the road to my country estate (translate: my doublewide mobile home in the boonies) there is a large pasture beside a lovely ranch house where three beautiful rust and white longhorn cattle contentedly graze. Sometimes they pose by the fence for passersby to admire and sometimes they lay …

I’m having that dream again. I’m so cold. This little box I found to hide in doesn’t keep me dry in this cold rain. People walk by but not my people. I’m hungry, lost and confused. I’ve been wandering the streets for a long time.

Have you ever been completely blown away by someone’s generosity? Maybe you have or maybe you haven’t.  But I bet if you stop and think about it for a second, you’ll remember an occasion when someone did something for you, and you have never forgotten it.

I did not start celebrating Christmas when I first came into this world. My dad, who raised me alone, with occasional help from his family, was an atheist, and was just as fanatic about his non-belief in any religion as those who were devout believers. So, growing up in an apartment complex …
