As the years pass by and awareness grows, there are a flurry of articles, blogs, Facebook posts, and tweets reminding folks that Mother’s Day can be painful for women who long for children. There is compassionate content shared about those that are infertile or single, with gentle reminders that this day set aside to celebrate those whose dreams have been realized may find it difficult. As a woman who spent many years desiring to celebrate this day as a mama… Read more

Abby Johnson has faced her share of critics. People who support abortion rights don’t like it when anyone tells the truth about the killing of unborn human beings. They don’t like it when you talk about the baby’s heartbeat starting at 6 weeks. They don’t like it when you share about the disproportionate number of African American women who receive abortions. (Over  35% of all aborted babies are black. Right on par with Margaret Sanger’s eugenics efforts.) And they sure don’t… Read more

What happened in New York has gotten people talking and acting. That is a good thing. But you need to know that NY is not alone in their outrageous abortion allowances. Every state allows abortion, and 8 states plus DC have no prohibitions. In fact, the remaining states allow exceptions for health. And health is not defined – physical or mental health concerns of any kind are acceptable reasons. Abortions are disproportionally obtained by poor, minority women. Yet, abortion is celebrated… Read more

My mother usually waits until the epiphany before she starts un-decorating from Christmas. With the way my parents go all out in their decorating, this is a big job – carefully removing 50-year old ornaments from the tree, packing up four decades of Christmas books, wrapping each Christmas dish and glass…all before my brother carries boxes and tubs up the rickety attic stairs to be stored for another year. My family never looked forward to putting all these treasures away…. Read more

11 For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. 12 And this will be the sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger.” 13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying: 14 “Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!” (Luke 2:11-14) May you know the peace that can only come… Read more

O little town of Bethlehem, how still we see thee lie. Above thy deep and dreamless sleep, the silent stars go by. Yet in thy dark street shineth the everlasting light. The hopes and fears of all the years are met in thee tonight. While in Israel a few ago, we sang this popular hymn while standing in the cave where Jesus Christ was born. I can hear it now: “Wait a minute: Jesus was born in a stable!” Well, yes… Read more

Happy Holidays! Hope that doesn’t offend you. After all, it’s been a common expression for many decades. Take, for example, this 1942 hit, written by Irving Berlin and performed by the beloved Bing Crosby. Mr. Crosby was encouraging folks to come stay at Holiday Inn, where they might find relaxation, peace, quiet, comfort, and rest. Doesn’t that sound nice? Since the Inn was only open on holidays, he was referring to all holidays when singing this hit song. But how… Read more

I recently heard a version of this joke: A well to do businessman was rushing home from a late Christmas Eve meeting when he realized he had not yet purchased a gift for his wife. He ran into the nearest department store, raced up to the perfume counter, and asked for a reasonably priced bottle of perfume. The sales clerk brought out a lovely $50 bottle of perfume to which the husband responded that while it was really nice, he… Read more

It was my mother’s birthday. Well, technically, it was the day after her birthday, but it was the day we were celebrating. I called my “baby” sister and asked her to gather the family in the den – in the back of the house so that they couldn’t peek out the front window when I arrived. I nervously pulled into the driveway, thankful it had been re-paved and was no longer as bumpy as Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride. I opened… Read more
