  • Giving has a bigger impact than buying

    By the Rev. Karl Lusk

    The Black Friday ads are out in force. In fact, Black Friday sales started two weeks ago. It’s also worth noting that there are at least a dozen big box store chains that are not beginning Black Friday until Nov. 28 and will be closed on Thanksgiving Day to allow employees and families an opportunity for thankful time together. I’m thankful for their leadership in helping us focus on more important thoughts about happiness than shop until we drop.

    “I am sorry Ben. I didn’t mean to hurt you. I feel like crap.

    I love you and I was trying to hit Chris. I hate my choice I made. I rally (sic) hope you except (sic) my apollogee (sic). When I throo (sic) the sizzors (sic) I was aiming for Chris. I hope you start to feel better soon.”

  • Flinging our cares away

    When we moved to Florida from California 23 years ago, we did so with only the things we could fit into two vehicles.

    That meant getting rid of 15 years’ worth of possessions to start over, which was both sad and exciting.

    I especially hated parting with the coffee table my husband had accidentally autographed.

    He tends to write hard and had been signing checks. After that, at a certain angle you could see a half-dozen “Barry Kennedy” indentations in the table top.

  • Why do we pray?

    According to a recent LifeWay Research survey, when God answers prayer, he tends to do it in the South.

    Two times as many Southerners as people in the Northeast who pray say all of their prayers have been answered.

    Hmmm. I live in the South, and I’m here to tell you that the survey is hooey, at least if you judge by my “God answers my prayers” track record.
