  • Dealing with change can be hard

    Last year we became quasi-temporary guardians of our youngest daughter’s two cats, Mohawk and Target.

    I say quasi-temporary because the daughter has since moved out after staying with us for a year, but the cats are still with us.

    Once our daughter left, we decided to move the cats’ litter box from the guest bathroom to the now-empty spare bedroom.

    To us humans, that’s a simple change, but not to the cats.

  • Mom sees uncanny resemblance between husband and her baby

    By Roger Alford

    I love the story of the woman who was admiring her friend’s newborn baby.

    “He sure favors his dad,” the woman said.

    “Oh, yes, he surely does,” the new mom said. “He sleeps all the time, never talks and has no hair.”

    It’s only natural that children look like their parents. In some instances, the resemblance is uncanny. Sometimes, they act alike. And sometimes they even sound alike.

  • Did you know ... ?

    While both Catholics and Protestants receive the Eucharist, the meaning behind the Eucharist varies depending on a person’s faith.

    To Protestants, the Eucharist is only a symbol of grace and the sacrificial nature of the Eucharist is rejected. Catholics believe the bread and wine, once consecrated during mass, becomes the body and blood of Christ.
