  • Let's make the best of a brand new year

    In about a hundred hours the calendar will flip to a new year - 2008. Almost hard to believe, isn't it?

    But as we move ahead, we know that promises can be a dime a dozen. The ones we make that are worth carrying through are as scarce as a hen's teeth. But that doesn't mean we shouldn't try.

    We may have a few personal things that we're going to resolve in 2008 - trim a few pounds, stop smoking, get right with God, rekindle a friendship, or be a better mom or dad.

  • 'The Lord God made them all' ... Maggie,too

    "All things bright and beautiful,

    all creatures great and small,

    all things wise and wonderful:

    the Lord God made them all."

    -Cecil Frances Alexander

    from All Things Bright and Beautiful

    Cats are interesting creatures. I love their individual personalities and the "I will, but only because I want to," mentality they project. There's something comforting about a cat curling up on my lap in the evenings.
