You would think that life would have the decency to slow down during Lent, wouldn't you? After all, isn't this the time of year we should all be spending extra time in prayer and devotion? And yet, here we are coming up on Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday and Good Friday - Lent is pr...

Finally! April has arrived! Of course, along with the arrival of April, we also get April Fools Day. This year, I decided to look up the origin on April Fool's Day (turns out it was a pretty foolish thing to do). Apparently, April Fool's Day is "celebrated" in mo...

Many moons ago, I was part of a group that got together each week, usually on Friday evenings, for Bible study and prayer. The group also planned and organized other activities - dinners, shows, parties - I even remember a canoe trip once (don't ask any questions ...

There's a fairly good-sized piece of furniture in my living room that, most of the time, I forget is there. It was something I wanted very badly about ten years ago and I was so happy when someone was looking to re-home their piano. I thought for SURE I'd pick up exactly where I ...

It's the same thing every year. March arrives and my first thought is "FINALLY! WINTER IS JUST ABOUT OVER!" You would think I'd have learned my lesson long ago. We're almost a week into the month now, and so far we've had several snow storms, the temperature is hovering in the ...

This morning I happened to look across the street and noticed hundreds of Canadian geese just hanging out together on Solly's field. They all looked very content and happy. With absolutely no warning, no fanfare, and for no particular reason (at least none that I was aware of)...

Many, if not most, animal lovers know what it's like to have to make the tough decision to let your beloved pet go to doggy or kitty (or whatever-else) heaven. I once had a cat that was a stray my sister found. She begged me to take him. And he was a pretty cat, but I guess ...

Talk about an unpleasant reminder of the world we live in! This week, Lou Lescas (our Administrator) and I attended a half day seminar entitled "Bucks County Safety and Security Symposium for Faith-Based Organizations." We were told at the start of the symposium that 95 differ...
