Good morning everyone, How much do you spend on someone’s Christmas gift? That depends, doesn’t it? For the person who delivers your newspaper, it might be a $10 gift card for McDonalds. For a husband or wife or child, it could be much more. After all, we know them better. We have a strong bond…

Good morning everyone, It’s called “irrational exuberance.” It means being overly optimistic and joyful when there is no reason for it. It’s sliding off an icy highway into a snowy ditch and telling your wife, “This is great!” It’s having more chores, assignments, or appointments added to an already packed week, and telling a friend,…

Good morning everyone: Maybe you’ve seen it. In the wake of the latest mass shooting, the bold headline in the New York Daily News states: “God isn’t fixing this!” The paper goes on to condemn those who offer prayers as substituting meaningless platitudes for concrete action. We know, of course, that God is almighty and…

Good morning everyone, Christmas is coming! It’s hardly surprising, late-breaking news. Who doesn’t know that? Long before black Friday, stores were promoting Christmas sales. Decorations have been up around town for weeks. Christmas songs are everywhere on the radio. Everyone knows it’s coming, but what does this pre-Christmas season really mean? For some it’s a…

Good morning everyone, “Is this all there is?” Think of how often you hear that. You could be at an all-you-can-eat buffet with dozens of menu items from which to choose, and there will still be someone who says, “Is this all?” A child might have a closet full of toys and games, an adult…

Good morning everyone: “Where’s God?” No doubt many are asking that again in the wake of the tragic terrorist attacks in Paris yesterday. People are quick to lay the blame at God’s doorstep. “If He really exists, if He really cares, and if He is really all-powerful, He would do something. Better yet, He wouldn’t…

Good morning everyone, About a year ago I was curious about government healthcare options. I went to the website and compared a few plans and didn’t do anything more. Shortly afterwards, I received the first of many emails encouraging me to sign up and warning that the deadline was quickly approaching. Each subsequent email used…

Good morning everyone, Are you sure? Are you sure you locked the house and closed the garage door before you left for work? Are you sure that the vitamins and supplements you’re taking at breakfast are good for you? Are you sure that you have a solid plan for retirement? We want to be sure…

Good morning everyone, When you looked in the mirror this morning, what did you see—pillow-flattened hair and bleary eyes? But beyond that, what did you see, what kind of person? How is your “self-image”? All of us, of course, want a positive self-image, but where does it come from? Sometimes people try to find it…

Good morning everyone, The description on Amazon says: “one-size-fits-all,” but when I read that, I usually take it to mean that whatever it is will not really fit anyone well. The cap may fall down around one person’s ears, but will pinch my head. The fingers on the glove will likely not be nearly long…
