Good morning: Last fall I wanted to sell a car, and several prospective buyers came to see it. They looked at the color, inspected the paint for chips, and checked out the climate controls and entertainment system. Eventually, though, they all wanted to look under the hood. It’s something we ordinarily don’t see or even…

<pre>Good morning: He is the nicest, kindest person I’ve ever met. He is grouchy, impatient, and often mean. Do you know people like that? Sometimes both descriptions might fit a single individual. One moment they are caring and considerate and the next they are looking for a fight. It leaves one wondering who the person…

Good morning: The Bible warns that Satan is a liar and the father of lies. He lied to Eve in the garden of Eden, which led to sin and death and the need for a Savior. The devil still spreads lies with devastating effect, one of which is: “You don’t need other believers.” Has someone…

Good morning: Do you recognize the name Pat Tillman? He played in the NFL in the late 1990s for the Arizona Cardinals. But his name became headline news for something else.

Good morning: With Christmas, timing is everything. Remember in July when Christmas seemed so distant? Already then experts were advising people to get their shopping done early to avoid supply chain snafus and disappointment. Did you tell yourself at Thanksgiving that there was plenty of time to get cards sent and make travel plans? A…

Good morning: Someone would have to be living in the middle of a remote wilderness to not know what time of year this is. The signs of the Christmas season are everywhere. Drive down the street and you see homes lit up with multi-colored lights. Communities display large, decorated trees in prominent public places. Every…

Good morning: “Just wait.” It may be the last thing you want to hear, especially at this time of year. We’re not good at waiting. What child enjoys waiting to open presents? After watching the first episode of a new Netflix series, are you content to wait? Or do you immediately binge-watch the entire series…

Messiah Family, In my childhood years, I remember the excitement and anticipation of Christmas coming once Thanksgiving was past.
