My Fran Mrs. Frances Hines I thought that I was finished writing obituaries.  In the last ten years, I have lost too many people and had decided to stop writing about those losses; but this is different, Fran was different. Fran lived a very full life, and most people would say a long enough...

Truncated “If you had known who I am, then you would have known who my Father is. From now on you know him—and have seen him!” ~ John 14: 7~ Many years ago, I took a correspondence course, offered through my denomination; the classes were held, at the church I was a member of. ...

Evil is not the Answer   I would like to write about the bittersweet moment this morning, of going to my container garden, and harvesting Cuban oregano, and tomatoes, to complete the Johnny Marzetti, I am making for dinner. Yes, it was wonderful to reap such abundance; but it made me sad to pick...
