How’s it going?

posted by Ruth Graham

I have been off line for several days. It’s sort of nice to have to do things the “old fashioned” way. It’s hard to remember a time when we didn’t have the Internet and e-mail.

Last time we talked about making resolutions. How’s it going? Have you been able to keep them? Have some fallen by the wayside? Have you shrugged them off?

Let’s be transparent here! I will tell you that I made several resolutions: to exercise at the health and fitness center; to have my devotional time first thing, not watch the weather and news.

Well, I have had a bad sinus infection which has drained me of all energy and made me feel quite yucky. So I have given myself a pass on exercise – although I do some stretching in the morning. We have had such variable weather that I gave myself permission to check it out when I go to the kitchen to get my tea. Then I go back to my chair to have devotions.

I don’t feel like I have failed – just delayed things.

How are you doing?

In recent years there has been discussion about a "war on women". I am not sure what that means. Perhaps it started with a woman's right over her own body, her right to choose.

Who am I and why am I here?
Back in the 1960s - 19870s there was this "youth revolution". Young people were questioning authority, rejecting authority...many of these youth we labeled, "hippies". They  threw over the conventional and traditional to come up with their own "relative" truth. I suppose each generation has their o

O.T. God vs. N.T. God
A friend recently asked me how I reconcile the vengeful, war-like God of the Old Testament with the meek mild Jesus. That is a question that has come through the ages. On the surface it does look like it is almost two different Gods. The God of the Old Testament does rain fire down on sinners. He do

Forgive Again and Again and Again
I am sure you have experienced many occasions when someone has hurt you. Depending on the relationship with that person the hurt was a deep wound or you brushed it off. The ones we can brush off are easier to forgive. Like a friend who is late for an appointment, or a child draws on your freshly pai

Good and Evil
The contrast between evil and good has been in the news and on our front pages this week. It was a thrill to see Dr. Brantley on the news yesterday as he left Emory University Hospital hand in hand with his wife. It is a miracle that he is alive and expected to live a full life. Ebola is a deadly
