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?

It was for this reason that of all th

Easter or Christmas?
How many of you have heard it said, "Easter is them most important date on the Church calendar"? I know I have. But it bothers me. How can we make a value judgment? You can't have Easter without Christmas. And Christmas would be meaningless without Easter. Oh, we could argue that Jesus was a good

Skipping Spring!
We had 5" of snow last Sunday and this Sunday it was 60+ degrees. It's like having whiplash! Last year we had a very early Spring...this year it is very late. Soon it will be 85 degrees - it seems we go from winter to summer, skipping Spring. And it amazes me that while there is thick snow coveri

When You Can't Sleep
I woke up early this morning. Too early. Too early to get up but too late to go back to sleep. So I just lay in bed thinking....then I began to fret - worry - about what all I needed to do and the fact I didn't think I had gotten enough sleep. I am sure you know the feeling! Frustrating. Maddening.
