Inauguration Day!

Mr. Obama took the oath of office yesterday, privately. Today it will be public amidst pomp and pageantry.  Let us pause and pray for this man. He has been placed in this office by God. “But God is the Judge; […]

Lance Armstrong

Earlier this week I wrote about the desire that we all want to be fully known and understood. It was prompted by Jodie Foster’s comment at the Golden Globes. Many of us live in fear that if we are known […]

General Petraeus and When Giants Fall

posted by Ruth Graham

I posted this to my other blog this morning and thought I would share it here. Let’s not forget to pray for the General and his family. We may never get the true story. I find it suspect that this […]

What Happened to Confession?

posted by Ruth Graham

Perseverance
I have been away because my computer died. As in DEAD. NADA. GONE. So discouraging and so aggravating. Now I am trying to learn a new computer and the one program I used the most changed! I am frustrated with the changes! I don't have time to ...

Gardening
With the warm weather we are having here in Virginia, it makes me get itchy to get in the yard.  Garden catalogues are arriving each day. Seeds are on sale in the store...The daffodils are peeking up - as is my hope. All hopeful signs of ...
