Putting Your Life on Hold

Mid-October of last year the secretary at my home church had to resign to take care of her very ill husband. And guess who the assistant secretary is that was called to fill in? Yep, that’s right, me. If all had of went as planned I was to undergo a couple of weeks of training before the “real” secretary resigned. Unfortunately, because of her husband’s rapid decline in health those two weeks was reduced to a one-day training period.

My knowledge of how the former secretary did…

Give Yourself Some...

Give yourself some credit. Credit for the things you do well. Yes, I’m talking to you- don’t look behind you. We all have things we’re good at. But how often do we say something like “oh that, it’s no big deal, anybody can do that, and then we go on to say how wonderfully talented somebody else is. We seem to…

The China Doll Blessing

As I drove down the road, the puzzled feeling remained. I was mentally going over the math. Over and over again. Always the same answer. I knew I would have to go back. I didn’t want to. We were finally on our way home. I was tired. The children were tired. You know what happens to tired children. I don’t really have to explain that here do I? But I knew them well. Hadn’t I been their closest companion since birth. They would realize that this…

In tough courses and top educational institutions of the world, research papers are often a strong case in making up overall grades of the students so they have to work really hard on them. Scientific research papers, if we talk about, are even more difficult. Their requirements are tough, they…

Are You Talking About It?

Are you talking about it…the stuff you love, the stuff that makes you happy and smile? Do you share what makes you happy with others as well? Do you take the time to really dwell on the great feelings just thinking about that stuff gives you; and it really does kind of give you a kind of “inner glow” that others…

The Secret Behind the Art of Painting the Past

 

Painters employ color, light, and shadow. Writers use small, standardized black marks set against a white background.  Yet these marks can inspire, condemn, evoke tears, laughter, anger, or regret. They can sweep a reader into a different reality, even bring a vanished time to life.  What is the secret of their power?…
