The Last Page -- a "punny" story

April 1960 Oh, it feels so good, Paige giggled with delight. Finally, I was chosen. She paused briefly and then added, I wonder what it will feel like. It didn’t take long for Paige’s wonderings to be realized. She was placed in a pitch-dark place. There’s no room to turn around, it’s so cramped in... Sign in to see full entry.

The Fragile Esteem of Teenagers

I turn sixty this month. It's getting harder and harder to remember my teen years. I realize that can be a blessing; or times it is a hindrance.

A verse of a hymn we sang today: "Hosanna in the highest!" that ancient song we sing for Christ is our Redeemer, the Lord of heaven our King. O may we ever praise him with heart and life and voice, and in his blissful presence eternally rejoice." It was a joyous Sunday. Sign in to see full entry.

Another Good Book

During January I spent most of my time in the recliner and reading. I won't bore you with the reason in the recliner, but I want to share with you one of the books I read. Andy Andrews wrote The Noticer and I found it absolutely inspiring. Although it is fiction, it holds a great deal of truths and... Sign in to see full entry.

Ah,, Money

Ah, money! It is something we need to pay our bills, buy our needs, and plan for our future. However, we often find that ourselves enslaved to money rather managing the money.
