A well thought out, meticulously maintained park. Keith owns and operates a nursery and landscaping business in Manhattan, Kansas. Sheri works hard and thinks wisely. Their combined effor...

Weight

All of us carry it around. Some unwanted and trying to figure out a place for it to take residency while others desire to add pounds to the personal mass to bulk up, add muscle, to be bigger and stronger. I have a good friend who says that he used to lift weights, but he quit because "those things are heavy!"Although a barbell loaded with circular, donut-shaped objects on...

Minor Adjustment

The floor lamp positioned near the chair I sit in every morning flickered on and off from time to time for several weeks. I learned that a gentle shake of the lamp usually brought the light back on after things had gone dark. I was delaying the replacement of the switch in the lamp. My dad was a trained electrician.

When She Reached for His Cloak, She Touched His Heart

When she reached for His cloak she touched His heart. His response differed radically from the doctors she had visited during the past dozen years. She continued to suffer while her condition deteriorated. They offered no solutions as they continued to demand payment. Desperation drove her through the crowd to Jesus. She had no money. She had no place to worship. She lived...

Good Times

GOOD TIMES Do you remember the show? The sitcom that aired for six seasons from 1973-1979 and featured Jimmie "J.J." Walker also known as "Kid Dyn-o-mite." Another one of my favorites was watching Arthur Fonzarilli on Happy Days. Anyone who could hit a jukebox and make it play music was at the top of my cool list.
