Where were you?

We pause today to remember the tragedy of 9/11 and to honor those who gave the ultimate sacrifice of their life that day.  I also think about those who have given their time, service, life or loved one in this war that we are still fighting.   I pray for their families.  That somehow they could find . . . → Read More: Where were you?

Why I won’t see the movie “Change Up”

To be completely fair and honest, I had not even heard of this movie until today.  But then, I tend to get behind on movies while I watch old classics on Netflix.  However, I followed a link from someone else and came across this blog post.  If you were even considering going to see the movie . . . → Read More: Why I won’t see the movie “Change Up”

The military does not cause poverty

This may not be a popular post, but I feel like writing it, so bear with me while I express my opinion.

A while back I saw a petition going around for people to sign trying to get free internet for deployed soldiers.  As people sign, they can also leave a comment.  I had trouble accepting . . . → Read More: The military does not cause poverty

What happened to personal responsibility?

This morning I was listening to a local Christian radio station when I heard something from one of the DJs that bothered me.  He was discussing the Atlanta public school cheating scandal.  If you are unfamiliar with it, here is a quote from the article I just linked to:

Tornadoes in North Carolina

The plural version of tornado just looks funny to me with that “e” in there, but evidently it’s correct. 


We’ve had a tornado scare before when we were living in Texas, but this time we had one much closer to home.  As most of you know, the Fayetteville/Fort Bragg area was hit hard with tornadoes this . . . → Read More: Tornadoes in North Carolina

What would you miss?

I read this story this morning about 97 military families losing their household goods due to a warehouse fire in Germany.  I can’t stop thinking about them.  These are families that are currently in transition from one home to the next.  They are starting a new life in a new place, a new country.  Now they . . . → Read More: What would you miss?

“Do it again, Lord” (Remembering 911)

As written (and copied with permission) by Max Lucado:

Dear Lord,

We’re still hoping we’ll wake up. We’re still hoping we’ll open a sleepy eye and think, What a horrible dream.

But we won’t, will we, Father? What we saw was not a dream. Planes did gouge towers. Flames did consume our fortress. People did perish. It . . . → Read More: “Do it again, Lord” (Remembering 911)

Don’t Forget! The war is not over!

I’m sure you’ve heard by now that many of the troops are being moved out of Iraq.  Please, for the sake of all those that are left, don’t misinterpret this as the war being over. It’s not.

I couldn’t write this any better, so please take the time to read this post by an army wife.  Then . . . → Read More: Don’t Forget! The war is not over!
