On January 26, 1905, in Pretoria, South Africa, Captain M.F. Wells found a diamond weighing one and one quarter pounds.  Two years later, the diamond was purchased and presented to King Edward VII of the United Kingdom.  In 1908, a diamond cutter from Amsterdam cut from the diamond, the star of Afri...

Like millions of Americans this week, my mind is on the Fourth of July holiday and what it represents: our freedom as a nation. This freedom is a precious thing

Father’s day brings a lot of emotions to men in many different ways. Some of us have had good, bad and some may have never known their dad. It’s a time of dinners, picnics, getting together or even tractor rides. A day to celebrate our dad, embracing our own kids and some for some of us, our grandch...

In 1914, President Woodrow Wilson officially proclaimed Mother’s Day a national holiday to be held on the second Sunday of May.

We stand on the threshold of a new year. Most people generally look at the new year as a fresh beginning, as an opportunity to kind of start over, to overcome a habit, or do a better job of something they see as important and that needs improvement. It may be parenting, being a better spouse, losing...

“Give thanks to the Lord for He is good” Ps. 107:1

To a non-Christian, it means a vacation from work - a holiday.  It is a chance to get together with good friends or family, watch ball games, and enjoy good food.

To the Merchant, it signals the official beginning of the Christmas season, his busiest...

Praise God with resounding cymbals; praise God with loud clanging cymbals

Let everything that has breath praise the Lord, Hallelujah!

We could conclude from the last few c...

When you think about July 4th what comes to mind?

Perhaps you think about a day off from work with picnics, fireworks, and those red, white, and blue flags displayed in front yards along your neighborhood streets.

This is all good, but the one word that comes to my mind is freedom.

It is a fact that we...

I was thinking about Father’s Day that we will celebrate later this month and the word “Dadisms” came to my mind..... Dadisms are dad's favorite lines said in typical style and tone to teach us basics of life. Howsoever hard sounding Dadisms may be, they go a long way to teach us invaluable lessons...

Mothers are teachers. Mothers are disciplinarians. Mothers are cleaning ladies. Some mothers are gardeners & mowers of lawns. And most mothers understand that baking cookies is more important than washing windows, too.

Mothers are nurses & doctors & psychologists & counselors & chauffeurs & coaches....

The Christian faith is simple:   What you see is what you get.  See Jesus as the Savior, and you get salvation.  Do not see Jesus as the Savior, and you are left in the same desperate situation as you were before.

“Just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son...

Do you remember playing hide and seek as a child?  In my neighborhood it was the “game of choice”.  Were you good at the game?  Hide and seek pros usually hid in the sneakiest places and whoever as “it” had a tough time finding them.  In fact, if you were really good at hide and seek you may not get...
