Marijuana produces a carefree state of mind and the illusion that senses are extra sharp. In reality, you are more likely to be preoccupied with unusual thoughts or visions than your responsibilities as a driver.

One of the last reports that came out showed that at least 17 percent of…
Recently Lydia, who attempts to maintain proper sentence structure to the blogs, related that research regarding bloggers reveals that they like information regarding synthetic marijuana. If that is the case how many bloggers are still active users? Are non-using recovering people blogging about details associated with various drugs which would only increase the desire or cravings to use?
Saying the words, “synthetic marijuana”, remind me of something one of my favorite aunts said to me 40 years ago. I had just got married and she sent a card with a gratefully needed financial gift. Within the card she related the…Continue Reading This Post ->
Jesus: “When an evil spirit leaves a person, it goes into the desert, seeking rest but finding none. Then it says, ‘I will return to the person I came from.’ So it returns and finds its former home empty, swept, and in order.

That will be the experience of this evil generation.” (Matthew: 12:43-45)

Most of us associate the holiday with happy Pilgrims and Indians sitting down to a big feast. And that did happen – once.
The story began in 1614 when a band of English explorers sailed home to England with a ship full of Patuxet Indians bound for slavery. They left behind smallpox which virtually wiped out those who had escaped. By the time the Pilgrims arrived in Massachusetts Bay they found only one living Patuxet Indian, a man named Squanto who had survived slavery in England and knew their language. He taught them to grow corn and to fish, and…

Hebrews 9:27: It is determined for a person to die once and after that to face the judgment….
A week ago in the early hours of Thursday morning my mother phoned me with the news that her husband of 40 plus years, my stepfather, Eldon Rogers, had died that morning. Each life and each death affords a mirror and/or a comparison/contrast. My initial thoughts were to be present and supportive of my mother. Afterwards, I was able to consider how Mr. Eldon had enriched my life and what may be said in the funeral that would transpire the upcoming weekend.
