  •  Several weeks ago, a friend and I were talking about ghosts in closets — things that people say they’ve forgiven and forgotten, but they really haven’t.

    We talked about how difficult it is for people to forgive, and wondered aloud if it’s even possible. Or, if it is possible — and it must be since God tells us to forgive others “just as in Christ God has forgiven (us)” and if he tells us to do something, he always makes a way to do it — is it possible to forget?

  •  Have you started the holiday shopping countdown yet? To avoid the end-of-the-year holiday crunch on your wallet, it is important to plan for holiday expenses through the year. Also, it is important to realize that Christmas is not the only expensive holiday within the next three months.

    Halloween ranks as the third most expensive holiday, following Christmas and Valentine's Day. This might surprise some people, since typically the holiday does not involve large gift-giving or family events. Nonetheless, the price of costumes, candy and decorations can add up.

  •  Who would be better to turn to for advice on living the Christian life than the Apostle Paul?

    Paul told the Corinthians, “Be an imitator of me, just as I am an imitator of Christ” (I Corinthians 11:1).

    He said in Philippians 1:21, “For me to live is Christ ….”

    In II Timothy 4:7 he says as he comes to the end of his life, “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the course, I have kept the faith.”

  •  Having the flu can be hard for anyone but it is extra risky for people with diabetes. Diabetes can weaken your body’s ability to fight the flu virus.

    Being sick can raise your blood glucose and keep you from eating properly. You are also at risk of flu-related problems like pneumonia. So for people with diabetes, the flu can mean longer illness. It can mean being put in the hospital or even death.

    Ways to prevent the flu

    • Get a flu shot every year as soon as it is offered each fall.

  •  Absentee voting
