  • One of the fondest memories of my childhood is that of my entire family sitting down almost every evening for a nice meal together.

  • National Trust for Historic Preservation says: Take a picture of a place that matters to you; win a digital camera and fame for your special place.

    Here’s an unusual offer. Most people have a place or places that are special to them. Maybe they are very old or have been in their family for many years. Maybe they have historic significance or there is some other factor of great interest.

    Too often places that matter to us can be lost in a heartbeat. The best way to save a place that matters is to call attention to it.

  • “Don’t worry about anything.” Philippians 4:6

    Forty percent of what we worry about never happens. Thirty percent already has happened. Twelve percent focuses on opinions or situations we can’t change. Ten percent on our health, which only worsens it. Eight percent concerns real problems we can’t influence. Think – 92 percent of our worries are needless.

    Worry comes from a Greek word meaning “to divide the mind.” Anxiety splits us right down the middle.
