They say "beauty is in the eye of the beholder," but I would like to challenge this statement and say that true beauty is actually very universal. It is universal in that most all people can see or recognize beauty that springs from the inside out. I've often marveled at the sight of a child [...]
I fully realize the recent Starbucks "Christmas" controversy is Internet contrived (and Christians aren't really up in arms about it), BUT I had to put my two cents in anyway--just in case anyone thought there was a war on Christmas going on at Starbucks.
I'm sitting on a comfortable sofa watching my kids have a dance party. I just finished a coffee made from my home espresso machine, and I type my opinions to a blog from an Apple computer. Every day I take advantage of things people all around the world could only dream of having. A roof [...]
Some time ago I saw a story about a well known family. A family with a lot of kids, you've probably heard of them....The Duggars.
