Senior volunteers play vital role

Dear Editor: For more than 40 years, the three Senior Corps programs – RSVP, Foster Grandparents and Senior Companions – have engaged age 55-plus volunteers in service to meet critical needs. Last year more than 500,000 Senior Corps volunteers provided 98 million hours of service estimated to be worth more than 2 billion dollars.

Life is nothing without dreams

I'm a dreamer. This is not to say that I'm goal-oriented or enterprising, words that would far better suit my husband. When I say I'm a dreamer, I mean I can spend five hours of my day researching a weekend getaway to Paris. I'll get price quotes on flights, rental cars and hotels. I'll plan what sights I'd like to see, from the Eiffel Tower to the Louvre, and what restaurants I'd like to dine in. (So far, I'm partial to Le Buisson Ardent, I think.)

How to rejoice in suffering

One of the least-popular requirements of Christianity is the act of suffering. In his letter to the church at Philippi, Ch.1:29, the Apostle Paul puts it very plainly, "For it has been granted to you that for the sake of Christ you should not only believe in Him but also suffer for His sake."

News of deaths is good Southern gossip

Yes, I know that I am, occasionally, prone to embellishment. But trust me when I say this is the law and the gospel: I have a longtime friend who only calls me when someone dies. Most times, I know the person, but sometimes I don't have a clue the person ever existed.

Actions speak louder than words

The other day, I was watching the news when a political ad featuring the politician came across my TV screen. He told what he believed and what he would do if elected. Immediately, I thought, "I wonder if his past voting record in politics mirrored what he was saying."
