Children don’t change, and neither do English teachers

I was on the phone with my sister this week. We usually talk at least once a week unless either of us feels very strongly about a Jeopardy question or answer and has to call the other about it. Then we talk more often. We especially like to brag if we knew final Jeopardy and none of the contestants knew it.

The beauty of oak trees

I am sure most of you saw the picture in The Covington News of the large tree limb which fell into Floyd Street recently. The limb is gone and so is the tree and another large tree that was in the same yard. Every time I drive down Floyd Street and pass where those trees were I get a jolt. It just doesn't look right. It's like buying a new piece of furniture. Every time you enter the room that piece of furniture jumps out at you. The empty space where those trees were just jumps out at ...

The baffling, neverending search for missing laundry

I have a picture that sits on a dresser in my bedroom that no one ever sees. It serves as the repository for odd socks. When I am folding laundry and if I find an odd sock, it goes over the picture. Sometimes, I actually find matches in the socks hung over the picture frame.

More exhausting: a soccer player or soccer grandmother?

My younger Macon granddaughter spent the week with me. It was exhausting for both of us. She had to be across the road from Parkview High School at 8 a.m. each morning. My alarm went off at 6 a.m. and I woke my granddaughter 15 minutes later. The 15 minutes gave me time to get the paper, drink a cup of tea and read the headlines.

Letting go of Mr. Lenin

How tightly do you hold on to things? I'm not talking about holding on to handrails. Everyone knows you should hold on tightly to handrails, especially in stairwells where the fluorescent bulbs are always flickering, and the stair treads are made out of those slippery glazed tiles that are like walking on ice. No, what I mean is, "How tightly do you hold on to personal possessions?" This can include all kinds of knickknacks, mementos, you name it. You don't have to admit to being a full-blown hoarder, but many of us have a tough time letting go ...

Introducing Faith Community Church

I would like to introduce you to Faith Community Church. As I prayed about where to launch a new work for God, He began showing me the needs in Newton County and the surrounding areas. With over 101,000 people in Newton, I found out that only 41 percent of the population was active in a church family. Together, with the help of others, we decided to help more people find a church home where they can connect honestly with God, connect with others in genuine friendship and connect to our community.

Hitting home

I went to have my annual physical recently. I could remember the words the doctor wanted me to, and I was able to name a good many animals when he asked me to name as many as I could in two minutes. In fact, he said I tied for the most animals named with one of his other patients. So I guess my mind is still OK.
