Eyes of the Father: Do we have God or does God have us?

We were on vacation at the beach last summer and went swimming at the hotel's swimming pool. I don't know about you, but there seems to be something wrong with that. If you're at the beach, why are you swimming in a pool? In spite of the warped logic, that's where we were.

The times they are a-changing, yet again

I have never particularly liked change. Perhaps one of the worst days of my young life was when I entered the eighth grade. After attending Appling Elementary School for seven years and being taught by only four teachers for that entire time, I was petrified at the thought of moving on up to Harlem High with six teachers for the eighth grade alone.

‘Love Virtually’ is a new take on fantasy vs. reality

While the Internet allows us access to information and communication worldwide, it is arguable it has also contaminated our ability to interact with others in person. The Internet is a place where we can choose to remain anonymous, and even create imaginative alter-egos. Thus we can live out secret fantasies, speak openly without negative repercussions and share private friendships, even romances, with people that may or may not be what they claim.

So many spring growing questions, and so little time

What is that yellow plant that's so pretty right now? What's the name of those trees that bloom so early every year? Why doesn't my camellia bloom as profusely as my neighbors'? Why do my azaleas bloom in early April while my sister's bloom in May?

Around the Home: Wasting food is wasting money, so follow these tips

We throw away 14 percent of the food bought in the U.S. That adds up to about $1,000 to $2,000 a year for an average family of four (The range depends on whether the family uses a thrifty food plan or a more liberal one, and is based on September 2008 food prices).

Eyes of the Father: Forgiveness isn’t easy, but it’s a path to grace

Dixie Divas: What happened to NASCAR

Since I once called the garage area of the NASCAR Cup Series "home," working in the sport for several years as one of few women among hundreds of men, folks often ask my opinion on today's NASCAR.

‘Left Neglected’ neglects appeal and originality

One of the things I love about writing book reviews is I can encourage people to pick up a literary treasure they would have passed over or never heard about. That is why I feel a little disappointed I'm essentially telling readers not to bother with this week's novel. And it is particularly disappointing that it is from an author whose first novel was such a success and so highly praised.

Follow the Preacher’s advice on gardening

"To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted." These words were spoken and recorded many centuries ago by one referred to as the Preacher. Of course, they are found in the Old Testament book of Ecclesiastes.
