Eyes of the Father: Salvation is about the message, not the messenger

For several weeks she'd been so close. She knew what sin was, she knew that it separated us from God and she knew that Jesus came to die for our sins. Yet she hadn't quite made the connection between Jesus dying for our sins and us needing to personally accept his sacrifice - and him as savior - in order to receive that forgiveness.

Off the Shelves: ‘Night Circus’ showcases a stylish spectacle, but sacrifices depth

I always felt October is a magical month: the transformation of the trees into the warm colors of autumn, the crisp breeze that is a much-needed salve to summer's heat. And my favorite holiday is just around the corner, a night of masquerade and treats make Halloween so much fun.

Wheeler: Healthy planting now will keep your tree thriving

Putting plants in the ground is something that I think we have all done in our lives. Most people get a sense of satisfaction by taking a bare flower bed or area and adding trees, flowers or shrubs.

Wine Without Pretense: Napa Valley has a competitor in Georgia

Eyes of the Father: A father's comforting embrace saves us from the darkness

We were visiting Amy's family in Texas. The girls had a sleepover at Amy's sister's place, leaving the men folk to fend for ourselves. We hunted down and killed our own dinner (we ordered a pizza). Then we sat around the campfire (the TV) and told stories of past hunts and tribal victories (we watched a movie). Then we all lay down and went to sleep in our various beds.

Wheeler: Composting: Greens, browns combine to form ‘black gold’

We are getting into the best of year with cooler weather and crisp days that give a bit of excitement because it feels like college football and fall festivals. Even though it is the end of the growing season, everything from plants to animals seems to enjoy a break from the oppressive heat.
