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.

Gardening with Wanda: Plants to make your garden come alive with fall color

To a gardener, this time of year brings on thoughts of autumn color in our landscape's flowers, shrubs and trees. There is nothing more pleasing to the eye than to look out over a canvas of yellow, oranges and deep reds.

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

Way back in 1976 a British wine exporter living in Paris decided to shake the trees. His name was Steven Spurrier (no, not the old ball coach) and what he did had a seismic impact on the wine world that reverberates today.

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.

Fall is time to plant pansies

As we get in to some cooler weather, I always get to thinking about fall flowers and how they add a little bit of color and life back to the garden after the long heat of summer.

Eyes of the Father: Forgiveness of debt is a show of grace

Cole had three plastic action figures. Chloe wanted them, but Cole had them first. As any lawyer will tell you, possession is 9/10ths of the law. However, to broker peace in the household, I asked Cole to share one of them with Chloe.
