I was walking to my classroom the other day and, as I passed by another room, a young lady asked if I would step inside. She looked at one of the other students and said, "Ask him."

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - It takes courage to stand up for justice

If you're a golfer, you're likely to be familiar with the name Lee Trevino, the "Merry Mex" and "Supermex" who made his living playing professional golf for many years. In a television documentary several years ago, the commentator told about Trevino's efforts to get on the PGA tour as a young "nobody," noting the difficulty of getting past the credentials committee's reluctance to accept him because of his assumed inexperience. There was also the issue of Lee's Mexican heritage.

Bulloch History with Roger Allen - Did Spanish, French or English first discover Georgia?

Kathy Bradley - Make my eggs anything but over easy

They were just eggs. Ordinary eggs. Scrambled for breakfast, fried hard and slapped between two pieces of white bread with mayonnaise, broken into pound cake batter in fat gold globes. But once a year they were anything but ordinary.

John Bressler - Easter is over so now what?

Easter is over, now what? As a pastor, I remember the day after Easter when I would look at my calendar and think how quiet the church will be, for a week maybe, and I can catch up on some stuff I had put aside until after the celebration was over. The fact is that the world goes on, everyday problems still exist and if we relax too much, opportunities can pass us by quicker than the blink of an eye.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Happy kids get old-fashioned parenting

As the old parenting point of view fell out of fashion beginning in the late 1960s, the vernacular that accompanied it all but completely disappeared. Today's parents don't say to their children the sorts of things parents said to children in the 1950s and before, things like "You're acting too big for your britches again, young man."

Kathy Bradley - A mimosa in time

What is this? A mimosa tree? Its slender branches are curved in an arc out over the ditch. Its fingerling leaves are dangling over my head. Its barkless trunk is all but hidden among the grapevines and pine trees and scrub oaks. I have walked by this very spot hundreds of times, driven by it thousands of times. How could I have never noticed a mimosa tree?
