On Aging with Dr. Roger Branch Sr.: Visiting the past -- Holidays

When it comes to holidays, seniors are not the only ones who visit the past. If asked about memories most people would mention Christmas - from time spent with favorite people to the smell and taste of rich food and to presents. There is a lot of variation in the content because family tradition and location define what people do, what they treasure. Regardless of differences, many Christians and others delight in Christmas.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Bad dreams -- Take a wait-and-see slant

Q: Our 5-year-old has suddenly started waking up with nightmares. He's not able to describe them with any clarity, however, so we don't know what the content of them is. The most he's able to tell us is that there are scary people chasing him. He began having them about a month ago and has had maybe 20 since. They usually occur about three hours after we tuck him in.

Kathy Bradley: A different kind of Christmas tree

There are fewer and fewer leaves on the sycamore tree each day. More and more sky showing through the satin-smooth branches. Its neighbors in the backyard - two saw-tooth oaks - are disrobing at a slightly slower rate, but they, too, are approaching nakedness. When the wind picks up, the trees sway and rattle, wiggle and rustle, like a little girl in a crinoline. An irritated liveliness. A frustrated animation.

They had begged him for healing and Jesus told them to go to the priests, the miracle taking effect as they obeyed him. The sad conclusion to the story is shared by Luke.
