Philippians 4:8, “Finally brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.”
Whatever will you do today?
Paul’s remarkable words becomes even more remarkable when we remember the situation of his writing. Paul, under house arrest and facing his death, writes to Christian people living in the city of Philippi. Take a
Dwight Howard was lustily booed Wednesday night in Orlando – during the short video montage in his honor, and the player intros. Even Houston Rockets teammate Chandler Parsons said he would’ve booed if he was still sitting up in the stands. But the big fella hopes Magic fans will someday get over their anger regarding how things ended. Per the Orlando Sentinel:
Dwight at least sounded as if he has gained a conscience and a grown-up perspective, although he did plead for leniency before t
It grieves me to write for this Sunday morning that Phil and Don Everly are no longer a duo, at least here on terra firma.
On Friday, Phil passed in California at age 74 from obstructive pulmonary disease, leaving behind a musical legacy that is so entwined with his older brother it is as if both are now gone from our midst.
For me, Phil and Don Everly’s blend of voices was a harmonic convergence of the sacred and the secular. There is no way to prove this, but I believe the mysteries of
Based on the comments below my last column (Train Your Man, September 9, 2013), I seem to have caused quite a stir with my ideas about how to get your partner to “behave better.” It seems the people who commented in protest focused an awful lot on the attention-grabbing headline and had trouble seeing the big picture of what I was trying to point out.
My column originated from a clinical situation I observe all the time: People ask me what they can do to change their partners. My husband mos
More than a third of married women suspect their husbands of cheating, but fewer than four out of ten would end their marriage if it were confirmed, research shows.
A study has suggested that 36 per cent of women and 24 per cent of men were suspicious that their partner had been unfaithful.
The study, conducted by the law firm Slater & Gordon, also showed that many women routinely checked their partner’s phone, bank statements and email accounts looking for evidence of infidelity
TACOMA, Wash. -- To grasp the peace and dignity of Gregory Adams requires one to ask the unimaginable: What would you want to say to the hit-and-run driver who nearly killed you?
"Speaking directly to him, I'm gonna say 'God bless you'," Adams says.
On September 3, Adams was waiting for the light to turn "walk" to cross a south Tacoma crosswalk. He started walking, and that was the last thing he remembers.
The man who found him lying in the road, 50 feet from the impact, thought he was
Dear Neil: My husband left me four weeks ago. We have been married for two years, together for four, and have two children, ages 4 and 2. I was pregnant when we met, and am now 27 (he is 24). We have been fighting a lot, and he is often angry at me. Frequently he rages at me, and he's hit me several times.
But I'm not ready to give up on him, and I forgive him. I was sexually and physically abused as a child, and I consider him my best friend. So recently I gave him a gift: a picture of us w
Although the holidays are a hectic time, I always try to step back for a moment and reflect on what the year has brought. It is a time to count my blessings and appreciate all that I have in life -- a wonderful family, a fantastic group of people to work with, and good health (knock on wood!).
But recently, I was reminded of something else that is so important to a good life. As I sat and watched the celebration of life for Nelson Mandela on TV, it struck me how this man suffered so much, ye
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Nearly three decades after the murder that tore them apart, the mother and son talk easily now. They laugh over little things. She stands on tiptoes to hug him and whispers: "I love you." He smiles and hugs her back.
They often meet for lunch at the nonprofit where Gaile Owens works. On this day, she and Stephen sit side by side in a conference room, one glancing at the other as they answer a reporter's questions about their tangled past. About the killing of Stephen
The trial of Oscar Pistorius is dominating the headlines and brought with it much contention.
The South African athlete, a world-class Paralympian blade runner and the first ever double-amputee to participate in the Olympic Games, stands charged with the murder of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp - a world away from the glory of London 2012 less than a year.
Pistorius claims he shot her by accident, mistaking her for an intruder. The prosecution say he is a hotheaded killer who murdered hi
