a matter of conscience

April 22nd, 2015 | Posted by Cathe Laurie
I don't think we need a theological, psychological, or philosophical degree to tell us why it is important to have a good conscience. We all know that small voice. In the Disney children's movie about Pinocchio, it was embodied in a small nagging insect named "Jiminy Cricket." It's that inward judge that monitors and that lives inside each of us. When we have done wrong it accuses us; when we have done well it approves of us. read more...

waiting for Christmas

December 11th, 2014 | Posted by Cathe Laurie
Most of us just hate waiting. I know I do, and Greg hates waiting even more! He often reminds me, "Early is on time, on time is late, and late is unacceptable." One thing is for sure: all kids hate waiting for Christmas morning. Have you noticed that we actually do things to accentuate the fact that we are waiting? December drags on and on!
