Well, Let Me Say This About That
Royal Recap

As a child, it was obvious to me that weddings and funerals are the great ceremonies of life. Even long-suffering Annie in Imitation of Life used her last moments on her deathbed to talk (whisper, really) about her funeral and Miss Suzie’s wedding. When it came to weddings, I remember…

The 701 Club
NRA, DEA & HRH

We must bond together as one in prayer of these things. To the letter! NRA. Once again, Brothers and Sisters, we are faced with a tragic school shooting. This time in my home state of Texas. I shall be in prayerful anticipation of how the fine Christian gun owners of Texas…

For Your Viewing Pleasure

Watching television has never been better. That may come as a surprise to those of you who claim that “I don’t really watch much television.” But if you’re not spending your leisure time re-reading The Red and the Black or the complete works of Marcel Proust, you probably know what…

Prophecy, Paradise & Playing

Allow me to comment on the moving of the Lord’s hands in our world today. Prophecy. Many vociferous pastors of the faith are always quick to righteously decry the Jewish religion. Yet here they are in Jerusalem offering prayers of praise and alleged support of Israel. How does this happen? Let…

Is That All There Is?

I must have been around 12 or 13 the first time I heard Peggy Lee’s classic Is That All There Is? Why a precocious boy would develop an affinity for this song about disillusionment is best left to the professionals, I suppose. But at the time, it replaced These Boots…

Snap, Crackle & Pop

I need to get this column written in a hurry. Any minute now, there should be a callback from my doctor about getting in this afternoon on an urgent basis. For about a week now, my neck snaps, crackles and pops as if an entire box of Rice Krispies were…

Queens, Quaaludes & Quips

I have been away for a week of personal reflection. However, the world spins forward as evidenced by these thoughts. Queens. More royal news from our London mission. Sister Duchess Kate Middleton has whelped another boy, thus moving everyone else in the family down a notch. Two things worth noting. One,…

The French Resistance

For as long as I can remember, some Americans have had a problem with the French. Sometimes we see it when we don’t get the support in international affairs to which we think we are entitled. Remember “freedom fries?” This particular strain of American entitlement comes from a convoluted logic…

A Walk On The Wilde Side

“It is absurd to divide people into good and bad. People are either charming or tedious.” Oscar Wilde said it, and anyone who has ever been to a cocktail party knows how true that is. Well, maybe except the tedious ones. I’m not a fan of “reality” television. To be…

Righteous, Righteous, Righteous!

We must turn our gaze this week to Washington to pray for righteousness. Righteous. Merciful Heavens! The Resignation Fairies have been flying fast and loud over our nation’s capital. The latest to be hit be their wands is Speaker of House, Brother Paul Ryan. As a Christian woman, I am touched…
