  • Just as we need food and water to survive, we also need meaningful social relationships and connections. Because we are wired for social contact, going without it increases the risks to jeopardize our overall health, well-being and life quality. While it is okay to feel lonely and to be alone at times, chronic loneliness can cause serious health concerns. Researchers continue to demonstrate how important meaningful relationships with others are to our mental, emotional and physical health.

  • Spiders can have a bad reputation. They are creepy-looking with all those legs stretching out from their bodies, and honestly, what creature should have six or more eyes?

    While there are dangerous spiders out there that we should avoid at all costs (black widow and brown recluse), most spiders are very beneficial, and if they are not right in our way, we should let them be.

    One such spider that is out and about during this time of year is the golden argiope or black and yellow garden spider.

  • As I write this article for the paper this week, I pondered and prayed about what to say. After a time, I came to this–Our country is being divided by an enemy that cannot be seen. I am not talking about race against race; the left against the right; social prejudices; all the protesting, etc.; or even our president saying or implying things he shouldn’t. I am talking about an enemy who comes to steal, kill and destroy. Jesus talked in John 10:10 about this enemy. Jesus called him a thief–I call him Satan.
