Making amends is something all recovering addicts need to become good at. It's also something that every Christian needs to become adept at - every human being is called to such a task; a noble one in human terms because it's a divine mandate.


What Do You Have to Give to Others?

Mon, 29 Feb 2016 07:43:24 -0600

Funny how things change over time. Years ago, homes often had three or more generations living together. My grandparents were a powerful influence on my life.


Understanding Spinsters

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 07:19:38 -0500

Spinsters are a minority group in society, who have missed the 'marriage' bus, due to some reason. More often than not, they excel in their professional life. They don't play all the roles in life, which a married person does. Do they live life fully? Are they lonely? There are 'spinster' objects too, in every home. Any object not being used for 6 months at a stretch, qualifies to be called a spinster; as it is not being used and is ageing. We must donate such articles during our lifetime to needy people or else our children will do this onerous job, after we depart.

There are signs that you're a committed couple; you know each other's favorite foods, favorite places, interests, goals, likes and dislikes.

Relationships: Do Some People's Childhoods Set Them Up To Expect Too Much From Others?

Mon, 23 May 2016 06:31:04 -0500

If one was to go shopping and they were to speak to someone who works in a store, it is highly unlikely that they will expect them to treat them like a close friend would. In fact, they might not know what to expect from them.


Do Some People End Up With People They Are Not Attracted To In Order To Avoid Themselves?

Thu, 17 Dec 2015 06:23:28 -0600

While one can end up with someone who they are attracted to, they can also end up with someone who they are not attracted to. If they were to end up with someone they are attracted to, it could be said that they will be a lot happier.


Forgiveness - As Simple As Forgetting About Right and Wrong

Thu, 19 May 2016 11:37:57 -0500

Some time ago I learned a painful but fruitful lesson - people, all people, are sinners, and I cannot expect perfection from any of them, even of those who are mature in the faith. I cannot even expect them to behave 'morally' (it's impossible to settle on an ethic that could be fairly and agreeably applied). We're all corrupt. And this is wonderful news; we're all benefactors of God's gracious forgiveness as an example of the forgiveness we're to graciously bestow.


The Emotional Power of Touch

Thu, 07 Apr 2016 07:54:11 -0500

Touch is the human need that conveys emotional and physical closeness. Intimate body contact is required for mother and child bonding. The symbiosis of touch and being touched is what makes for intimacy in marriage. The significance of touch can differ in cultures and must be respected.


When the Best of Family Makes Us Sad

Mon, 04 Apr 2016 06:45:41 -0500

TWENTY-FIRST birthday parties are as poignant as ever, as was my daughter's recently. I look at my four living children, especially my three-year-old son, and note, with sadness, that they all grow up. The other three have proven that.

Relationships. Everyone's got them. You may be wondering how to maintain them and build new ones.


When You Are Being Nice, Are You Loving Or Controlling?

Tue, 22 Mar 2016 11:51:29 -0500

There can be a big difference in intent between being nice and being loving. Being nice might be manipulative, while being loving means being authentic.


Relationships: Do Some Women's Childhoods Set Them Up To Hate Men?

Fri, 12 Feb 2016 10:34:28 -0600

While someone could say that they hate a certain type of food, for instance, they can also say that they hate the opposite gender. It one could relate to the first example (or if they hated something similar), it is unlikely to have much of an effect on their life.


Things to Do When Feeling Lonely

Thu, 07 Jan 2016 06:24:40 -0600

Loneliness is a state experienced by everybody, even introverts. There is a difference between being alone and feeling lonely. Being alone; a state of being by oneself, is actually healthy since everyone needs a little time away from others to plan, consider, and simply rest. When you feel lonely, it is an entirely different matter.


Relationships: Why Do Some People Always End Up With People They Can Control?

Mon, 21 Dec 2015 06:48:03 -0600

If one was to read a description about what it means to have a healthy relationship, they are unlikely to come across the importance of one person controlling the other. If they were to come across the word 'control', they may hear about the importance of self-control.


The Transformation That Lasts Into Eternity

Thu, 24 Mar 2016 13:34:06 -0500

Manufacturers of cosmetics promise their products can transform an individual's looks. The transformation they offer is usually temporary, and requires daily re-application. The Bible promises transformation into the image of God through faith in Jesus Christ. This change is forever. He brings us from the devil's kingdom of darkness into His kingdom of light. Call on Jesus today!

Mon, 07 Mar 2016 06:46:24 -0600

While there are some people who experience deeper connections with others, there are others who don't. This means that the interactions that they do have with others will generally be surface level.


Family and Friends - To Regret or To Reconcile?

Tue, 05 Apr 2016 06:25:03 -0500

FAMILY celebrations don't always work out as we plan. Many end up with loved ones warring with each other. New wounds are inflicted or old ones are reopened. So much senseless grief and pain. There is hardly a more salient love than familial love - hurts more than it should, and we forgive more than we should. Rightly or wrongly, all this came to me in a single moment's vision.


Relationships: Why Do Some People Who Have Empathy End Up With People Who Don't Have Empathy?

Sat, 12 Dec 2015 10:06:56 -0600

Mon, 11 Apr 2016 11:37:42 -0500

Georgian and Victorian Intimate Secrets

Tue, 17 May 2016 11:01:11 -0500

The Georgians and Victorians have a stereotypical reputation as being repressed and reserved about their sexuality and sexual lives. This is largely undeserved as I discovered through my research recently.


What Are They Saying (or Not Saying) About Me?

Mon, 09 Nov 2015 07:45:19 -0600

Those of us given to analytical thinking begin to get consumed about what may be said. We always think about what might have been said rather than what might not have been said. So much so that we begin to make unconscious assumptions that build on our conscious assumptions, and sooner or later we start to make decisions about people on information we've made up. What a mess.
