A few years ago my son committed suicide, and I remembered my sister Bev telling me, “Don’t tell God how big your storm is, tell this storm how big your God is.”
It’s been six years since I wrote my first column, when I wrote about my former Sunday school student, Melissa, who died in her early 20s, and of the importance in making the most of our opportunities.
It seems that the holidays just pass by so quickly.
Remember the anticipation leading up to Thanksgiving?
The preparation, the baking and buying of items to surprise family and friends?
The smell of the turkey baking and the pies cooling?
The memories won’t ever go away.
If Jack Frost tries to nip you on the nose, or if the ever-growing shopping list is frightful, escape to Rantoul Public Library, where warmth and comfort abound.
With great books, entertaining movies, fine music and more, the library offers a revitalizing break you are sure to enjoy.

When Rudyard Kipling was 5, he and his sister were sent to live with a foster family in England. This might seem strange to us, but it was standard practice for English parents living in India who didn’t want their children to grow up thinking of India as home.
Bi-racial siblings (African-American/Caucasian), Danneli (age ten) and her little brother Addy (age eight) were accepted into the Copeland program and placed in our home nine months after the arrival of Carlos.
As I have said many times before, we must be consistently vigilant about discerning real information from misinformation in the media. Hate-filled apprehension has seethed from the right toward Pope Francis in recent months. In response, I feel compelled to convey and clarify his message of hope and love toward believers and non-believers, alike.
Wow, what a difference a month can make!
How heartening it is to see Americans finally waking up — albeit only when it hits their pocketbooks — to the disaster of socialized medicine and what a fraudulent, lying leftist our president truly is.
