Dear Cousin,

 

The most spectacular snowfall of the season spread a fairy tale scene over our hills, and then turned vicious.

The evergreens were clothed in gowns of silvery white, while the leafless tree limbs were draped in garments of gossamer. The hills were beautiful from every...

An acquaintance gave me a dog this week. Same old story, "We love her, but she barks all the time. She needs to be out of our home by Friday". This little dog had been with me for about a week in December because she was biting and bullying the other two older dogs in the family. She learned very quickly to go to her bed in the corner for time out when she got too rowdy and to stop biting when told "No!" She learned to sit (for about 5 seconds at a time).

I wish to share a vision, a thought and a prayer. ‑If we have love in our hearts and respect for our family, friends, and all of God's creation, we then stand in the circle of unity, blessed by the Holy Spirit...

Child: Who was Julia Howe?

Mother: She was a woman from the Sanitary Service who believed there were two great goals in life, one was peace, and the other was equality. In 1862, President Lincoln invited Julia to come to Washington to show the Civil War troops how to be more clean, in order to stop the spread of disease. As she walked through the squalor of the encampments and passed from one campfire to the next, she heard the soldiers singing a song about abolitionist John Brown. James...
