Mel Gibson's film, The Passion of the Christ, while being in many ways an outstanding film, does not stand alone. There have been passion plays, paintings, sculptures and even other films which depict the suffering of Christ. At the apex of these artistic expressions are the musical "Passions" of J. S. Bach.

Ooooooh I just have to tell you, something is going on at Rich's Restaurant over on Lower Huntington Road. I'm not sure just what it is but the food is getting better and better and the proportions are getting bigger and bigger. You really get your money's worth when you eat there.

My little Tubby Hubby Wayne and I stopped there for breakfast a few days ago and boy were we surprised. I ordered two eggs over easy, fried potatoes, sausage patties, toast, and coffee. Wayne ordered two eggs...

Reflections on Our Life Together

 

Life with others in any meaningful relationship requires commitment on behalf of all parties to a level of true caring that will require the very best from everyone, if the quality of that life together is to truly prosper.
