How You Give

By Joseph J. Mazzella on September 18, 2017 / 442 views

I was a young, substitute teacher trying to make American history exciting to a class of bored sixth graders. I was going over a list of things the founding fathers had done for our country. Going off the lesson plan I mentioned that today people can still give a lot to their country, community, and people around them. “What do I have to give?”, asked a cynical voice from the back of the class. I...

Last week I was looking for something in the basement. I opened several tubs when I found some old pictures. Wow, what a surprise to find them! As I looked through several pictures the memory of these wonderful people and events made me smiled. At the time the picture was taken I didn't realize the value of that moment until it was now a special memory. Today's Bible verse is...

Today I heard a story about the game Monopoly. I remembered playing the game many times in my life. Sometimes it was fun and sometimes it was not. Very much like life! It's not always fun! We all gather around the table and set the board up. Someone is the banker and they hand out the money. As the game goes on we can buy and sell property. It's a great feeling to own Boardwalk, Park Place...

I Am Both

By Liz Petrone on September 14, 2017 / 742 views

I am both. I'm both "I NEED TO GET OUT OF HERE RIGHT THIS SECOND" and "I hope you don't expect me to put that bra back on and go anywhere." I am at once "why do my friends never invite me places anymore?" and "oh great, how am I going to get out of this one?" I am "for the love of all that is holy if one more person touches...

Red Light Myles

I'm sitting at my desk looking at a picture of "my friend Myles" and know I need to share our story. Myles is not really his name, just what I call him. That’s him though. The blur across the street, dancing and waving at cars roaring past. He changed my life. He is an important part of my day, five days a week. I think of that blur as my friend. This is how that came to be. For...

Do You Want To Get Well?

By Kay Heitsch on September 13, 2017 / 525 views

By Kay Heitsch on September 13, 2017 / 525 views

"Do you want to get well?" This was the question I kept hearing every morning when I spent my quiet time with the Lord. I wondered why the Lord kept asking me the same question. Of course, I wanted to "get well," or did I? These last few months since my son Todd's death had been unbelievable. The pain of losing Todd was unbearable. Because of the tremendous pressure I had on my chest,...

I was reading a book in my chair in the living room while my son watched an old comedy show on TV. Suddenly, I heard someone yell, “Go to your happy place! Go to your happy place!” I looked up to see the television characters panicking while my son laughed at the silliness of it all. Hearing those words, however, made me put my book down and think of all the happy places I have had over the...

I am not sharing this story in order to brag and if it sounds like it then I apologize in advance. I am only hoping that my story will encourage someone out there who is struggling like I was to step up and take their life and their health into their own hands. No one should listen to the negativity of others. If someone says you can't, then prove them wrong. My entire childhood, doctors told me...

When I, together with a friend, visited a professor of Gulu University in early August 2017, he took us to a cemetery bordering his home. It lies a few meters away from his home, in the South-West. At first both I and Angel, for that was my friend’s name, were astonished by what the Professor was doing. We were fearing to step into the cemetery; however, he told us to be bold enough to walk into it with...

Tree-trimmers Taught Me A Lesson In Random Acts Of Kindness

By Distillit on September 08, 2017 / 832 views

I knew that the trees in my neighborhood that were near utility lines have been under assault for the last couple days. I live in a low-medium income neighborhood where most people own their homes. It's a diverse neighborhood in a city in the South (of the U.S.) that is well known for a high crime rate for its size, but to my neighbors and I it feels very welcoming. People of many colors, cultures, and...

Treasured Memories

It's funny how little things can bring back a treasured memory. When our son Todd died his friends came over and chose things that had meaning for them. Much to my surprise several chose a spike out of his running shoes. These spikes had no value except for a treasured memory attached to it. One of Todd's friends carried this spike in his book bag for years. One day the book bag was stolen....

Several years ago I took a trip with my husband in a big 18 wheeler. This was a trip I will never forget! One very special memory took place in a truck stop restroom of all places. We were parked and I was relaxing, knitting some cell phone bags. I looked up from my knitting and noticed a woman carrying some shirts on hangers going into the truck stop. I knew she must be traveling with...

Many years ago I was asked to share my testimony at an old country church out in the middle of no where. I had no idea where this church was located, but since I was asked to speak I didn't turn down the invitation. This was quite an experience. This was before GPS and I started out not knowing where I was actually going. I had some written directions, but found myself lost a few...

How often do we judge people by the way they look? This week I was talking to some guys at Planet Fitness. They told me about their boss who went in to buy a new car. Little did the sales people know, but this man was worth a lot of money. The day he decided to buy his new car he walked in looking like a bum off the street. The first dealership he stopped in totally ignore him and treated...
