By Susan Niswonger / a couple of years ago

Gr’ma, Gr’ma, Gr’ma, GR’MA!!!! Caleb’s impatience was coming through.  I had promised him that we would go downstairs and play after I put Baby Nathan down for his morning nap.  Caleb has the patience of a 3 year old and although he may understand the word “later,” later occurs to him much sooner than it […]

By Susan Niswonger / a couple of years ago

Every year, after Thanksgiving, the controversy begins.  Should I say Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays?  Is it Christmas Vacation or Winter Break?  Can we sing Silent Night or should we stick with Jingle Bells for the School musical program?  Should we chance setting up the Nativity Scene in front of the court house, a Christmas […]

Certain Death

By Susan Niswonger / a couple of years ago

The nation has been consumed with Hurricane Ike for the last two days.  For a few hours even politics and Sarah Palin reports were pre-empted.  I was fascinated by the updates and progress reports.  The forces of nature have a way of showing how helpless and vulnerable we are even with the latest technological advances.  […]

God Does Not Negotiate

By Susan Niswonger / a couple of years ago

As a child I frequently heard the words, “BECAUSE I SAID SO!”  At that point I understood that arguing was futile and I had better get with the program.  When was the last time you heard a parent speak those words and mean it? We hold open the refrigerator door for 15 minutes while our […]

Connection Without Commitment

By Susan Niswonger / a couple of years ago

Fox News had a report on spirituality in America.  People are hungry for a connection with God and anywhere there is a hunger, someone is waiting to feed it; for a dollar or two.  A web site called E-prayer has been created, where for 7 cents a day and you can pick a prayer that […]
