God’s Word is SO GREAT! For me, it doesn’t matter who wrote it, or even why it was written or to whom it was sent; I gain by reading it. I learn of God and His ways, and how He shared His love and Wisdom to man over and over and over again.

A wise man once remarked, “Drawing on my fine command of language, I said nothing.” If you cannot speak with purity, the best thing that you can say, no matter how large your vocabulary is nothing. We read, “Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers” (Ephesians 4:29).

I come from a family of 350lb people. I used to be very close to that, myself. Why? Partly, genetics...mainly, choice. Let me tip you about choice this week. One of my favorite authors is the late William Glasser, noted American psychiatrist and developer of Reality Therapy and Choice Theory.

November is a changeable month. In some of our area, winter arrives and shuts down winter gardens. In some of southern Texas, it is time to plant Fall and Winter gardens. Harvest summer crops before the first freeze. Tomatoes can be picked while still green. They will ripen while sitting on the counter or window sill.

An apple a day keeps the doctor away. We’ve all heard this piece of advice meaning eat well to stay well. In yoga there is a similar piece of advice: A twist a day keeps the doctor away! All yoga postures, or asanas, have benefits but twists are especially valuable as they aid digestion, relieve headaches and backaches and promote the kidneys and abdominal organs to function properly.

The light turned green, we both turned right towards town. I was going 35 mph, but the trooper sped up going past the Shell station (no emergency lights on).

Editor, Do the Veterans and families of Veterans know that in the small rural communities of Blanco County there are only 1400 Veterans receiving the benefits that are their due? However, there are double to triple that amount that would have to drive long distances to apply for those benefits and get the proper assistance they so deserve.
