‘Under the Spell of Susan Boyle… ‘

Andrew Lloyd Webber is “under the spell of Susan Boyle” according to the UK Telegraph. It seems there may be a part for her in his musical, “Whistle Down the Wind.” Read the very interesting story here. Susan made world-wide attention when she “sang like an angel,” and shocked the judges and audience with her…

Hammered Gold

Two words captivated my heart… hammered gold… While in worship at the International House of Prayer in Kansas City one morning, my eyes fell on this passage from the Torah: Make a lampstand of pure, hammered gold. Make the entire lampstand and its decorations of one piece-the base, center stem, lamp cups, buds, and petals…

Hasselbeck Defends Palin

I do appreciate Elizabeth Hasselbeck on The View. I don’t watch the show because I can’t stomach its “view”–even with Hasselbeck there to balance the liberal banter a bit. But every now and then, I come across something she has said that blows a fresh wind on a subject. PS. I would not want to be…

I spent many happy hours at home watching the funny skits of the Carol Burnett Show on television.  The world was a simpler place then. This evening I watched a few of their…

Fodder for Thought…

  Here is some fodder for thought and a different take on the movie, “There Will be Blood” than mine. Here is my post last week where I wrote some of my opinions of the movie. 

Decline of Heroes

  The world is a buzz with the sudden and tragic death of Heath Ledger. I am sad at the untimely death of any human soul. Ledger’s passing made me ponder afresh the world’s clamor for a hero and ask the question why we chose people like him to worship. We are created to worship and the desire to…
